Never Buy These Deadly ‘Heart-Healthy’ Foods

It’s normal to reach for anything on the grocery store shelf that is labeled “heart-healthy.” Since heart disease is the No. 1 killer among both men and women, it benefits all of us to eat better for our tickers. Unfortunately, some heart-healthy foods are falsely advertised. You could be putting something into your body that you think is good for you — but it could actually be deadly.

Not sure what foods have duped you into thinking they benefit this vital organ? Here are seven foods you should never buy again.

Pre-made, mayo-based salads

Not all dishes labeled “salad” are created equal. A salad full of fresh vegetables and some lean protein can possess all kinds of healthy properties. But the pre-made variety, like chicken salad, can wreak havoc on your heart. The reason? All that added mayonnaise. As Livestrong.com explains, even a tablespoon of the white stuff is packed with artery clogging cholesterol and blood pressure spiking sodium.

Luckily, there is a healthy solution to this harmful food. Skip the store-bought stuff and make your own — it’s the best way to cut out the mayonnaise and other harmful ingredients.
