How Diets and Monday Mornings Affect the Heart

Must of us know what a high caloric diet can do to our hearts. After indulging in such meals, our blood vessels constrict more and more. The long term effects of a regular consumption of a diet high on the calories scale can mean stress to our hearts.

But did you know mornings also add stress to our tickers? Mornings, particularly Monday mornings put us at a 20% risk for heart attacks to top off the already high 40% risk mornings the rest of the week bring us.
