An article in The Hill on Sunday reveals how to avoid an unnecessary and life-threatening heart attack and the importance of maintaining a healthy diet.
In the article, Dr. John K. McQuillan of the Johns Hopkins Hospital explains how to maintain a healthy balance of fats, proteins, carbohydrates and vitamins in your diet.
McQuillans research also shows that your heart can tolerate high doses of salt and a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, which are low in saturated fat.
In addition, McQuills research suggests that if you do not eat a balanced diet, you will increase your risk of a heart condition, stroke or other heart problems.
The article also explains how healthy eating can prevent and treat certain types of cancers and diseases.
