Is it true fast food meals are as bad as causing heart attacks
and how many fast food will it take to actually get a heart attack
That is a very broad question. However some "Fast Foods" are very bad for you as they can cause high cholesterol and obesity.
Many foods that are considered "Fast Foods" are very healthy though or at least neutral in their ability to cause harm. Foods with red meat for example can be harmful to people that are predisposed to high cholesterol and sodium as well as the many preservatives in many foods can be very harmful.
Yes it is very true, most fast foods are cooked in saturated fat. Which can eventually cause heart disease and many other health problems. Visit my hub about Fast Food vs Home Food.
Fast foods contain high saturated oils. Saturated oils are oils that are a solid at room temperature. The human body isn't that much warmer than room temperature and so these oils have a potential of building up in our arteries and veins. Heart attacks and strokes are caused by a clogging of the arteries and veins.
It's not that fast food means are as bad as heart attacks - it is one of the causes of heart attacks.
In addition, beef and chicken in fast food restaurants are of the lowest quality. Animals are mass produced and injected with high amounts of GNRH (growth hormones) and many others in order to maximize meat production not to mention they living in putrid cages of their own waste.
Fast food is horrible for your health, but many of us (like me) simply LOOOOVE the taste.
It is. The oils used in Fast food places are pretty much Peanut oils and vegetable oils. Those are high in cholesterol which one of the main causes in fatal heart attacks or blockages.
Yes and no. It depends on what you eat. My doctor said the french fries contribute to high cholesterol but not the burgers! It's probably best to stay away from the fried food (fries, onion rings, fried chicken etc.) Subway is a great fast food restaurant that offers wonderful varieties of healthy foods.
Fast food is a kiler. Lots of preservatives, saturated fat, salt and sugar. Only eat in moderation.
Th fast food is not the main cause. The food is not the most nutritious thing you can eat but the people who don't exercise and only stop at fast food restaurants to eat will be unhealthy and more prone to health issues.
Yes, chronic consumption of fast food leads to increase risk of cardiac disease. It also increase risk of cognitive degradation. Watch the DVD "Super Size Me". That guy went on a dangerous experiment of eating fast food for one month.

Why do athletes and people who exercise regularly still suffer heart attacks?This week a friend of mine who is a fitness buff suffered a heart attack. He looks good, exercises everyday and eats healthful foods. How did this happen? Is there any other way to prevent heart attacks?
