An unhealthy diet can contribute to hardening of the arteries. It can also tax the heart with too much body mass due to obesity. Also, our blood has a precise balance of clotting and anti-clotting chemicals so that it doesn't clot within the blood vessels themselves. A dietary imbalance can change that equilibrium.

Is cancer bad for you?

Depends what unhealthy means. If unhealthy involves smoking then yes. If unhealthy refers to diet and exercise, I don't believe it's associated with cancer, but it can cause a lot of other bad things!
