Foods You Should Avoid

1ba86a1bc33adac0546e47d5deda7004Some foods can seriously mess with one’s health. It doesn’t mean one will get sick, get cancer, or die if one eat a dangerous food once but one really needs to move far away from those types of food for health issues. These are some health foods you need to avoid.

Soy protein: Contrary to popular belief, soy products are not healthy for you; at least, that is, unfermented soy. Eating soy milk and soy protein is quite another, most people lack the enzymes necessary to digest unfermented soy, similarly to how many people are lactose intolerant. This causes indigestion, gas, bloating, and a whole bunch of issues. it is generally accepted that long-term use of soy dietary supplements like soy protein is unsafe because it has been linked to the following: allergic rhinitis (hay fever), asthma, breast cancer, cystic fibrosis, endometrial cancer, hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid), kidney disease, urinary bladder cancer and many more. All of these reasons are great reasons why soy is definitely one of the health foods you should never eat.

Conventional Meat: Non-organic, genetically modified meat products are absolute death foods and, absolutely foods that one should never eat. Even if it is “lean” with all the excess fat trimmed off, should never be part of anyone’s natural health regimen.

 

Margarine: Although margarine is still being praised as a health food, margarine is all about fats and cholesterol. Margarine is made from vegetable oils, so it contains no cholesterol. Margarine is also higher in good fats — polyunsaturated and monounsaturated — than butter is. These types of fats help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad,” cholesterol when substituted for saturated fat. Butter, on the other hand, is made from animal fat, so it contains cholesterol and high levels of saturated fat. Margarine has been made out of trans fat, which are known to clog arteries and cause cardiovascular disease. Trans fat also increases someone’s risk of developing type II diabetes and several other severe health problems.  Study showed that margarine, with its high transfat content appeared to increase the incidence of coronary heart disease. Saturated fats however have been found to increase good cholesterol and lower the bad, the fat-soluble vitamins in butter far outrank margarine. Butter is loaded with Vitamins A, E, and K2 (which is higher in grass-fed dairy), Vitamin K2 helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, cancer and osteoporosis). Butter also changes the structure of short chain LDL fatty acids (which are linked to heart disease) into more benign longer chain fatty acids.  If saturated fats are good, and margarine is low in saturated fats, then there is really no reason for us to consider it good for us.

Vegetable Oils: Foods again you should never eat are vegetable oils. Hand-in-hand with margarine, vegetable oils like canola are not healthy by any stretch of the imagination. They are usually genetically modified, are partially hydrogenated and have been linked to atherosclerosis, birth defects, bone and tendon problems, cancer, diabetes, digestive disorders, heart disease, immune system impairment, increased cholesterol levels, liver problems, obesity, sexual dysfunction, skin reactions, sterility,vision reduction.

Table Salt: Standard table salt definitely makes the list of top health foods one should never eat. Pretty much everyone has heard that white table salt causes hypertension, yet that hasn’t stopped more than 95% of restaurants in the nation from stocking it on every table and kitchen. Originally produced from sea salt, refined table salt technically starts as a real food then quickly becomes fake. Manufacturers use harvesting methods that strip it of all its naturally-occurring minerals, and then use a number of additives (including aluminium) to dry it and heat it to temperatures of about 1,200 degrees. Because it was destroyed, the naturally occurring iodine is then replaced with potassium iodide in potentially toxic amounts. The salt is then stabilized with dextrose, which turns it purple. Finally it is bleached white.

 

Artificial Sweeteners: Being “artificial,” you’d think fake sweeteners would be used cautiously by people. Unfortunately, many doctors recommend them because they are supposedly safe for diabetics because they are low on the glycemic index. New research has shown that artificial sweeteners causes a disturbance in gut flora and can actually cause diabetes, sugar substitutes have been clinically linked to allergies, bladder cancer, brain tumors, breast cancer, headaches, hypertension, lymphomas/leukemia, seizures, weight gain/obesity.

Whole wheat meal: Modern-day wheat triggers all sorts of health problems, everything from digestive diseases like celiac and inflammatory bowel disease to acid reflux, obesity, asthma, and skin disorders.
