Prevent Early Deaths Cause by Cardiovascular Disease – This Food Spikes Death Risk by 17% (Very Common)
This food is so common that almost everyone eats it at least once or twice per week, and that is because everybody loves it.
But doing so would increase your risk of dying by a scary 17%.
Thankfully, there is another version of this food (even better) that has no health risk (and you’re going to love this one).
The new study published in BMJ identified 106,966 women between ages 50 and 79 who participated in the American Women’s Health Initiative study.
They completed dietary questionnaires in the mid-1990s and were then observed for around 20 years, until 2017.
The scientists split the types of fried foods they reported eating into three categories:
- Fried chicken,
- Fried fish, fried shellfish, and fish sandwiches, and
- Other fried foods, like potato chips/fries, tacos, and so on.
They also recorded how often their subjects ate each of these food’s groups.
When they calculated the death risks for all fried foods, they found that people who ate less than one serving a week had one percent greater chance of all-cause death, which increased to three percent for two to six servings per week, and to eight percent for one serving per day.
People who ate one serving of fried chicken a month had a six percent greater chance of an all-cause death, which increased to 12 percent for two to three servings a month, and to 13 percent for at least one serving a week.
Even fried fish posed a risk, with people who ate at least one serving a week increasing their chance of dying from all causes by seven percent.
The only ray of sunshine is that other fried foods like fries were found to pose no risk for all-cause death.
The statistics for cardiovascular death from fried foods are equally bad.
With regards to all fried foods being calculated together, they found that one serving per day was associated with an eight percent higher death risk that stemmed from cardiovascular disease.
Fried chicken increased their chance of cardiovascular death by eight percent for less than two servings per month, 17 percent for two to three servings per month, and 12 percent for at least one serving per week.
One or more servings of fried fish per week increased their chance of cardiovascular death by 13 percent.
Again, other fried foods did not appear to increase their chance of dying of heart problems.
The scientists ensured that death risk factors like smoking and obesity did not influence their conclusion.
The most alarming finding for both fish and chicken was that there is very little difference between eating them once or more a week and eating them two to three times a month. The risk of death seems to creep in at the twice-a-month consumption level, which most of us probably do.
It is possible that the damage is caused by a mixture of the omega-6 vegetable oils in which we fry and the fat in the chicken and fish. Both these types of fats are damaged (called oxidized) by heat and it is these oxidized fats that become harmful cholesterol once we eat them.
But you can prevent early deaths cause by cardiovascular disease and remove all oxidized cholesterol using the simple steps found here – and can therefore clear out your heart arteries and avoid a stroke and heart attacks…
Prevent Early Deaths Cause by Cardiovascular Disease – 9 Foods That Prevent Stroke
Academic researchers have found two minerals to be particularly effective at reducing the risk of stroke.
These are especially powerful at reducing this risk for people who struggle with high blood pressure.
There are nine tasty and cost-effective foods that contain high amounts of these minerals, and you can easily build into your daily diet to increase your chances of staying stroke-free.
A stroke occurs when there is an interruption in the flow of blood to the brain. Consequently, brain cells die rapidly due to the lack of constant blood supply, a problem that can leave the stroke sufferer either severely disabled or dead.
A huge study that had 34,670 women participants between the ages of 49 and 83 by the National Institute of Environmental Medicine in Sweden found, for example, that the intake of potassium and magnesium could indeed reduce the risk of stroke, especially in women with high blood pressure.
And in case the men are starting to feel left out, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard Medical School studied 43,738 men between ages 40 and 75 and reached the same conclusion: potassium and magnesium lowered the risk of stroke, particularly among men with high blood pressure.
It is relatively easy to stack your diet with these two minerals, as they are readily available in these foods:
- Spinach. From one cup of cooked spinach, you can obtain 180mg of magnesium and 180mg of potassium. Other dark, leafy green vegetables that are packed with both minerals include kale, collard, and Swiss chard.
- Beans. One cup of cooked soya beans (usually sold as edamame) provides 150mg of magnesium, while a cup of cooked white beans can supply 170mg of potassium. Other good options for both minerals are black beans and kidney beans.
- Avocado. Creamy, tasty, and a great source of both potassium and magnesium. However, guacamole lovers who purée it will unfortunately lose almost half of both these minerals, but that still leaves them with over 100mg of each.
- Fish. Mackerel is the best source of magnesium, while salmon walks off with the potassium prize. You can expect around 85mg from an average fillet.
- Bananas. With just under 100mg of magnesium and over 100mg of potassium, it is by far the most versatile fruit.
- Brown rice. It cannot get any easier to eat plenty of magnesium, with one cup of brown rice providing almost 200mg of it. Millet, which is a lovely whole grain that can double up as a breakfast cereal, is not far behind.
- Squash. Squash, in all its many varieties, is a brilliant source of potassium, with one cup containing anything from 150mg to 200mg.
- Pumpkin seeds. A tasty mid-afternoon snack with one cup supplies more than 100mg of magnesium. Alternatively, you can mix pumpkin seeds with other magnesium-rich nuts, such as cashews, pine nuts, pecans, and almonds. Also, another snack high in magnesium is dark chocolate.
- Potato and sweet potato skins. While these do not sound terribly appealing, they are some of the very best sources of potassium. Either cook and eat the potatoes with their skins, or grate the skins into stews and soups where they will not be especially noticeable.
The recommended daily intakes are approximately 420mg for magnesium and 3,500mg for potassium. If you eat 20% more of both, you will safely remain under the amounts where they become hazardous, while still giving yourself a good chance to remain stroke-free.

Prevent Early Deaths Cause by Cardiovascular Disease – Cardiovascular Health Determined By This Midlife Factor
We know that good physical fitness is important for cardiovascular health. But as we get older, many people have more difficulty working out and keeping in shape.
Fortunately, according to a new study published in JAMA Psychiatry, having good fitness at older ages may not be as important for cardiovascular health as previously thought.
That is only if we do something specific in our midlife.
Scientists analyzed information collected from the Cooper Center Longitudinal Study, for which data was collected between the years of 1971 and 2009.
They identified 17,989 people with all their data available and who did not have any history of cardiovascular problems at the beginning of the study.
Those that had high midlife fitness level were 61% less likely to develop cardiovascular disease during their senior years.
This showed that it’s important to keep in shape during midlife – even if we’re not able to keep it up later on.
Those with high midlife fitness levels were also 16% less likely to be diagnosed with depression when they were older, showing that exercise is a great antidepressant, even for cases of depression that could developed 15 to 30 years later.
Those who were unfortunate enough to still develop depression and who were fit during their middle ages were 56% less likely to die of cardiovascular disease than those who were unfit.
The authors sensibly recommended, as many scientists have done, that doctors should prescribe exercise for middle-aged people to ensure healthy and happy aging later.

This post is from the Oxidized Cholesterol Strategy Program. It was created by Scott Davis. Because he once suffered from high cholesterol, so much so that he even had a severe heart attack. This is what essentially led him to finding healthier alternatives to conventional medication. Oxidized Cholesterol Strategy is a unique online program that provides you with all the information you need to regain control of your cholesterol levels and health, as a whole.
