10 Foods You Should Avoid at All Costs

3. Fruit Juice

It’s all too easy to believe that fruit juice is a healthy drink option for children. Unfortunately, the sickening truth is that fruit juice is almost as unhealthy as other sugary drinks like pop and soda. Many parents have been cheated by the word “fruit” when the actual beverage you buy at the grocery store is not natural or healthy at all. They’re packed with artificial flavors, added sugar, and empty calories, yet manufacturers are never honest about what is in their products. They’re simply sugar-sweetened beverages that cause tooth decay, obesity, diabetes and add NO nutrients to the body. The Lancet has linked drinking too much fruit juice with an excess of calories to obesity and other issues.

  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
