Some important facts and Information about Heart Health
A healthy heart is determined by the quantity and types of food you eat.
If you consume a diet rich in olive oil and nuts, you have a much lower risk for heart disease. I hate olives and olive oil but have added nuts *all kinds* to my daily food intake. From Peanuts, to Pecans, Hazelnuts, to Pistachios. I eat about 1/4 cup at least every other day. And a lot of fish, like tuna and salmon.
On taking Aspirin. Did you know that it can help heart attack patients avoid a second heart attack, but if you don't have heart disease, you should not take aspirin. (I did not know this and was told to take this low dose aspirin daily) Aspirin can be just as harmful as well as doing a lot of good. A study was done by the JAMA (Journal of American Medical Association) and showed daily low dose aspirin did not reduce first heart attack or stroke incidents. This was shocking but well received information.
There are also a lot of foods that are good for heart health and so I'm listing some of those here to let you know what you can eat to add health to your heart.
