If the blood is not clean and cloudy, the risk of blood and vascular disease increases. An increase in triglycerides in the blood and an increase in bad cholesterol (LDL) can cause ‘dyslipidemia’. Following arteriosclerosis, in which blood vessels become hardened, the possibility of vascular diseases such as heart disease (angina pectoris, myocardial infarction) and stroke (cerebral infarction, cerebral hemorrhage) in which blood vessels are blocked increases. In order to live a long and healthy life, it is necessary to prevent or control vascular diseases. Let’s learn about unexpected foods that make blood cloudy. That’s not to say you shouldn’t eat it. That means don’t eat too much.
◆ Even if you are careful about food… If you enjoy drinking
If you drink too much alcohol (alcohol) frequently, the activity of lipolytic enzyme (LPL) in the body decreases and the level of triglycerides in the blood rises. It is best not to drink alcohol to prevent cancer as well as blood and blood vessel diseases. The European Heart Association and the European Society for Atherosclerosis (2019) allowed alcohol intake to be less than 10 g per day unless the blood triglycerides were high. According to the ‘dyslipidemia treatment guidelines’ for domestic doctors, one drink contains about 10 g of alcohol and limits it to one to two drinks per day.
◆ Eat less meat and fat… When you can’t stop ‘the temptation of sweetness’
Excessive intake of foods high in simple sugars, such as sugar, candy, chocolate, and soft drinks, raises the level of triglycerides in the blood. Blood sugar rises rapidly, which is not good for preventing and managing diabetes. The European Heart Association and the European Society of Atherosclerosis limit sugar intake to less than 10% of total energy. The guidelines for the treatment of dyslipidemia for Koreans recommend limiting the sugar content to 10-20% or less (Data from the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
◆ There is ‘0’ of trans fat in the cookie bag… why?
Frequent intake of trans fatty acids is not good for blood and blood vessel health. Currently, it is mandatory for processed foods to label the trans fatty acid content. However, trans fats less than 0.2 g can be marked as ‘0’. If you frequently eat processed foods such as sweets and muffins and fried foods, you can ingest too much trans fatty acid without realizing it.
◆ Excessive consumption of rice, noodles, meat, and sweets… The reason for being bloody
Excessive consumption of carbohydrate-rich foods such as rice, noodles, and bread can increase triglycerides in the blood. Excessive consumption of fatty parts of meat such as pork belly or processed meat such as bacon and sausage can increase LDL cholesterol in the blood. This is because they all contain a lot of saturated fatty acids. Saturated fat is found not only in animal foods, but also in some vegetable oils, such as palm oil used in some ramen and sweets.
◆ Foods that make you turbid… “Do not overeat. Eat less, in moderation.”
People with high triglycerides are best to cut down on carbohydrates. According to Korean nutrient intake standards, carbohydrate intake is 55-65% of total energy. To get energy, you need to eat about 30% fat. Excessive reduction in fat can increase the relative intake of carbohydrates, which can lead to an increase in triglycerides.
A lack of essential fatty acids and vitamin E can lead to a decrease in the good HDL cholesterol in the body. Therefore, it is necessary to keep the fat intake at an appropriate level. It is also helpful to eat an adequate amount of olive oil, perilla oil, and fish oil, which are rich in unsaturated fatty acids. In other words, it is better not to overeat the foods listed above, but to eat less and in an appropriate amount according to your health condition.
