Canned tomatoes-BPA in the can lining is a toxic chemical linked to reproductive abnormalities, neurological effects, heart disease, and more. Deli meats and processed hot dogs-made with meats from animals typically given growth hormones, antibiotics.  Eating these meats increases your risk of cancer, especially bowel cancer and NO amount is safe to eat. Microwave popcorn bags- are lined with PFOA and these chemicals when heated disrupt your endocrine system, sex hormones, and are carcinogens. Non-organic potatoes and other highly sprayed conventional produce-because they contain high amounts of harmful pesticides. Regular Table Salt- is refined and processed and contains chemicals like ferrocyanide and aluminosilicate and added iodine. Soybeans and any soy products-most all soybean crops are genetically modified and unfermented soy has been linked to digestive distress, immune system breakdown, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders, and infertility. Artificial sweetener-Studies have repeatedly shown artificial sweeteners stimulate appetite, increase carbohydrate cravings, stimulate fat storage and weight gain. With all this said I know many people still eat these foods and don’t know how to take them out of their diets or find better healthier alternatives. Processed meat ? swap out for organic grass fed beef hotdogs and nitrate free pastured deli lunch meats.
Artificial sweeteners ? swap out for stevia, an all natural sweeter made from the leaves of the stevia plant. You should not rely upon or follow the programs or techniques or use any of the products and services made available by or through the use of this website for decision making without obtaining the advice of a physician or other health care professional. Would you be shocked to learn that a number of foods sold in grocery stores across the United States have been banned in other countries across the world because of the harmful additives they contain?
If you have any of the following ten foods in your home, I recommend you ditch them pronto. Many foods have been heavily promoted as being healthy when they are nothing more than pernicious junk foods. Many leading brands of canned foods contain BPA -- a toxic chemical linked to reproductive abnormalities, neurological effects, heightened risk of breast and prostate cancers, diabetes, heart disease and other serious health problems.
High acidity — a prominent characteristic of tomatoes – causes BPA to leach into your food. As Koch warns, processed deli meats like salami, ham, and roast beef are typically made with meats from animals raised in confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). This means they're given growth hormones, antibiotics and other veterinary drugs, and raised in deplorable conditions that promote disease, these meats are also filled with sodium nitrite (a commonly used preservative and antimicrobial agent that also adds color and flavor) and other chemical flavorings and dyes. Nitrites can be converted into nitrosamines in your body, which are potent cancer-causing chemicals. Heterocyclic Amines (HCAs) which are hazardous compounds created in meats and other foods that have been cooked at high temperatures.
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs): Many processed meats are smoked as part of the curing process, which causes PAHs to form. Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs): When food is cooked at high temperatures—including when it is pasteurized or sterilized—it increases the formation of AGEs in your food. The truth is, processed meats are not a healthful choice for anyone and should be avoided entirely, according to a 2011 review of more than 7,000 clinical studies examining the connection between diet and cancer. The unfortunate result of the low-fat diet craze has been the shunning of healthful fats such as butter, and public health has declined as a result of this folly. Trans fats: These unnatural fats in margarine, shortenings and spreads are formed during the process of hydrogenation, which turns liquid vegetable oils into a solid fat. Free radicals: Free radicals and other toxic breakdown products are the result of high temperature industrial processing of vegetable oils. Emulsifiers and preservatives: Numerous additives of questionable safety are added to margarines and spreads. Hexane and other solvents: Used in the extraction process, these industrial chemicals can have toxic effects.
CLA is not only known to help fight cancer and diabetes, it may even help you to lose weight, which cannot be said for its trans-fat substitutes.
Good-old-fashioned butter, when made from grass-fed cows, is rich in a substance called conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
Of all the destructive foods available to us, those made with heated vegetable oils are some of the worst. Of all the available oils, coconut oil is the oil of choice for cooking because it is nearly a completely saturated fat, which means it is much less susceptible to heat damage.
