  Uncle E's Wings & Things
* * * * *
Uncle E's Wings and Things is one of Baton Rouge's best burger dives offering a unique menu packaged in a cozy lunch box location. After scanning the very diverse menu, "The Apostle" Burger was the choice. Wow!!!! This burger was massive!. With three homemade juicy ground beef patties, hot sausage links,bacon, and cheese, I immediately new this was not your average burger. From the first bite to the last I was totally emerged in comfort food paradise. While each element held it's own, the marriage of flavors proved to be a spectacular experience bundled into one sandwich. The staff was friendly, but the wait was a bit lengthy. However the reward was a fantastic meal at a fantastic restaurant. I will be back!!!!!

The following risk factors may increase the risk of heart disease
1. High cholesterol
High cholesterol can be extremely dangerous, and particularly it can cause atherosclerosis, or a hardening of the arteries, which sequentially can lead to blocked coronary arteries, marked by chest pain, or a heart attack. Other severe problems such as blocked arteries to the brain, for example, can result in a stroke, while blocked arteries in the legs can create pain, limping and even disability.

2. Hypertension or high blood pressure
Hypertensive heart disease is on the whole a more serious and dangerous form of heart disease and it is normally caused by uncontrolled and extended elevation of blood pressure, as this can lead to various changes in the myocardial structure, coronary vasculature, and conduction system of the heart.

3. Stress
There are two types of stress: physical stress and emotional stress. The physical stress places quantifiable and reproducible demands on the heart, and it is this physical stress which is usually accredited as being good and in fact, the lack of physical stress is what considered as being a major risk factor for heart disease.

4. Smoking
The carcinogens found in cigarettes are part of the relationship between smoking and heart disease. These substances that are in the cigarette are absorbed into the blood stream. As a result, the blood becomes contaminated. As this blood is pumped through the heart, the nicotine from the cigarettes also develops in the blood stream. As an outcome, the blood becomes thick, which can create clotting. Also, the nicotine will develop in the valves leading to the heart, which increases the risk of heart attack.
