10 Foods You Should Avoid at All Costs

To be honest, dietary rules really suck. Almost every food expert will tell you that we need to skip fast food, but they still remain very popular. Nutritionists tell us to avoid snack foods like nuts and chips, but reliable studies show that an average person eats any of these snacks seven times a week! Despite their deliciousness, we all know that these are some of the foods that not only contribute to the obesity crisis but can also mess with your health big time.

Snack food and fast food will ultimately mess with your body due to excessive amounts of sugar, salt, fat, and chemical additives. They contain ingredients that could potentially cause various health issues not limited to cancer, heart disease, and obesity. Despite the fact that food rules like these can be tough to follow, it’s important to try out best and steer clear of these ten awful foods that send shivers down the spines of professional dietitians and health experts.

1. Microwave Popcorn

Microwave popcorn may be delicious and easy to make, but they’re terribly harmful to your health. Well, popcorn might have a hypnotizing smell that fills the office or the house, but that delicious scent comes from a chemical known as diacetyl—a harmful synthetic butter flavoring. According to research conducted by the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, inhaling this butter flavoring can cause lung disease because it produces toxic chemicals when heated at high temperatures. If you want popcorn, cut out the cheap, salty, and toxic microwave bags and make your own popcorn on the stove.

  1. Good info here, Mark!!
    However, you made a mistake on #4: You wrote, “Vegetable oil contains unsaturated fats and Omega 3 fatty acids, which are linked to heart attacks” You must have meant to write Omega 6, not omega 3. By the way, it’s not just having omega 6, but rather having too much of it. Some omega 6 is necessary for normal physiological function, but we typically get way too much of it and not enough of the Omega 3’s.

    I’d also add to this list with
    -diet sodas
    -gluten free junk foods and other “health halo” foods
    -microwavable ramen noodle packs