Perfluoroalkyls, which include perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), are chemicals used to keep grease from leaking through fast food wrappers, are being ingested by people through their food and showing up as contaminants in blood. These chemicals are part of an expanding group of chemicals commonly referred to as "gender-bending" chemicals, because they can disrupt your endocrine system and affect your sex hormones. Infertility -- A study published in the journal Human Reproduction3 found that both PFOA and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate), dramatically increased the odds of infertility.
Cancer -- PFOA has been associated with tumors in at least four different organs in animal tests (liver, pancreas, testicles and mammary glands in rats), and has been associated with increases in prostate cancer in PFOA plant workers. Immune system problems -- Several studies by scientists in Sweden indicate that PFCs have an adverse effect on your immune system.
Increased LDL cholesterol levels – A 2010 study in the Archives of Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine5 found that children and teens with higher PFOA levels had higher levels of total cholesterol and LDL or "bad" cholesterol, while PFOS was associated with increased total cholesterol, including both LDL cholesterol and HDL or "good" cholesterol.
I strongly recommend avoiding any product you know containing these toxic compounds, particularly non-stick cookware, but also foods sold in grease-proof food packaging, such as fast food and microwave popcorn. Your best bet is to buy only organic fruits and vegetables, as synthetic agricultural chemicals are not permissible under the USDA organic rules.
In contrast, the following foods were found to have the lowest residual pesticide load, making them the safest bet among conventionally grown vegetables.
Processed salt is 98 percent sodium chloride, and the remaining two percent comprises man-made chemicals, such as moisture absorbents, and a little added iodine.
Given that salt is absolutely essential to good health, I recommend switching to a pure, unrefined salt.
While natural unprocessed salt has many health benefits, that does not mean you should use it with impunity.
The active ingredient in Roundup herbicide is called glyphosate, which is responsible for the disruption of the delicate hormonal balance of the female reproductive cycle.
Glyphosate's mechanism of harm was only recently identified, and demonstrates how this chemical disrupts cellular function and induce many of our modern diseases, including autism.
Even if you are not a vegetarian and do not use soymilk or tofu, it is important to be a serious label reader.
Besides soy protein isolate, ALL unfermented soy products are best avoided if you value your health. The only soy with health benefits is organic soy that has been properly fermented, and these are the only soy products I ever recommend consuming. Contrary to popular belief, studies have found that artificial sweeteners such as aspartame can stimulate your appetite, increase carbohydrate cravings, and stimulate fat storage and weight gain.
You may have heard the claim that aspartame is harmless because methanol is also found in fruits and vegetables. Methanol acts as a Trojan horse; it's carried into susceptible tissues in your body, like your brain and bone marrow, where the alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) enzyme converts it into formaldehyde, which wreaks havoc with sensitive proteins and DNA. Whatever food you're looking to eat, whether organic or locally grown, from either your local supermarket or a farmer's market, the following are signs of a high-quality, healthy food. Mercola’s guide is beneficial its possible to navigate and find REAL food options to replace the processed versions so you can still enjoy these foods. You are encouraged to confirm any information obtained from or through this web site with other sources, and review all information regarding any medical condition or treatment with your physician.


Seldom do we check the ingredients of the products we pick up at the supermarket.We just buy what is popular, without considering how it may affect our health.
Processed MeatsMeat preserved by smoking, salting, drying or adding harmful preservatives like nitrates is processed meat. Foods for babies and young children are among the food-like items in the US that include one of 3,000+ flavorings, preservatives, or other synthetic ingredients.
Often found in Mountain Dew, Fanta, Powerade, Sunkist, Gatorade, and Fresca, Brominated Vegetable Oil (BVO) was originally used by chemical companies as a flame retardant.
BHA (butylated hydroxyanisole) and BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) are toxic preservatives used in beer, cereal, meat, nut mixes and margarines. Farmers in the US are permitted to use animal feed containing arsenic-based drugs because of arsenic’s ability to make animals grow faster and to make their meat appear more fresh and pink.
