The science behind cardiovascular diseases

Cardiovascular diseases are caused due to blocked arteries. When we consume a diet rich in saturated fats, these deposit in the arteries of major organs such as the heart, lungs, eyes, kidneys, etc. Over time, these arteries get completely blocked due to excess cholesterol. Blocked arteries prevent the flow of oxygenated blood to the affected organ. When the blood flow to the heart is affected, it causes a heart attack, Similarly, a stroke is caused when the blood flow to the brain is shut down.
