10 Heart-Harming Foods

Hot Dogs

Hot dogs—ground beef, pig, or chicken with salt and other seasonings—are a popular meal. Ketchup, mustard, pickles, and onions top them on a bun.


Bacon has been a breakfast staple for ages. Cured, salted, and smoked pig belly is served with eggs, toast, or pancakes.


Sodas are popular, but they're bad for your heart. Sugar and artificial sweeteners in sodas cause weight gain, insulin resistance, and type 2 diabetes, which can lead to cardiac issues. 


Butter, derived from cow's milk, is used in cooking, baking, and toasting. Our diets need fat, yet butter is heavy in saturated fat. Butter can cause high cholesterol and heart disease.

White Rice

Many nations have eaten white rice for generations, but it's not always healthy. Regularly eating white rice might raise blood sugar.

Canned Soup

Processed veggies, broth, cream, or yogurt are used to make canned soup. Canned soup is flavorful and easy, but it's heavy in salt, which can raise blood pressure.


American hamburgers are incomplete without ketchup. Ketchup's salt and sugar are bad for your heart. Sugar and salt can cause high blood pressure, obesity, and heart disease.

Red Meat

Red meat includes saturated fat and protein. Red meat can cause heart disease and excessive cholesterol. Instead of steak and hamburgers, try chicken breast or fish.

French Fries

French fries, a comfort meal, are high in fat, processed carbohydrates, and salt. Fried foods elevate cholesterol and risk heart disease. Root veggies like sweet potatoes are healthier.


Another American staple, pizza, is unhealthy. Pizza is heavy in fat and salt, causing high blood pressure and heart disease.
