Types Of Meats That May Worsen Your Blood Cholesterol Level

Bad cholesterol in the blood is one of the main reasons why people have heart problems and, in some cases, even strokes. This is because fatty deposits that build up in the arteries can slow the flow of blood to the brain and many other parts of the body over time. When brain cells get too little or too much blood, they start to die. This is called a stroke.

In this article, we'll look at some types of meat that may raise your blood cholesterol level. This is based on a Cleveland Clinic article. Just relax, read this article, and enjoy it while you learn something new.

1. Red Meats: This kind of meat has saturated fats, which are bad for the body because they raise the level of cholesterol in the blood. If you have health problems like heart problems or have had a stroke before, eating red meat is like signing your own death warrant.

2. Processed meats like hot dogs are full of saturated fats, which makes them very bad for people who are worried about their cholesterol. If you don't want cholesterol to build up in your blood, you should avoid processed meats and eat more lean meats, like those with less fat. You should also avoid processed foods completely, since they increase the risk of cholesterol building up in the blood.
