A recent analysis of diet studies claimed that there’s no need to reduce your red and processed meat intake for good health. “I looked at my Apple watch and my heart rate was 140,” said patient Holly Weiss. So she walked herself into the ER at The Mount Sinai Hospital where, after a series of tests, found that she was in congestive heart failure. Her cardiologist, Anuradha Lala-Trindade, MD, assistant professor of medicine, cardiology, and population health science and policy at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai had to educate her on the most important ways to get healthy. “One of the central elements of taking care of someone with heart failure is allowing them or educating them on how to control their diet. And one of the key things that we advise our patients to do is to limit the amount of sodium they take on a daily basis.”
