Heart attacks can be prevented by preventing the development of atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries. Besides other factors, the occurrence of atherosclerosis depends on the level of cholesterol in the blood. The level of cholesterol depends upon the intake of cholesterol and fats in the diet.
Diet Control is therefore of prime importance. Of the dietary fats, the unsaturated ones, not only do not increase the level of cholesterol, but also lessen it. Skimmed milk is best as it has lesser content of milk. Butter-milk which is made of curd is very god for the coronaries. Vegetables oils such as ground-nut oil, mustard, sesame, sunflower oil, contain a lot of unsaturated fat, and are good for coronaries. s
Blood Pressure, which is when higher than normal, causes excessive stretching of the blood vessel wall and hastens its wear and tear. It accelerates the process of atherosclerosis. It is advisable to use less salt in the diet in order to lower the blood pressure and not depend upon drugs to do this job for you. Foods particularly high in salt are: pickles, canned soups and vegetables, sausages, hot dogs, ham, bacon, salted nuts, popcorn, potato chips etc.
Tip: Take the help of different spices to remove the bland taste in unsalted diet.
