Stomach fat and heart diseases
Heart is the important part of our body because it supplies oxygen and nutrients to the whole body. Therefore it is necessary to remain healthy. There are many reasons for which there is a problem of functioning of the heart, one of them is the fat of the stomach.

This type of saturated fat comes from packaged foods, biscuits, confectionary, French Fees and other fast foods. This fat is dangerous because it increases the amount of LDL in the body.
You should use oils that contain high levels of PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acids). Using these, LDL’s level remains low.
According to the American Heart Association’s Advisory (2015-2020), if you use polyunsaturated fatty acids instead of saturated fat, then this reduces chances of heart diseases by up to 30 percent.
