There are many risk factors attached to heart attack, few of them—including age and family history— are out of your control. However, there are a number of everyday food habits that can sometimes route to the potentially deadly event.

Most people already know how to avoid the most common risk factors for a heart attack: obesity, poor diet, and a sedentary lifestyle.

But according to Dr. Carmen Piernas, an award-winning nutritionist at Oxford University, there’s another common warning of the catastrophic heart event.

She said:

The most common dietary guidelines are based on the nutrients found in foods rather than foods themselves and this can be confusing for the public.

According to a new study led by Dr. Carmen Piernas, people who eat more chocolate, confectionery, butter, white bread, and smokers, less physically active, are more at risk of living with obesity, and having high blood pressure.

But adults who consume fizzy drinks, fruit juice, and preserves had an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and mortality – even though they tended to be physically active. They were also less likely to be smokers or living with obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol.

Women, under 60s or those who were obese in particular had a higher risk of cardiovascular disease, if they consumed a diet high in these foods.

On the basis of that, she highlighted the importance of daily food diets and how it “could be used to create food-based dietary advice that could help people eat more healthily and reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease.”

Dr. Piernas concluded that:

Eating less chocolate, confectionery, butter, low-fiber bread, sugar-sweetened beverages, fruit juice, table sugar, and preserves could be associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease or death during middle age.
