Heart attack: One of the best diets to significantly reduce your risk of deathly condition

Red and processed meats are typically high in saturated fatty acids which cause an increase in LDL cholesterol.

Health experts explains this is the “bad” cholesterol that collects in the walls of blood vessels, where it can cause blockages and raise the chance of a heart attack.

Professor Andrew Salter, from the University of Nottingham’s School of Biosciences, said: “With a high saturated fatty acid content, red and processed meat has been linked to heart disease, and other chronic diseases, particularly colon cancer.

“Studies have shown that in people who eat the most meat, there is a 40 percent increased risk of them dying due to heart disease.”
