    6 Common Misconceptions About Heart Diseases That You Need To Know

    Heart diseases are the biggest killer in the country and yet, the question remains- do we really know how healthy is our heart? More often than not, as young adults, we take heart diseases lightly thinking that they only happen to your old relatives and fried-food loving neighbours. NO. That’s not true. Cardiovascular diseases are more often a result of your lifestyle and not a direct by-product of your increasing waistline. Busting the age-old myths that surround this ‘not so old-age problem’, we’ve made a list of everything that you need to know to secure yourself and your loved ones from the killer heart ailments.

    Myth #1: You’ll only get heart ailments if it runs in your family.





    While genetics do play an important role, a large number of people suffer from heart ailments more so because of their erratic and poor lifestyle choices. This includes not eating healthy (lacking the right nutrients and vitamins), poor choices like smoking and drinking, stress and little or no physical activity.

    Myth #2: All fats are bad for your heart.



    Many people believe that the easiest way to eliminate heart ailments is to go off fats, but that’s not true. Not all fats are bad for your body. The artificially made Trans fats, also called partially hydrogenated oils, are the ones you need to avoid at all cost. They are usually found in baked and processed foods that also claim to be ‘healthier’ options. Opt for foods with natural fats like cheese, eggs, avocados etc.
