Your healthcare provider may have cautioned you not to eat a lot of fried foods. A review of scientific data helps explain that advice. Authors of the article in the journal Heart pooled data from more than one-half million people who had heart attacks or strokes. Compared to the lowest consumption of fried food, the highest consumption was associated with a twenty-eight percent higher risk of cardiovascular events and a thirty-seven percent greater risk of heart failure. The analysis also shows the risk rises with each additional four ounces per week of fried food. They calculate that each additional four ounce serving of fried food increases the risk of a cardiovascular event by three percent.
