5. Consumption of Red Meat

Health experts strongly recommend limiting the consumption of red meat to rare occasions rather than devouring it every single day, or even twice a week. You see, red meat is brimming with saturated fat, and along with processed meats like hot dog and bacon, it heavily contributes to the risk factors of colorectal cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Therefore, you need to make sure that your daily diet should contain less than 10% foods derived from animals and their by-products.

If you simply cannot imagine your diet without beef, try to cut down your consumption and pick out lean cut red meat. There’s nothing wrong with devouring a rich and juicy steak three or four times a month. But if you’re devouring it three to four times a day, you’re harming yourself a lot more than you can possibly imagine. Remember, a wholesome and balanced diet is the key to a healthy heart.

6. Lack of Flossing

Researchers believe that gum ailments are strongly connected with heart diseases, however, they lack sufficient evidence to validate the reason behind this claim. Several studies have revealed that lack of adequate flossing cause sticky bacteria-filled plaque to accumulate with time, and cause severe gum diseases.

Another study reveals that this bacteria also causes inflammation within the body. Inflammation encourages the symptoms of atherosclerosis, and once the gum diseases has been treated and cured, it also brings about an improvement in the functions of blood vessels.

  4. Actually our sleep is the most important thing in our lives. We will definitely die without Delta and Rem levels of sleep. Our bodies do not rejuvenate, memories aren’t made. Eventually, we become mentally unstable and are worse than perpetually drunk. And of course, it will destroy your heart, but in your madness, you won’t even notice. That’s why it’s called torture!! Sadly, some of us suffer from this disorder, and there is no cure. My specialist called it death by 1000 cuts.

  6. Sodium intake causing high blood pressure is only true in the short term – only of concern if you are already dealing with high blood pressure. As for the rest of this, bang on. My only question is how does one manage to get enough calories from vegetables and fruits alone? It would seem rather difficult – as fruits and especially vegetables tend to be very dilute sources of caloric intake.
