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.

Nanny State PING!
What’s next, beer causes drunkenness?
That's why you don't eat just one.
I’d guess Nigam and colleagues are card carrying members of PETA.
Well, that confirms it. I am gonna die.
I once melted an entire glacier with a Big Mac.

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).
Heh.... Sardines instead? And what veggies. No taters, maters, corn etc....
Rather die of ACD.
“But there are no salmon in the Mediterranean Sea. “
Probably imported from China that were raised in a tank and fed human crap!
Which is the higher risk: Driving your car five miles to McDonalds and back or eating the Quarter Cheese meal and Coke you bought there?
