10 Worst Foods for Your Heart

Oh crap, most everything I eat lands on this list  .Wonder if kosher dogs might provide better nutrition with less chance of increasing risk of heart disease and cancer.

Good thing I don't drink sodas.

[Hot dogs, bacon, sausage and deli meats -- even lean ones like turkey -- are made withloads of sodium and preservatives, often including nitrates and nitrites, both of which have been linked to heart problems. "With processing, you lose control over the quality of the ingredients," says Cynthia Thaik, M.D., a Los Angeles-based cardiologist.

Processed meats are also higher in saturated fat and lower in protein than any red meat you could prepare yourself, writes director of the Yale Prevention Research Center and HuffPost blogger, David Katz.

Not convinced to stay away? Processed meats have also been linked to a higher risk of diabetes and pancreatic cancer.]
