Ok, not here to preach, everyone can decide for themselves what they eat BUT, I went to a lecture at the hospital on nutrition and the lastest findings/studies etc and wanted to share the info that I found out.

This lecture was bent towards matters of the heart ie Cardiac research.

It seems that's what is recommended (heavily now) is the diets of Italy/Scicily/Corsica where heart disease is a lot lower than that of English speaking nations and there is various reasons for this, it seems we eat way too much Dairy products like cheese/butter/full cream milk and we eat way too much take away type junk food, most of which is very high in saturated fat, Im talking your KFC, Maccas, Dominoes, anything deep fried (Fish n Chips) and another big culprit is the full English breakfast, this isnt really a surprise of course..

What we should be eating A LOT more of is the diets staple of the places mentioned and these are Fish (fresher the better), good quality Olive Oil, Tomatoes and tomato paste, fresh herbs like Basil, Rosemary & Oregano etc and literally bucket loads of Vegetables and fruit, Pasta & Rice should be wholemeal (not refined white type) ............we apparently should only eat red meat at the most twice a week, but replace it with Chicken or Pork (and especially Fish)
Get used to not putting salt on your meals as this immediately raises your blood pressure for an extended period.

As far as vitamin supplements are concerned, apparently they can do more harm than good as they are not natural and have been altered, if you want more Vit C, just eat more of the foods that contain it..
So there you go, if you want your arteries to stay clear and unblocked follow the above rules and you might avoid heart attacks and major surgery in the future.

Go ahead ,preach! I'll join you! I've found two inexpensive books that for me tell it all with the modern diet. One is "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubs. It's a great explanation of why we keep our calories(fat) and what we can do about it. The other Is called "Wheat Belly" by Dr. William Davis. This book is actually fastinating of what is wrong with modern day wheat and why it's killing us. It'll blow your mind to read this book. I think our modern, genetically modified wheat is a major player in the modern food, based health epidemics we are now going through. I've all but sworn of wheat products and I feel so much better in a reaonably short time. You won't beleive all the things that wheat is in. You can get these books on Ebay or Amazon fairly cheap.
