11 Food Items You Would Never Buy Once You Know What They Are Made of

Oh! Who doesn’t love lip-smacking and healthy food? Most people think labels like, ‘sugar-free,’ ‘organic,’ ‘all naturals’ are the buzzwords towards their healthy diet. But when you probe deeper into some of your favorite food items, you’ll quickly want to quit eating them. Some of you might even inquire before choosing the right kind of food, yet, there are foods from which you need to stay away.

Here are some common, daily life items that you should cross out from your grocery list. Take note!

This mouthwatering delight is everybody’s favorite. Be it movies night or just sleep over with friends; buttered microwave popcorn is commonly preferred. But is the butter coating healthy to even taste?

The microwaveable bags are coated thinly with non-perfluorochemicals like perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) that are likely to cause cancer.

We suggest you make your popcorn using real butter. You can either pop it on a stovetop or just add a handful of kernels into a brown paper bag and let it pop in the microwave. This way it is lower on the cost as well as

your health.

Also known as sugar-substitute, artificial sweetener is a food additive that provides a sweet taste. Some sweeteners are produced naturally and some, synthetically. Certainly, they are low on energy.

Aspartame is said to be the most threatening substance on the market, mainly found in ‘diet’ food – when your body processes aspartame, it is broken down into methanol, which is highly toxic. Artificial sweeteners cause obesity and eventually, diabetes.

We suggest you shift to natural sweeteners, like honey, brown sugar or maple syrup, all of which contains a high profile of minerals and vitamins. And these are gentle to your waistline, also the sweetest.

Seafood is a favorite among a large number of people worldwide. But it is essential to know that what sort of fish you should include in your diet.

Dr. Axe, the expert in food and medicine, has reported that eating tilapia (and other farmed fish) is worse than eating bacon. Environment pollutants cause dioxin level to rise in the farm-raised fish 11 times higher than that in wild fish. These contaminants, like mercury, cause cancer, organ damage and immune system dysfunction. Fishes, like swordfish, are highly recommended to women pregnant or who want to become pregnant.

As per recommendation you should look for fish that are low in contamination and are stable in population. For high Omega-3, we suggest that you go for wild fish such as Alaskan salmon, Atlantic mackerel and Snakehead fish.

Soybean is found in many products like soymilk, soy sauce and also miso that are added to bread and cereal. As it belongs to the bean family, soy is believed to be healthy. But is it?

 thechangepost/shutterstock

There is a huge difference in eating fermented and unfermented soy products. Soy is genetically modified to make it edible. Soy is supposed to cause Allergic rhinitis (hay fever), asthma, breast cancer, cystic fibrosis,
endometrial cancer etc. Therefore, it is not recommended to have soy or soy products in your elementary diet.

If you love the flavor of soy, we recommend you use coconut amino instead. If it still doesn’t suit your taste buds, choose fermented soy products, which are lighter to your health and are risk-free.

C

hicken, pigs, and cattle found on the market these days are mostly factory farmed. Factory farmed livestock are certainly heavy in mass and juicy in taste, but are they becoming the healthy part of you?

Things that you’re grilling up for dinner is fed hormones, drugs, and an unnatural diet and using chemical pesticides and fertilizers. When you eat these synthetic compounds, they become a part of your body and mess up your inner processes like menstruation cycle and pregnancy complications in women.

We recommend you to know your local meat suppliers. Be familiar what the ranchers and growers feed their livestock. A little research may save you from unwanted health complications.

Margarine, ideal for one’s taste buds, is an imitation of butter spread used in spreading, baking, and cooking. It is used as ingredients in many baking products.

 thechangepost/shutterstock

Initially, it was believed that margarine contains low saturated fat, but sadly margarine contains trans fats, which has reported to cause 50,000 fatal heart attacks. Trans fats also increase the chances of developing type II diabetes and many other health issues.

We recommend you use natural ghee, butter or, the best choice, coconut oil.

Table salt is utilized in every other household. Real mined-salt becomes fake when farmers use additives to dry it and heat it higher temperature.

 thechangepost/shutterstock

Common table salt has synthetic chemicals added to them. These chemicals include everything from manufactured forms of sodium solo-co-aluminate, iodide, sodium bicarbonate, fluoride, anti-caking agents, and toxins such as potassium iodide and aluminum derivatives. It may come as a shock, but table salt is not only unhealthy, but at times it’s highly toxic and causes hypertension.

We suggest you use Himalayan and Celtic sea salt, which is extracted in all natural means. If this is unavailable in stores nearby you, we suggest you reduce the salt usage in your cooking.

Canning has a long history. Back in the 18th-century, food preserved in bottles was used to keep the Napoleon armies fed. Interesting much? But what’s more interesting are the health hazards, which canned food like
tomatoes causes.

Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a synthetic estrogen found on the lining of the tin can. This causes reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. This also alters immune function.

Choose food in glass bottles (which do not need resin linings). However it is better to use organic, naturally grown products and cook them at home.

Strawberries make great part of your diet. But not all strawberries serve the same purpose.

 thechangepost/shutterstock

As per research, in 2008 and 2014 strawberries contained an average of 5.75 different pesticides per sample. These pesticides react in our bodies and causes toxicity which often end up in death of an individual.

That’s right! Grow your food. Take some responsibility and stop relying on over-the-shelf items. You never know their real ingredients, and you also don’t know how old they might be. Growing your veggies and having your chicken farm might be a luxury to some, but it has become a dire necessity. People are suffering from horrible diseases, diagnosed on a daily basis. If we eradicate the items mentioned above from our diets, believe me, not
only us but our future generations will be benefitting from it as well.

There won’t be any diseases, not from food at least. Just imagine how ironic this is; you’re getting sick because of what you’re needed to take on a daily basis for survival. Exactly! Use organic food and save yourselves!
