Washington: People who consume fast food even once a week elevate their risk of dying from coronary heart disease by 20 percent, compared to people who avoid fast food, according to the latest research.For people eating fast food two-three times each week, the risk increases by 50 percent, and the risk climbs to nearly 80 percent for people who consume fast food items four or more times each week. It also increased the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes by 27 percent. University of Minnesota School of Public Health researchers found that existing studies on fast food and metabolic risk looked at Caucasian populations, the journal Circulation reports."We wanted to examine the association of Western-style fast food with cardio-metabolic risk in a Chinese population in Southeast Asia that has become a hotbed for diabetes and heart disease," said Andrew Odegaard, Minnesota post-doctoral researcher, who led the study.
