Researchers have found that drinking just one high-fat milkshake with a fat and calorie content similar to that of restaurants is enough to trigger heart disease.
The study shows that people should be very careful in everything they eat or drink, as even a meal can have a significant impact on a person's health.
High-Fat Milkshake Already Causes Heart Disease
The new study, authored by a team of scientists from the Medical College of Georgia and published in the Laboratory Investigation should appeal to all milkshake lovers serve as a warning.
The researchers discovered that they drink only one drink – a fat milkshake can quickly turn a healthy person's red blood cells into small, spiny cells that wreak havoc in the blood vessels, setting the stage for cardiovascular disease.
In addition, four hours after the day With the high-fat milkshake consisting of whole milk, ice cream and strong whipped cream, the blood vessels could no longer relax, and the immune system reacted as if the body had an infection.
The Sudden Shift To an unhealthy state was probably temporary among the healthy young men who were the subjects of the study. However, according to the scientists, there was a definite cumulative effect on people consuming such foods and drinks. The study can also help explain the isolated cases in which a person suffered a heart attack immediately after completing a high-fat meal.
"We hope to see this as a public service to make people think twice about it." said the cardiologist dr. Neal Weintraub, deputy head of the Vascular Biology Center of the Medical College of Georgia and one of the authors of the study.
"The message from home is that your body can normally handle it if you do not do it again at the next meal and the next and the next," Dr. Julia Brittain, a co-author and vascular biologist, also from the MCG Vascular Biology Center.
How to Prevent Heart Disease