Procter & Gamble created a cholesterol- and calorie-free fat substitute for us in fat-free snacks.
Commercial baking companies use flour “enriched” with potassium bromate to make their bread dough more elastic and better able to stand up to bread hooks. Find a butcher who sources from local farmers that raise their animals humanely, with access to sunlight and natural foods, and without drugs and hormones.
In the featured article, Clean Plates1 founder Jared Koch shared his list of nine staple foods that are far less "good for you" than you've been led to believe. According to Consumer Reports' testing, just a couple of servings of canned food can exceed the safety limits for daily BPA exposure for children. To avoid this hazardous chemical, avoid canned foods entirely and stick to fresh fruits and vegetables, or switch over to brands that use glass containers instead—especially for acidic foods like tomatoes.
According to research, processed meats are clearly associated with an increased risk of stomach, colon and breast cancers. AGEs build up in your body over time leading to oxidative stress, inflammation and an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease. The report was commissioned by The World Cancer Research Fund2 (WCRF) using money raised from the general public. Make no mistake about it--vegetable oils are not the health food that you were lead to believe they were. The oils you choose to cook with must be stable enough to resist chemical changes when heated to high temperatures, or you run the risk of damaging your health. Rancid oil is oxidized oil and should NOT be consumed—it leads directly to vascular disease. Microwave popcorn bags are lined with PFOA, and when they are heated the compound leaches onto the popcorn. Individuals with the highest PFOA concentrations were more than twice as likely to report current thyroid disease, compared to those with the lowest PFOA concentrations.
As described in a report on PFCs by the Environmental Working Group (EWG), PFOA was found to decrease all immune cell subpopulations studied, in the thymus and spleen, and caused immunosupression.
Clearly, if you're eating fast food or junk food, PFCs from the wrapper may be the least of your problems, but I think it's still important to realize that not only are you not getting proper nutrition from the food itself, the wrappers may also add to your toxic burden. That said, not all conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are subjected to the same amount of pesticide load.
Note that a small amount of sweet corn and most Hawaiian papaya, although low in pesticides, are genetically engineered (GE).
However, regular 'table salt' and the salt found in processed foods are NOT identical to the salt your body really needs.
One of the worst problems with soy comes from the fact that 90 to 95 percent of soybeans grown in the US are genetically engineered (GE), and these are used to create soy protein isolate.
What's more, glyphosate is toxic to the placenta, which is responsible for delivering vital nutrients from mother to child, and eliminating waste products. Soy protein isolate can be found in protein bars, meal replacement shakes, bottled fruit drinks, soups and sauces, meat analogs, baked goods, breakfast cereals and some dietary supplements.
There are so many different names for soy additives, you could be bringing home a genetically modified soy-based product without even realizing it. Thousands of studies have linked unfermented soy to malnutrition, digestive distress, immune-system breakdown, thyroid dysfunction, cognitive decline, reproductive disorders and infertility—even cancer and heart disease. After a long fermentation process, the phytate and "anti-nutrient" levels of soybeans are reduced, and their beneficial properties become available to your digestive system. In one of the most recent of such studies8, saccharin and aspartame were found to cause greater weight gain than sugar. However, in fruits and vegetables, the methanol is firmly bonded to pectin, allowing it to be safely passed through your digestive tract. All animals EXCEPT HUMANS have a protective mechanism that allows methanol to be broken down into harmless formic acid. Most often, the best place to find these foods is from a sustainable agricultural group in your area. MargarineMade from vegetable oils, margarine boasts lesser saturated fats than regular butter. Mac and Cheese, cheese flavored crackers, Jell-O and many cereals targeted towards children contain dyes banned in many countries including Austria and Norway. Farmed salmon is fed a diet of grains (often times genetically engineered), vitamins, antibiotics, chemicals and drugs that are unsafe for humans. The following foods are so damaging to our health that complete avoidance would be a much better idea! When fat drips onto the heat source, causing excess smoke, and the smoke surrounds your food, it can transfer cancer-causing PAHs to the meat.
