Arteries are the blood vessels that transport oxygenated blood from the heart to the rest of the body. As you know, our bodies rely on oxygen for survival which means that our arteries serve a pretty important purpose. But sometimes our diet and lifestyle choices can cause arteries to become clogged which increases the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke. Any food that is high in cholesterol, saturated fat, and/or trans fat will likely have negative effects on your entire cardiovascular system. Instead, you can opt for the healthier options that we talked about earlier in this video.
