9 Foods You Should Never Attempt To Eat (12 Pics)


Food manufacturers often market their goods as healthy even though they are very bad for your health. The problem lies in their promotional tricks where those companies often use things like “All-Natural Food”, or “Sugar-Free” food. However, even if that food is, in fact, all natural and sugar-free, it doesn’t mean that it is healthy for you to eat. Take poisonous mushrooms for example. They are all-natural and sugar-free, but are they healthy?

Canned Tomatoes

All canned foods contain BPA. It stands for bisphenol A. It is an industrial chemical that has been used in industry, to make plastics and resins. However, this chemical is used in containers that store food and beverages. Those Epoxy resins are used to coat the inside of metal products like food cans, bottle caps, and water supply lines.

And of course, some of those elements get into foods and beverages. Exposure to those chemicals can have an effect on the brain, the increased risk of breast and prostate cancer, diabetes, heart disease and other health problems. The Food and Drug Administration, on the other hand, said that BPA is actually safe at those extremely low levels that occur in some foods. However, a tomato has high acidity, and that can make BPA get right into your food.

Processed Meat

A lousy diet leads to cancer. That has been determined through a 2011 research which involved more than 7,000 clinical studies. The biggest problem lies in the origin of that meat. It mostly comes from animals that are raised in animal feeding farms. That kinds of farms feed animals with growth hormones, antibiotics, some other drugs, and on the top of all nitrite. They use that nitrite to add flavor and color to the food. That nitrite converts into nitrosamines in your body and that is a strong cancer-causing chemical.

Margarine

The biggest problem with margarine is that it contains trans-fat. That is not a natural fat. The real natural saturated fats or fatty acids actually improve brain and memory function and it increases good cholesterol and promotes heart health. For example, natural fats you find in coconut oil also have anti-inflammatory effects and it helps reduce arthritis. You can find good natural fat in avocados, butter & Ghee, extra virgin olive oil, fish, nuts and seeds, eggs, grass-fed organic beef, full-fat dairy, dark chocolate, etc. However, in margarine, you can only find trans-fat which yearly causes between 72,000 and 228,000 heart attacks in the US.

So the easiest solution is to buy butter made from grass-eating cows.

Vegetable Oil

When heated, this type of oil causes damage by changing the good cholesterol into bad cholesterol. When that oil is heated and mixed with oxygen, it quickly becomes rancid. This type of substance can cause vascular disease. And also, this type of oil often contains trans-fats. And we already know that they are bad for us.

This kind of popcorn has perfluorooctanoic acid which has also been detected in industrial waste, stain-resistant carpets, carpet cleaning liquids, house dust, water, food, some cookware, and PTFE products. Both PFOA and perfluorooctane sulfonate show up as contaminants in our blood. They cause infertility and an increased LDL cholesterol levels.

Non-Organic Potatoes

You should always buy organic food because they don’t have any synthetic agricultural chemicals. That especially applies to tomatoes because they had the highest rate of pesticide load out of 48 different vegetables that were tested back in 2013.

Table Salt

We need salt to live. Salt (sodium chloride) is our main source of that mineral. It helps our muscles contract, sends nerve impulses throughout our bodies, and it regulates fluid balance. Our daily intake of sodium has to be between 1,500 and 2,300 milligrams. Anything above or below that is bad for our bodies. However, table salt is not only sodium chloride. The other two percent are man-made chemicals like iodine, ferrocyanide, and aluminosilicate – which are all bad for our bodies.

Soy Protein Isolate

The problem with soybean is that 95% of it is a genetically engineered protein isolate. And they make this kind of soybean so it can survive all kinds of herbicides.

The only soy that could have health benefits is organic soy. It is naturally fermented and that is the only product made of soy that is recommended.

Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial sweeteners only stimulate your hunger for more carbohydrates and make you fat. And on the top of that, official reports proved that artificial sweeteners like aspartame and saccharin cause more weight gain than sugar.

Those artificial sweeteners also induce glucose intolerance which causes diabetes.
