It is good to be actively aware of varieties of food items that might deteriorate one’s health. It is important to understand that not everything that is liked by your tongue will also be welcomed warmly within your digestive parts. We care only about the taste ignoring the harmful effects of delicious stuff that it might carry along. Routine intake of healthy and nutritious diet keeps you young and disease free. In most of the cases, delicacies that appear tempting do not tend to deliver essential nutrients and energy to the body, indeed they may be associated with high calories or poorly digestive ingredients resulting in high levels of bad cholesterol and gastritis related issues. Savor such yummy tummies occasionally is far better than including it in a daily diet plan. Your health is our concern, so we bring to you a list of 5 unhealthy foods which are harmful to your health.
Drinking plain water must be preferred over sparkling water since it contains HFCS (High fructose corn syrup) or artificial sweeteners. Soda water is acidifying in nature and variety of chemicals present in it overloads the function of pancreas. It is found that intake of 1-2 sugary drinks daily increases the risk for type 2 diabetes by 25%. Therefore, the consumption of such drinks must be limited to occasional use. Reduce the number of servings of sugary drinks if you do not want to add 17% more calories to your body.
2. Industrial Vegetable Oils
In the past few years, cooking has literally included refined vegetable oils, such as soyabean oil, corn oil, cottonseed oil or canola oil. More added fats mean high concentrations of omega-6 fatty acids which is a new or foreign product to the human system. More deeply, if I have to say, then these oils are carcinogenic (cancer-causing) and sensitive to oxidation resulting in too much oxidative stress inside the body. Do not take cover under these oils. Instead, the use of healthier fats such as coconut oil, butter, extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil keeps you free from a major or life-threatening illness.
Baked stuff like pastries, cookies, puddings, donuts, and cakes are generally packed with refined sugar, refined wheat flour and added fats, particularly very unhealthy trans fats. It is, of course, a careless gesture that we wilfully welcome these deleterious, yum treats directly into your body. Remember they hardly contain any essential nutrient. But are rich in tons of calories and noxious ingredients. Do not make them a part of your daily meal.
4. Processed Cheese
You should know the difference between the regular and processed cheese before its consumption. Slice of regular cheese is well supplied with nutrients (calcium, fat, and protein, vitamins A, B-12, zinc, phosphorus) similar to that present one cup of milk, so it is classified as healthy. While processed cheese is made with filler ingredients that are mixed and engineered to deliver a duplicate form of cheese. Check before adding it to the kitchen basket.
5. Tomato/ Pasta Sauce
Dr. Tanzi clearly stated that tomato sauce is a real culprit known to have tons of sugar. Do not bring canned tomatoes for preparing pasta sauce since cans or plastic containers are lined by BPA which is responsible to disturb the hormonal balance and may cause cancer or certain sperm defects. Pasta sauces are fully loaded with ample fat, salt, and sugar. So, I would recommend you to use homemade sauces rather than buying store sauces.
