Think before you eat for breakfast sandwich with ham, egg and cheese.A new study suggests that breakfast fast food immediately has a negative effect on blood vessels.The study is preliminary in nature and is not aimed at comparing the effect of breakfast consisting of fast food and healthy food, such as yogurt and bananas."This study points to the danger posed by junk food," - said study co-author Dr. Todd Anderson, director of the Institute of cardiovascular diseases at the University of Calgary Libin Alberta.
«Even a single dose of junk food can have an effect - he says.- If readmission effect accumulates.Think before you eat fast food. "The goal of this study - to follow what happens in the blood vessels after eating fatty foods with high salt content. "
specialists attracted to the study of 20 healthy men, whose average age was 23 years.They had to pass the test, which shows how good / bad the blood moves through the vessels of the forearm.Some of the participants passed the test on an empty stomac
Anderson refused to sound firm making these sandwiches because, in his words, this information should not be the focus of the study.However, he says that these sandwiches with ham, cheese and eggs can be found everywhere.Compared with the participants of the vessels which were the test on an empty stomach, the vessels of those who eat sandwiches, two hours after meals work less efficiently."The ability of small vessels to expand and generate forearm blood flow was reduced," - explains Anderson.
Vasodilation promotes saturation of oxygen during exercise.According to Anderson, another study suggests that the disruption of the blood vessels over time, makes people susceptible to heart attacks and strokes.The study did not consider what happens in humans who consume a healthy diet.Anderson says that, according to previous studies, healthy food does not have a negative impact
.It is also unclear what happens in the blood vessels in the constant use of this food or that fast food (for example hamburgers or fries).
So what does the research?It suggests how the problems with blood vessels arise due to unhealthy eating habits."The high content of fat, salt and cholesterol can cause deviations in the vessels.And this, in turn, increases the risk of heart attacks and strokes "- says Anderson.The study was presented Tuesday at a meeting of the Canadian Congress on cardiovascular disease in Toronto.Publisher «HealthDay» contact the National Restaurant Association, but the comment at the time of publication they had not been granted.
Chris Fags, a graduate student of the Faculty of Health and Physical Education of the University of Oklahoma, consult wary of the conclusions of the study."It is very difficult to say how certain foods affect the health risks.In the case of food, there are many variables, - he says.- Drinking large amounts of the same food can also have a negative impact in the long term.However, use of the same food in combination with other foods may have a different effect on the cardiovascular system. "In addition, according to Fagsa, the scope of supply is very inconsistent when it comes to advice on nutrition for the prevention of cardiovascular disease.
Since the data were presented at a medical meeting, its results should be considered preliminary until published in medical journals, accompanied by an independent expert comment.
