A new study has shown that junk food hardens and thickens the arteries harder than previously thought

Testing on mice found two types of bad cholesterol, the culprit: LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and oxidized LDL.

The rodents from the US received a balanced diet or a fast food style. The second group quickly developed stiff arteries.

The team at the University of Illinois said: "To our surprise, a very small amount of oxidized LDL dramatically changes the cell membrane structure."
