4) Unnatural Beverages:
Soda drinks or certain bottled juices contain excessive amounts of sugar and are filled with other harmful chemicals that are terribly addictive.
Similarly, if you stick with diet drinks, many of these contain aspartame which is a known cancer-causing agent.
Some beverages, like small bottles of ‘energy’ contain up to 10x your daily sodium intake. If you need a caffeine boost, stick with a natural coffee, espresso or tea.
A lot of boxed fish and cheap filets come from Tilapia. But what a lot of people don’t realize is that Tilapia farms often keep the fish in tightly confined tanks which tend to breed cancer-causing organic pollutants.
Farm-bred fish also have lower levels of nutrition and contain sometimes dangerous levels of Dioxin, another cancer-causing chemical as the result of toxic water, which can take up to a decade to leave your system after consumption. Always stick to fresh market fish if possible.
6) Chinese Takeaway:
“Westernized” Chinese food (not necessarily the authentic stuff) contains extraordinarily high levels of sodium fats and carbohydrates. Some Chinese food chains will add Monosodium Glutamate (MSG) to their food which, although recognized as ‘generally safe’, is met with a great deal of controversy. This food is also high in trans and saturated fats which are large contributors to obesity.
7) Foods With Hydrogenated Fat:
Hydrogenated fat is a special kind of fat where hydrogen is pushed through the fat at an extremely high temperature, altering the state of the fat from a liquid to a solid.
This process can be harmful when consumed in excess and is almost like eating plastic. Foods high in hydrogenated fats should definitely be avoided.
