Cardiovascular Problems Linked to High Carb Diets


A recent study conducted on diet in relation to mortality and cardiovascular disease is an eye-opener for so many Americans.

“Topline takeaways from the Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology study (PURE), also published in The Lancet, were that high carbohydrate diets lead to higher mortality rates, while fats don’t seem to have much of an impact on cardiovascular problems.”

You Can’t Rely On Carbs

The study also found that many of its participants were getting most of their daily calories from carbs. While many diets suggest swapping fats for carbs, this study proved that’s not necessarily “healthy.” So many rely on carbs to feel full, but in the long run, those carbs may just be the death of you. The study proved once again that what you eat has a direct effect on how long you live as well as the quality of life you live. No matter what, a healthy diet and regular exercise routine should be a priority in your life.
