If you are following a high protein diet than this recent report is for you. A recent study says that the high protein diets like Atkins diet can increase the risk of heart failure or fatal heart diseases. This study had analyzed around 2440 men and notified that those who are taking a high protein diet are can face a 33 percent increased risk of heart failure. This is the situation where the heart is unable to pump the blood and oxygen around the body.
People are adopting Atkins diet as it is claiming to help those who want to lose weight. This diet is based on protein which terms to embracing low-carbohydrate. The researchers now tell that this diet is wrong to notify that an abundance of protein is healthy for a person. This study also tells that even those who are not following such diets but are eating protein-rich food such as fish and eggs are also at higher risk.
Those who look to have protein from animal resources had 43 percent higher risk of heart failure in relation to those who have at the least. This works the same for vegetarians as well. Those who are eating more dairy products are at 49 percent higher risk and those who are consuming a lot of plants are at 17 percent higher risk, the study mentioned.
Today, more than half a million people in the UK are facing the condition of heart-related diseases. This situation takes place when the heart muscles found to get damage. Professor Jyrki Virtanen who had worked on the study says,”As many people seem to take the health benefits of high-protein diets for granted, it is important to make clear the possible risks and benefits of these diets.”
Heli Virtanen who had also give a contribution to the study says,” “As this is one of the first studies reporting on the association between dietary protein and heart failure risk, more research is needed before we know whether moderating protein intake may be beneficial in the prevention of heart failure.”
