Fried Food, An Evil That Can Cause You A Heart Disease.

Fact or Myth?

Can a diet consisting of regular intakes of fried foods lead to heart risk?

According to a recent study published on the British Medical Journal the answer is “no”. The study, which followed more than 40,000 people from the mid 90’s to 2004, and separated them into groups depending on the regularity in which they consumed fried foods, found no association between fried food consumption and incidence of serious heart disease. But don’t put on your stretchy pants and hit it for your favorite fast food restaurant just yet! The researchers did find a relationship between the types of oils used in the process of frying (trans-fat rich v. olive and sunflower oil) and whether or not they had been reused. This study, conducted in Spain, supports an earlier one done in Costa Rica, which also concluded that the frequency of fried food consumption is not a cause for coronary heart disease.

Myth!

Professor Michael Leitzman from the University of Regensburg says “the myth that frying food is generally bad for the heart is not supported by available evidence”, but fried foods contain more calories which has been linked to high blood pressure and obesity. Furthermore, most restaurants in the US reuse trans-fat rich oils in their fryers which is actually associated with high heart disease risk.
