These seven foods are enemies of your health and should never approach your mouth! Packed with additives and chemical ingredients, they sow discord in the body, disrupt your immune system and cause illnesses … Focus on these toxic foods!
No. 1 Toxic Food: Sugar
Sugar is considered the number one enemy of your health. It is often the cause of diseases such as obesity and diabetes. Sugar also creates damage to the pancreas, liver and digestive system. The nervous system is compromised every time you eat sugar. But it is important to remember that all sugars are not created equal. The sugars found naturally in fruits and honey are beneficial to your health, provided it is eaten in moderation.
No. 2 Toxic Food: Flour
Seemingly innocuous, flour has the same effect as sugar in the body. It disturbs the operation of the pancreas and insulin levels. Indeed, during the manufacturing process, the most nutritious part of the grain and most of the fibers are removed. It therefore has almost no nutritional value.
No. 3 Toxic Food: Burgers (Fast Food)
The products of fast food such as burgers are harmful to the health because they are high in processed meats, sodium and saturated fat. Do you remember this case (extreme) mentioned in the documentary Super size me? This film has an American (the director of the documentary) that is fed exclusively on McDonald’s for a month, with three meals a day. Result: he gained 24 pounds in a month and his health deteriorated with lots of liver problems.
No. 4 Toxic Food: Charcuterie
Processed meats such as sausages are rich in nitrates and sodium, substances that can be hazardous to the health, causing many diseases and cancers. According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, the consumption of meat increases risk of colon cancer. Nitrates, when transformed into nitrite (once digested) can form nitrosamines, a highly carcinogenic chemical.
No. 5 Toxic Food: Donuts
All ingredients in the donuts are unhealthy! They contain white sugar, white flour and saturated fat. A toxic cocktail for your health. Indeed, consumption of saturated fat and sugar results in a higher risk of heart disease and diabetes.
No. 6 Toxic Food: Chips
When foods are fried at high temperatures, the presence of a known carcinogen acrylamide can be detected. According to Dale Hattis, a researcher at Clark University in Massachusetts, “acrylamide causes several thousand cancers per year in America.” Indeed, these are foods high in fat, but also very high in salt (sodium concentration). Chips consumption increases blood pressure and blood cholesterol and, therefore, increases the risk of heart attack and stroke. According to a study published in Cancer Science in 2005, a diet high in salt increases the risk of gastrointestinal cancer.
No. 7 Toxic Food: Canned Soups
Most people think that soup (canned or tinned) is a healthy food choice … This is wrong because most canned foods are loaded with salt! Some canned soups can contain up to 890 milligrams of sodium, or the equivalent of your daily needs. Sodium retains water in the body (and creates the water retention phenomenon), and disrupts cardiac activity by increasing the blood pressure (heart attack risk).
