Months on red meat enough for a heart attack

We’ve all heard that eating red meat brings heart disease. And now it is proved that this requires only one month.

A new study has shown that just one Burger a day is really able to provoke a heart attack. Regular consumption of red meat increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases by increasing the level of organic component called trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO), which is produced in the intestines during digestion. This component provokes cardiovascular diseases, and eating red meat ratio is increased 10 times. Science has proven that due to rising levels of TMAO markedly increases the risk of strokes, heart attacks and premature death.

And now the first study of this plan it was found that people enough to eat red meat only one month in order for the indicators TMAO increased three times. Some of us have levels of the substance grows 10 times, compared to those who prefer chicken or vegetable diet. The study first demonstrated that the human kidney can change the level of withdrawal from the body of certain components depending on our diet as a whole, not only from salt or water.

“We all know that certain lifestyle factors are very important for the health of the cardiovascular system, and the current study was based on the results of previous works linking TMAO and heart disease – say researchers from the Cleveland Clinic. – We have further evidence that certain changes in diet can be a very effective strategy to reduce the level of TMAO and consequently the risk of heart disease”.
