Western diet leads to metabolic syndrome, study shows

A new study showed a strong link between “Western diet” and heart problems, stroke and type 2 diabetes – or a metabolic syndrome.

Do you like hamburgers, soda and fries? This is for you!

And a surprising fact: drinking diet soda would not decrease the health-risk equation and dairy does.

People who prefer western diet have higher risk to develop metabolic syndrome.

The Western pattern diet (also called Western dietary pattern or the meat-sweet diet) is a dietary habit chosen by many people in developed countries, and increasingly in developing countries, characterized by high intakes of red meat, sugar desserts, high fat, and refined grains. It also typically contains high-fat dairy products, high-sugar drinks, and eggs.

The term is used to describe this pattern of diet in medical literature, regardless of where the diet is found, and is contrasted with diets which have higher levels of fruits, vegetables, poultry and/or fish.
