Deadly Foods We Are Consuming Daily

Jun 27, 2019 By Kayode Oseh

For you to live long and healthy, depends on what you put in your plate. What you eat on a daily basis could determine your future. To live until you’re old and stay healthy for the rest of your days on earth, you should avoid some certain foods. Some of these foods includes;

Margarine


Replace your margarine with butter, olive oil or coconut oil. Rich in hydrogenated vegetable oils and trans fats, margarine can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Soft drinks


Soft drinks are filled with empty calories that cause weight gain and therefore increase the risk of cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes and heart disease. You only consume the zero sugar versions and therefore do not feel concerned? You are wrong. Although they do not contain calories, they are just as harmful to your health.

Cold cuts

If you love a ham and brie baguette for lunch, you’d better change your eating habits. Several studies have shown a link between the consumption of deli meats and cancer, mainly colorectal cancer.

Sugary cereal

Many people are huge fans of sugary breakfast cereal. This is not surprising since they are filled with refined sugar. Their huge popularity is quite problematic though since most people who consume these kinds of cereals are young kids.

Chips

Rich in flavour but also in trans fat, salt, and calories, chips represent a risk factor for many diseases, especially high cholesterol.

Prepackaged pastries

Are you more of a sweet tooth? Opt for healthy homemade pastry and avoid prepackaged treats. These are filled with trans fat and refined sugar.

“Light” foods


Do you think you’re making a smart choice by choosing “light” foods instead of choosing the original option? Unfortunately, this is not the case. These diet versions are usually filled with extra sugar, artificial sweeteners and high fructose corn syrup.
