Single Junk-Food Meal Can Damage Arteries
Personal Liberty Digest ^ | November 1, 2012 | UPI

Posted on 11/01/2012 7:57:06 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

TORONTO — A single junk-food meal rich in saturated fat is detrimental to the health of the arteries, researchers in Canada said.

Dr. Anil Nigam and colleagues at the University of Montreal-affiliated EPIC Center of the Montreal Heart Institute compared the effects of a junk-food meal and a typical Mediterranean meal on the vascular endothelium, the inner lining of the blood vessels. Endothelial function is closely linked to the long-term risk of developing coronary artery disease.

I’d guess Nigam and colleagues are card carrying members of PETA.

The Mediterranean meal was composed of salmon, almonds and vegetables cooked in olive oil...

But there are no salmon in the Mediterranean Sea.

What’s “junk food”? Anything with fat in it?

By the way, the human body NEEDS fat to dissolve some vitamins - they simply can’t dissolve in water (”polar” vs. “non-polar” molecules).

Perhaps this “institute” can also explain why northern explorers could subsist for months on a high-fat diet without dropping dead - or western explorers (and natives) subsisting on pemmican (1/2 fat, 1/2 berries).

Laugh it up funny guy. Just eat some junk food and don't come complaining to me if you wake up dead sometime after that.

Everyone who eats junk food will die someday. I am willing to bet on it.

The body naturally produces artery clogging cholesterol . Food not necessary.

What you eat or do has much less impact than genetics.
Lack of good exercise & eating is more of an impact for diabetes .

Ok. I’m not promoting junk good here though. I avoid baked goods & processed meats. Some junk food isn’t that much unhealthy in moderation.
Let’s take Norwegian folks for example. They eat lots of fish and get good omega 3’s . They have lower incidences of heart attacks but higher incidences of brain hemmoraging.
Americans have less deaths due to brain hemmoraging but more due to heart attacks.
In the end the reaper still gets its quota .

Yup, as predicted, they are going to use the tobacco model to scare and brainwash everyone about fast food. I still remember years ago the nannies telling everyone about how “Just one cigarette in your lifetime will kill you” Everyone laughed back then too, now they take that as gospel.

Be prepared for some real whopper lies about food coming soon.

[eyeroll] OTOH, maybe there is a lesson to be learned here. Maybe even ONE TERM is too much to endure from a nanny-state collectivist commie.

So....they tested 28 men out of a population of 3.75 million people in Montreal and now pronounce a single serving of junk food can (as in maybe/might/could) damage arteries?

ROFLMAO!

Talk about uncertain certainties....these people wouldn't recognize a scientific fact if it bit them on their liberalized socialist backsides.
