Foods That Are Bad For Your Heart

Large amounts of beef, lamb, and pork may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes due to saturated fats that raise cholesterol.

Red Meat

A small amount of added sugar is not harmful, but a can of soda contains more sugar than experts recommend for an entire day.

Carbonated Drinks

Cookie, cake, and muffin snacks should be rare because they contain sugar and cause weight gain. They also increase triglycerides, which can cause heart problems.

Baked Goods

Hot dogs, sausages, salami, and deli meats are the worst types of meat for your heart. They are high in salt, and most of them contain a significant amount of saturated fats.

Processed Meat

Moderate alcohol use won't hurt your heart unless you have high blood pressure or triglycerides, which can increase cardiovascular disease risk.


Deep-fried restaurant and fast-food french fries are high in fat and salt, which is detrimental to your heart.

French Fries

Fry chicken adds calories, fat, and sodium to nutritious cuisine. Fried food is connected to type 2 diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure, which raise heart failure risk.
