The manufacturers of quick, convenient foods know too well that there is always an audience out there looking for a quick and easy way to fill up on processed foods. These convenience-foods are likely to deprive your body of essential nutrients and also overload your system with potentially hazardous substances. We look at some of the foods that you should absolutely never eat because they have no value, they are high in salt or sugar and full of artificial ingredients and chemicals which give the food a certain colour. Some of the foods you should avoid at all costs are –
Instant noodles contain harmful chemicals which are toxic. High amounts of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead have been found in the noodles and India is looking to ban a very popular company. However, it is not just about MSG, but even research done on them suggested that our body is not even able to break them down like other food we eat and other study done in Korea found that women eating 2 to 3 servings of instant noodles were at an increase risk of heart related diseases.
Avoid all fruit juices and sugar-sweetened beverages because just one can of soda can contain the equivalent of 10 teaspoons of sugar. This can skyrocket blood sugar and causes an insulin reaction. Soda contains phosphoric acid which slows digestion and blocks nutrient absorption.
Well it is not only about gluten. White bread is generally made from white flour, which has been stripped of bran and germ, and all it contains is starch and no real nutrition. Starch ends up increasing your blood sugar and the gluten is not only bad for the gut, but it can also have severe negative effects on the brain.
packed full of artificial ingredients and made with industrial vegetable oils that have been hydrogenated to make them more solid. This increases their trans fat which contributes to clogged arteries and heart attacks. You never want to have it in your kitchen.
We all love putting ham and salami on a fresh bread roll, but these meats are full of harmful preservatives like nitrates, and research has shown that eating processed meats contributes to diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
Those delicious pastries and cookies
Tea and coffee just wouldn’t be the same without a delicious pastry. Cakes, biscuits and cookies are very unhealthy, made with refined wheat flour and sugar as well as unhealthy fats such as shortening. Tasty treats they may be, but they contain no nutrients, just lots of unhealthy calories.
You are giving yourself the risk of many diseases by pursuing these toxic foods, and sharing this belief, thousands of people are turning to natural foods and to better health.
