Avoid late dinners to prevent heart attack: study

People with heart disease and other illnesses such as diabetes should better avoid late night dinners, a study by Mexican researchers said. The researchers found that rats were less able to clear fats from their bloodstream after being fed at a time when they would be resting. This was because fat from food remained longer as triglycerides in the bloodstream. High levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream increase the risk of heart attacks.
