A western diet, which is rich in fats, sugars and red meat, increases the chances of metabolic syndrome with 18%. A healthy diet with lots of vegetables, fruit, fish and poultry doesn’t reduce the risk for metabolic syndrome. This was discovered by scientists in the US in a test group of 9500 people who were monitored for 9 years.
The group that ate the most deep fried foods had 25% more chance of getting metabolic syndrome than those who ate the least deep fried foods. People who drank a can of diet soft drink daily increased their risk of metabolic syndrome by 34%, compared to people who didn’t.
