This is only the top of the list of toxic food products which, in the opinion of foreign and domestic nutritionist, should be avoided.
- The greatest enemy of health is processed foods with lots of additives, and still do not know which the long term effects of consuming these foods are – believes Rachel Harvest, a nutritionist from New York.
In the diet hot dogs, sausages and salami are equally undesirable, because the processed meat contains a lot of fat, and may contain up to 400 percent more salt and 50 percent more preservatives than just red meat; in order to disguise the salinity in these products dextrose is added.
- Many don’t know that bologna and salami special are not the same. Deli may contain only the proteins of the meat until a specific sausage may contain soy, gluten and skins. The same is the case with the Tyrolean Alps and sausage. Tyrol contains only the proteins of meat, and alpine proteins of other origin – says a technologist in a food company.
He explains that the pizza and ham products are of poor quality, because it refers to them by the worst types of meat, which is hydrogenated, and then shredded so the huge percentage of water is not visible.
Harvest says that industrially processed food has no nutritional value.
- It has too much salt and sugar, artificial colors, which the body cannot process. Processing over which are added various flavorings used in the meat and dairy industry. You have the margarine with the taste of butter, low fat cheese from processed vegetable oils. All this is unhealthy, burden the liver and kidneys, clog arteries and increase the risk of heart attack and stroke.
What you should avoid:
To make the pate, they use the cheapest and worst meat categories which include skins, bones, hooves, cartilage… More than half of the pate is of water, fat, skins, offal, starch, salt, spices, emulsifiers and other chemicals, while meat in certain types of pate is barely 30 percent. The pate has large amount of salt. Especially, the pate should be avoided in the intestine, because they are still lower quality than those in cans.
Margarine is made from vegetable oils, which are extracted from sunflower with the help of chemicals. The high temperature in the process of converting oil destroys all the vitamins and antioxidants which include leads to the formation of free radicals that can cause serious damage to the cells and increase the risk of cancer. These oils are very start rancid and unhealthy, and adding new chemicals are converted into solid state, causing trans-fatty acids, which have been proved to be very harmful for health.
This cheese is made from pure cheese, but from what remains in the process of cheese production. In it, in fact, is only 50 percent of the cheese, and the rest are whey proteins, water, fat, emulsifiers and artificial color to the final product was as true as possible taste. This cheese has twice more salt than in the ordinary, while it has more fat than any other dairy product. Melting processes kill all the probiotic and other bacteria that have a positive effect on our body.
On the list are especially the unhealthy food and popcorn for the microwave, because they contain chemicals which have been shown that can increase the risk of cancer, affect fertility and interfere with kidney function. Many microwave popcorn contain artificial flavors and trans fatty acids, and other chemicals that can cause headaches and nausea. Recommended by nutritionists is that fans of popcorn make this snack in the traditional way – in a saucepan on the stove.
All offal, skin, nails, hooves, intestines, blood vessels, cartilage, fat, bones, ligaments, and the worst quality meat grinding the mixture to be unrecognizable. Then add vegetables, soybeans, spices, starches, water, a lot of salt, the preservative sodium nitrate as the product would be lengthy, then potassium and calcium triphosphates, polyphosphates, sodium ascorbate and carmine – color found in lipsticks and paprika extract. And that’s hot dogs.
What is in them?
It is a seasoning and preservative that is widely used in meat products such as bacon, sausage and ham. Experts link it to increased risk of cancer, and there are studies that can cause heart problems.
This additive is among the most damaging. Products in liquid form ensures the homogeneity and density of the corresponding level, while the cured meat products are placed to bind as much water to be heavier. Potential is the challenger colon cancer.
Polyphosphates are commonplace in local cured meat products, and manufacturers don’t seem to mind that his excessive ingestion can cause gene mutations.
Its role is the better taste of the finished products, which is why it is called “delicious poison”. Today it is almost impossible to find a finished product that it does not contain. Disruptive work of the hormones produces hyperactivity in children, leading to chronic fatigue, sudden changes in blood pressure, headaches.
Trans fatty acids
These are artificial fats that are added to processed food in order to prolong shelf life. Trans fatty acids increase harmful LDL cholesterol and reduce good HDL, increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, and harm the arteries.
