3 Foods That Destroy Your Heart Health | Dr. Mindy Pelz

  1. Processed meats: These often contain high amounts of saturated fat, sodium, and nitrates, which can contribute to heart disease. Examples include hot dogs, bacon, sausage, and some deli meats.
  2. Refined grains and sugary drinks: These can lead to weight gain and inflammation, both risk factors for heart disease. Refined grains like white bread and sugary drinks like soda are high in processed carbohydrates and sugar.
  3. Foods high in unhealthy fats: While some fats are good for you, avoid unhealthy fats like trans fats and excess saturated fat. These can increase bad cholesterol levels and raise your risk of heart disease. They’re often found in fried foods, processed snacks, and baked goods. Instagram:   / dr.mindypelz
