Your vital organs (heart, liver, brain, kidneys) need a bit of the right fats to keep them going but excess fat will damage the same said organs.

The right amount of  calories and foods rich in good cholesterol  have to be consumed failure to which  you will have several health problems including reduced muscles mass.  When your caloric intake is too low, your body will search for sources of energy to just keep vital organs functioning and it will turn to your muscle mass for those energy foods. When this happens,  your metabolic rate will drop dramatically if you eat too little calories and after three days of low calorie intake this will compound your muscle mass loss. When you don’t eat enough calories you become sluggish, develop nutritional deficiencies, and you become very irritable.

It’s not only the fatties that are at risk of heart disease, skinny people who eat a lot of the wrong foods are also at a high risk of heart disease.

An obese person’s heart looks like the picture above and a heart like that will surely guarantee you a heart attack or other chronic heart related diseases.

Cardiologists the world over agree that these are the worst foods for your heart:

French fries

Sausages, hotdogs and other processed meats

Red meats including pork

Chips (both potato and corn)

Soda

Chinese food

Pizza

Canned soup

Butter/mayo/sour cream laden foods

Baked goods

All Fried foods and Fast food.

    The Al Shabab have been notorious in  killing innocent people. It is the high time that someone stopped them. Although I am disappointed that Saitoti had to wait this long for him to act.For more on Kenya and its security measures click on.
