      Yes it can and in many different ways. If our diet lacks iron then we are unable to carry oxygen in our blood which causes anemia. If our diet contains a lot of fats then these can be depositied in the areteries that carry our blood around the body, the arteries then narrow which raises blood pressure and can lead to heart problems.
