Be Conscious Of What You Consume, Cardiologist Warns Nigerians

In order to reduce the risk of heart-related diseases, Nigerians have been advised by a consultant cardiologist, Dr Ramond Moronkola to be conscious of what they consume

He gave the advice on Thursday during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, saying many of what people eat and drink are responsible for heart-related diseases.

He identified some of these foods to include bread, processed foods, pounded yam, noodles, sugar, Coca-Cola, Fanta, Pepsi, Seven Up and cassava, among others.

According to him, consuming these items on a regular basis can lead to heart/cardiovascular-related diseases.

“Cardiovascular diseases are silent killers and if not detected at the early stages, the sufferer is at high risk and can lead to sudden death.

“It is more expensive to treat the ailment and cheaper to prevent it by maintaining a healthy diet, regular exercise, checking cholesterol, and avoiding too many carbohydrates and sugar.

“We can avoid cardiovascular diseases by eating fewer carbohydrates but more vegetables and drinking more water than fizzy drinks,” he said.
