Packaged foods harmful for women with heart disease

A recent study revealed that women with heart infections should avoid eating packed food.
It was found that trans fats found in packed food could be dangerous for such women. Rodale Health, who accounted the study, said that women who consume at least 2.5% of their daily calorie intake as trans fats, are three times more prone to death caused by cardiac attacks as compared to women who take less than 1% of their calories as trans fats.

The study tracked more than 86,000 women to participate in the Nurses' Health Study & the result was published in the American Heart Journal. It was found that intake of trans fat reduces good (HDL) cholesterol & increases bad (LDL) cholesterol in women. That's how it fastens the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
