Avoid These Heart-Hurting Foods for Good!

1) Diet Soda

Artificial sweeteners, which are commonly found in diet sodas, have been linked to a host of health problems including heart disease, hypertension, weight gain, and diabetes.

Diet soda's sweet taste activates insulin. Insulin reduces blood sugar by enabling glucose into cells, making you hungrier and leading to overeating.

2) Low-fat peanut butter

If you choose low-fat, you'll miss out on the heart-healthy fats and instead consume extra sugar, which is bad for your health.

Low-fat and fat-free peanut butter substitute sugar for beneficial fats for texture and flavor. Added sugars are inflammatory and raise heart disease risk.

3) Ketchup

Ketchup, has a lot of sugar and sodium added to it after it is already processed. Added sugars, as previously stated, are a major dietary cause of heart disease. 

A high salt consumption is also a risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Heart disease and other chronic illnesses may be exacerbated by sugars that have been added or processed.

4) Canned soup

To ensure long shelf lives, most canned soups are ultra-processed and excessively rich in sodium. Blood pressure and heart disease are both linked to a high salt intake.

The greater the sodium intake, the greater the fluid retention. This makes the heart work harder, worsening certain cardiac diseases, the risk of stroke, and blood pressure.
