Mexican Diet Worse Than Fast Food Diet

Posted:

A new study shows eating Mexican food can be worse for you than eating fast food.

Researchers in Mexico found the diet is more dangerous than fast food because it's a combination of fried–food, junk food and soft drinks.

When combined with a sedentary lifestyle, of little to no exercise, it raises the risk of obesity and obesity–related disease like diabetes, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases.

In one year from 2009 to 20–10, the number of obesity–related deaths went up by nine and a half percent in Mexico.

Dr. Enrique C. Morales Villegas, director of the Cardiometabolic Research Centre in Aguascalientes, Mexico who conducted this study says, " The prevalence of overweight and obesity in Mexico is one of the highest in the world."
