Doctor Alexander Shishonin: frequent consumption of buckwheat can harm the health of blood vessels.

Doctor Shishonin recalled that a person’s diet has a significant impact on his addiction to vascular diseases – in particular, a tendency to atherosclerosis, in which cholesterol plaques begin to grow on the walls of blood vessels. The doctor said that addiction to foods rich in sugar and carbohydrates significantly increases the risk of developing this vascular pathology.

According to Shishonin, one of the products that can negatively affect the state of the vascular system is buckwheat. Explaining the harm of buckwheat porridge for blood vessels, the doctor clarified that the appearance of atherosclerotic plaques in them is associated with inflammation of the vascular wall, and buckwheat contains substances that can contribute to such inflammation.

“Buckwheat contains natural substances that have been shown in a large Japanese study – can cause food allergies. Hidden food allergies contribute to chronic inflammation,” the doctor shared.
Also, in order to avoid problems with blood vessels, the specialist advised not to overuse honey. The product contains a high concentration of carbohydrates and sugar, which, if eaten in excess, can also provoke inflammation leading to atherosclerosis. In addition, a lot of carbohydrates are present in boiled beets and boiled carrots, carbonated drinks, fried potatoes – all this should not be in the daily diet.
