Fried Food Can Lead To Chronic Non-Communicable Diseases

Pizza, Hamburgers, Zingers, Nuggets, Fried Chicken or you name it, who doesn’t love such stuff? We even keep this stuff in our home. We take them in morning, evening and night. The time doesn’t matter. Be it nuggets or pizza, some steak or fried chicken, we can always, always eat such stuff. Right? I don’t think that anyone who’s reading this article would disagree with me. I really think so NOT!

Well, the thing is that this isn’t going to be your every other article. In fact, this article is to inform you of how devastated your health can turn into if you don’t stop swooning over this stuff. We all at least know for sure that excessively eating such stuff can adversely affect our health. But, how many of us avoid having it?

This needs to be mentioned here as well that eating such stuff in moderation might not have that many adverse effects as these can have when you’ll be eating in excess. That’s what the research says.

The research says that a person can become a victim of Chronic non-communicable diseases, which are also known as NCDs and as per the statistics provided by World Health-Organization (WHO), it is predicted that almost three-quarters of all deaths will occur because of NCDs. And NCDs can also be caused because of eating non-healthy or fried food. To know what NCDs are, and what effect this can produce in the long-run of a human’s health will be discussed in the following section of our article.

What Are NCDs?

NCDs, as mentioned above, are the diseases which are known as Non-Communicable Diseases. These diseases are chronic in its nature and are mentioned as follows:

  • Coronary Heart Disease (also known as CHD)
  • Stroke
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes Mellitus
  • Obesity

As per the research, anyone can become the victim of NCDs and it doesn’t matter whether you belong from a developed country or not. The myth about only rich countries becoming a victim of NCDs has long been ruled out.

It is also reported that almost 6, 78,000 people have been declared dead since 2010 in the United States because of taking the low-quality diet. It is also stated that the major cause of having a low-quality diet was the fact that most of the people don’t bother to include nuts, fruits, vegetables or seafood in their diet. Most of the diet that people pursue in the United States contain sodium in an excessive amount which is deteriorating for health.

People who consume Mediterranean diet or who live in Mediterranean Countries are said to have low risks of getting heart attacks. We have discussed the benefits of Mediterranean diet earlier in one of our articles. Hence proving that having a good diet is essential for health.

Contrary to a good healthy diet, a bad diet which is full of fat can actually lead a person towards having higher risks of heart attacks.

The connection of Fried Food with Cardiovascular Diseases

Although cardiovascular diseases are amongst one of the leading causes of death. The studies show that even after 12-years of follow-up, the cardiovascular diseases have no connection with the fried food.

The connection between Fried Food and Hypertension

People who switched their diets from unhealthy ones (i.e. fried food) to healthy ones (i.e. boiling food) were said to be leading healthier lives as compared to those who followed the opposite of it. Many people who followed the unhealthy diet were said to be vulnerable to hypertension.

The connection between Fried Food and Type 2 Diabetes

It has already been stated that people who consume more potatoes, red meat or other kinds of processed food or meat are said to be at higher risks of getting diabetes.

Conclusion

Although, avoiding fried food in its totality can be the best option but since many people find it hard to go cold turkey from their cravings, it is recommended to at least become moderate in your consumption of fried stuff.
