Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death around the world and people with diabetes are especially at risk – more than 65% (2 out of 3) die from these afflictions. Heart attacks also occur earlier in life with diabetes.
A healthy heart is a happy heart and taking care of your heart is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Eating and cooking and following a heart-healthy diet is the key. It significantly affects your risk and management of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke and cancer.
We know that small changes can make a big difference. One small change to make is having canola oil in your kitchen. It’s the all-in-one oil that can be used for just about any cooking application as far as fats and oils are concerned. Plus you can’t get more heart-smart. Canola oil has the least saturated fat of all common culinary oils and is free of trans fat and cholesterol.
