Heart Bingo questions encourage the audience to participate and they promote further discussion.
What is the name of the waxy-like substance that can clog up your arteries?
Answer: Cholesterol. Cholesterol is not a fat, but is a fat-like substance made by the body and found in animal foods. If you have too much in your blood, it can collect on the walls of your arteries and other blood vessels. Cholesterol is not all bad. It has some very important functions in the body such as forming some important hormones and forming part of cell membranes, but your body makes all the cholesterol it needs.
These little vegetables are good sources of soluble fiber and can help to lower your cholesterol.
Answer: Beans, such as kidney, white, black, pinto (but not green beans). They also contain no cholesterol and are excellent sources of protein and soluble fiber as well as important vitamins and minerals. By eating beans often, instead of meat, fish and poultry, you can markedly lower your cholesterol level.
The type of fat found in this water-loving animal may have a protective effect on the heart.
Answer: Fish, especially cold-water, fatty fish like salmon, tuna, mackerel,halibut and herring. Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish help to decrease triglycerides levels and reduce the tendency of blood to clot. Studies have shown that consuming about 7 ounces of fish per week was significantly associated with decreased fatal heart attacks. Omega 3s are also found in canola oil,soybean oil and some nuts, seeds and vegetables. Refined oils are high in calories so you should use these sparingly.
