(KERO) — A new study shows how eating fried foods may increase your risk for major heart disease and stroke.

The research published in the journal 'Heart' showed when compared to people who ate the least, those eating the most fried food each week increased their risk of heart disease by 22%

Their risk of heart failure increased by 37%. The research also showed each additional weekly serving of a half a cup of fried food increase the risk of heart disease by 3%.

The American Heart Association recommends replacing trans-fats from fried and processed foods with healthier options such as olive and canola oil.
