The Canadian Cardiovascular Congress recently reported that high-fat fast food breakfast sandwiches decrease blood flow and cause irregular blood pressure. Dr. Todd Anderson, one of the study’s researchers and director of the Libin Cardiovascular Institute of Alberta, says the meat and dairy-filled greasy sandwiches make “your blood vessels become unhappy.” The study monitored the blood pressure of college students after consuming a breakfast sandwich full of saturated fats and after skipping breakfast. Researchers found that blood flow was abnormally limited in those that ate a breakfast sandwich just two hours after consumption.