Therefore the findings were not influenced by any vested interests, which makes it all the more reliable.
A US government panel of scientists determined that man-made trans fats are unsafe at any level. If you're still in the mindset that saturated fat is harmful for your health, then please read the Healthy Fats section of my Optimized Nutrition Plan to learn why saturated fat is actually good for you. This is largely due to the fact that they are highly processed, and when consumed in massive amounts, as they are by most Americans, they seriously distort the important omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. One of the ways vegetable oils can inflict damage is by converting your good cholesterol into bad cholesterol—by oxidizing it.
Trans-fats are introduced when these oils are hydrogenated, which increases your risk of chronic diseases like breast cancer and heart disease. For more in-depth information about the many benefits of coconut oil, please see this special report. Your thyroid contains thyroglobulin protein, which binds to iodine to form hormones, which in turn influence essentially every organ, tissue and cell in your body. While Koch focuses on potatoes, as they tend to take up a lot of pesticides and other agricultural chemicals present in the soil, I would recommend reviewing the "Shopper's Guide to Pesticides in Produce"6 by the Environmental Working Group.
Himalayan salt is completely pure, having spent many thousands of years maturing under extreme tectonic pressure, far away from impurities, so it isn't polluted with the heavy metals and industrial toxins of today.
Imbalance in this ratio can not only lead to hypertension (high blood pressure) and other health problems, including heart disease, memory decline, erectile dysfunction and more. Genetically engineered soybeans are designed to be "Roundup ready," which means they're engineered to withstand otherwise lethal doses of herbicide.
The phenylalanine has been synthetically modified to carry a methyl group, which provides the majority of the sweetness.
Not so with the methanol created by aspartame; there it's not bonded to anything that can help eliminate it from your body. Individual articles are based upon the opinions of the respective author, who retains copyright as marked.


For this reason, people consider it the healthier alternative.However, margarine is full of trans fatty acids (TFAs), or simply trans fats. Look for wild-caught pacific salmon for a much healthier alternative to the farmed variety. 45% of pigs, 30% of ration-fed cattle and an unknown percentage of turkeys in America eat feed enhanced with Ractopamine. I understand people have different philosophies on food, so if you disagree with one of these food items, that is your opinion and all opinions are respected. Most processed deli meats also contain other cancer-promoting chemicals that are created during cooking. When you cook with polyunsaturated vegetable oils (such as canola, corn, and soy oils), oxidized cholesterol is introduced into your system.
Olive oil, while certainly a healthful oil, is easily damaged by heat and is best reserved for drizzling cold over salad. The easiest way to avoid this imbalance is by avoiding processed foods, which are notoriously low in potassium while high in sodium.
In those children born to mothers who have been exposed to even a small amount of glyphosate, serious birth defects can result.
That phenylalanine methyl bond, called a methyl ester, is very weak, which allows the methyl group on the phenylalanine to easily break off and form methanol.

Roughly 1 in 6 US dairy cows are injected with such growth hormones, so there is a good chance your non-organic dairy products contain this hormone. Thyroid disease, if left untreated, can lead to heart disease, infertility, muscle weakness, and osteoporosis. Himalayan salt is only 85 percent sodium chloride, the remaining 15 percent contains 84 trace minerals from our prehistoric seas. Instead, eat a diet of whole, ideally organically-grown foods to ensure optimal nutrient content. It is intended as a sharing of knowledge and information from the research and experience of Dr.
One bottle of soda contains 44 grams of sugar.Consuming soda regularly spikes our blood sugar. This type of diet will naturally provide much larger amounts of potassium in relation to sodium.
