6 Foods You Should Avoid
It is a fact that 4 out of 10 leading causes of death in US are related to diet (hearth disease, diabetes, cancer and stroke). If you are looking to improve your health you should watch what you eat and start by trying to avoid the following 6 most unhealty foods:
1. Soda – should be named liquid candy. An average can of soda contains 10 teaspoons of sugar, 150 calories, 30 to 55 mg of caffeine, artificial food colors and sulphites.
2. Potato chips and French fries - contain acrylamide (a known carcinogen and neurotoxin), trans fats (artery-clogging fat), and increases the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer.
3. Doughnuts- refined sugar and flour, artificial flavors, trans fats. Health/nutritional value = the hole in the middle.
