It turns out that regular chocolate milkshake is one of the most dangerous in the world. If a person drinks even one drink or eat one meal with high fat content, it will trigger unhealthy changes in the blood vessels and red blood cells, reports Live Science.
This proved an experiment with 10 healthy volunteers. They drank a milkshake whole milk, whipped cream, ice cream. The drink had 80 grams of fat and 1000 calories. Four hours after the volunteers drank the cocktail, analysis of the condition of the vessel. It turned out, the blood vessels have difficulty expanding, and some red blood cells change shape (become more acute, normally they are smooth).
Meanwhile it is known that changes in the shape of red blood cells associated with immune response. And this immune response can cause cardiovascular disease. And if a healthy person is described changes are temporary, this does not mean that you should not be afraid of the cumulative effect. By the way, milkshake was also a temporary increase in levels of myeloperoxidase, an enzyme associated with inelastic vessels and heart attacks.
