Angina

What some people use to commit suicide.
Butter.

Eating large amounts of fatty or cholesterol rich foods like butter, meat and eggs increases your risk of having a heart attack or angina. Especially if you are women over 35, a smoker, have diabetes, kidney trouble or high blood pressure.

Prevention ::
Reduce intake of animal and saturated (dairy) fats. Eat chicken and fish instead of pork, beef and lamb. Remove fat from meat, and grill meat rather than fry it. One egg gives you almost a day's quota of cholesterol, so restrict yourself to 3 eggs a week. Avoid cream and sweets. Use margarine instead of butter. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Use corn oil and sunflower oil for cooking. Increase intake of foods rich in vitamin E, C and beta carotene like whole grain cereals, citrus fruits, carrots and fish oils.

Also, if you are overweight, it is important to reduce. Regular exercise is also a must. Sometimes, cholesterol lowering drugs may be prescribed.

If you have any further queries, do consult your doctor.