I will try and stick to them Rain January 15, 2016 at 9:59 pm ReplyIf the wheat kernel composed of 2 parts (germ & bran), you cannot make a white flour sonce all are removed? Mercola encourages you to make your own health care decisions based upon your research and in partnership with a qualified health care professional. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult your health care professional before using products based on this content. Deep-Fried FoodsDeep-fried foods like French fries, potato chips, onion rings, fried chicken and breaded cutlets are exceptionally delicious, but also exceptionally unhealthy.Oil contains fat, and in order to deep-fry food, you need lots of it. Ram January 16, 2016 at 1:20 am ReplyThe best information and advices on health and nutrition to be found anywhere and all for free. Deep-frying is also a slow process, allowing foods to absorb a lot of the fat.Eating these fat-laden foods on a regular basis increases cholesterol and clogs arteries.
But when I probe a little deeper into their diet, I quickly find out that they are eating a lot of “health” foods you should never eat. Fruit JuiceMost people are generally shocked to learn that fruit juice (in abundance) is actually quite harmful for them. Toke Olabinjo January 16, 2016 at 5:17 am Replythanks for the information, I have being avoiding the eating of all these chemical laden food for long and my health is improving. Food and Drug Administration has stated that microwave popcorn bags are lined with certain chemicals (PFOA) to keep the grease from leaking out. Compare this to how long it would take to eat 4 oranges, and you can quickly see how eating fruit in its whole form is best.How many people can even eat 4 oranges at once?
These chemicals also increase cholesterol levels and, consequently, the risk of chronic heart disease. Consult with your doctor or other health care provider before using any of these tips or treatments.
If the body cannot metabolize the excess fructose in the blood, where else is all that extra sugar going to get stored?And last of all, even if someone theoretically drinks their juice slowly and stretches it out for 30+ minutes, they’re still lacking the fiber.By design, fruit contains a considerable amount of soluble and insoluble fiber to help aid the digestion process, help us feel “full,” and to feed the probiotics in our gut. Regularly drinking juice robs the body of this vital nutrient and is oftentimes associated with diarrhea and other GI concerns.2. Soy ProteinContrary to popular belief, soy products are not healthy for you; at least, that is, unfermented soy. I’ve written extensively on farmed fish and (in my opinion)eating tilapia is worse than eating bacon!
Even if you were to find some organic varieties out there, it still wouldn’t be safe to eat because microwavable bags are coated with PFOAs, a chemical that is liked to cancer.
As it pops, make sure you shake the pan to allow the steam to escape and prevent the popcorn from burning. Conventional MeatNon-organic, genetically modified meat products are absolute death foods and, absolutely foods that you should never eat.
Margarine You’d think that the “margarine myth” would have been put to bed years ago, but margarine is still being praised as a health food. Ever since it was created, margarine has been made out of trans fat, which are known to clog arteries and cause cardiovascular disease. Trans fat also increases someone’s risk of developing type II diabetes and several other severe health problems.
Butter is loaded with Vitamins A, E, and K2 (which is higher in grass-fed dairy).Vitamin K2 helps reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases, cancer and osteoporosis).
Hand-in-hand with margarine, vegetable oils like canola are not healthy by any stretch of the imagination.
Table SaltStandard table salt definitely makes my list of top health foods you should never eat. Pretty much everyone has heard that white table salt causes hypertension, yet that hasn’t stopped more than 95% of restaurants in the nation from stocking it on every table and food bar! Manufacturers use harvesting methods that strip it of all its naturally-occurring minerals, and then use a number of additives (including aluminum) to dry it and heat it to temperatures of about 1,200 degrees.Because it was destroyed, the naturally occurring iodine is then replaced with potassium iodide in potentially toxic amounts.
Finally it is bleached white.A much more suitable replacement is not even a replacement at all, but the original product! There are more than 10 significant health benefits of Celtic sea salt and Himalayan salt and I recommend that you start using either in your cooking.9.
Artificial SweetenersBeing “artificial,” you’d think fake sweeteners would be used cautiously by people. Unfortunately, many doctors recommend them because they are supposedly safe for diabetics because they are low on the glycemic index (16).Ironically, new research has shown that artificial sweeteners causes a disturbance in gut flora and can actually cause diabetes!
