Stay away from it immediately .. These foods cause heart disease
Doctors always advise to avoid starches and refined products, such as those found in pasta and white bread, and to adopt whole grains in our food to avoid heart disease.
According to Russia Today, researchers from McMaster University in Canada conducted a study on 137,000 people from all over the world. They were based on participants' food, medical, and lifestyle questionnaires.
And it turns out, individuals classified as eating high amounts of refined grains ate at least 350 grams per day - nearly a full standard load of white bread. And those who got the lowest dose consumed less than 50 grams a day - about a slice and a half.
Deaths from cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks, stroke and heart failure were then tracked over an average of 9 years.
The results, published in the British Medical Journal, found that the highest intake was associated with a 33% risk of developing serious cardiovascular events compared to the lowest intake.
Eating larger amounts has also been associated with high blood pressure.
Although white rice is considered a refined grain, they did not find any association between intake and cardiovascular disease, and they suggest that some types of white rice may have a nutritional advantage over other refined grain products.
The researchers suggest encouraging a lower intake of refined products while urging a higher intake of whole grains.
"Reducing the amount of carbohydrates and improving their quality is essential to achieving better health outcomes," they wrote.
