Where Should Your Calories Come From?

The majority, if not all, of our calories should come from plants in the form of fruits, vegetables, nuts, sprouts, seeds, roots, herbs, spices, fungi, etc. There are more than 20,000 edible plants that contain every nutrient we need. If a nutrient is not available from the plant kingdom, the human body does not need it.

Top 30 Things To Improve Health

#3. Eliminate all processed foods from your diet. Whether you do so gradually at your own pace or go “cold turkey” and do it within a day or so is your decision. Getting the toxic food components and additives out of your system will yield health benefits very quickly.

#14. Apologize often. Almost every day of our lives we have an opportunity to express an apology to someone. It’s an act that shows strength of character and courage on our part and gives us a good reason to respect ourselves.

What are Processed Foods?

In a completely literal sense, processed food in its simplest form begins with food that you are chewing in your mouth. You are processing it, technically – by masticating it, you’re changing it from one form to another.

Next is a short list of some of the most dangerous processed foods that are now on the market:

  • Sodas: In addition to having no nutritional value and having an outrageous amount of sugar, they use high-fructose corn syrup, which is damaging to the liver. Many diet sodas contain carcinogenic sweeteners that perpetuate cravings for real sugar as well.
  • White bread: Contains a great deal of processed sugar for added flavor, is stripped of all nutritional value, and uses chemicals such as benzoyl peroxide that can cause headaches, nausea, and DNA damage.
  • Hot Dogs and Processed Meats: These have sodium nitrate and other dangerous compounds in them and are linked to stomach and bowel cancers as well as high blood pressure and heart disease.
  • Cookies and Cakes: Most of these products can contain up to 80 ingredients, most of which are harmful additives such as preservatives and artificial coloring. Most also contain partially hydrogenated oils with trans fats, which are associated with diabetes, coronary heart disease, and Alzheimer’s.
  • Quick Noodle Soups: One package can contain up to 2,000 milligrams of sodium, greatly exceeding the American Heart Association’s recommended daily limit of 1,500 milligrams per day. This puts frequent users at risk of high blood pressure or a stroke
  • Microwave Popcorn: One serving can contain 270 milligrams of sodium and 8 grams of fat; the American Heart Association recommends a maximum of 11 to 13 grams of saturated fat per day. The microwaveable bags contain chemicals such as perfluoroalkyls, linked to poor semen quality and impaired kidney function.
  • Frozen Dinners: They have outrageously high contents of sugar, fat, and sodium, which can raise blood pressure and lead to heart and weight problems. The most popular of these products contain between 1,100 to 1,300 milligrams of sodium.
  • Fast Food Iced Tea: It contains propylene glycol alginate, which is also used in de-icer and antifreeze automotive products. It can cause neurotoxic and cardiovascular problems.
  • Candy: Besides excess processed sugar, candy contains many very toxic and carcinogenic chemicals used for artificial coloring and other purposes; they include Yellow Number 5 and Yellow Number 6, linked to Attention Deficit Disorder in children.
  • Sugary Cereal: In addition to incredibly high sugar content, it contains chemicals such as butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) and that are believed to be carcinogenic. (Those ingredients are banned in many European countries.)
  • Energy Drinks: They contain excessive amounts of sucrose, glucose, and caffeine, as well as toxic artificial sweeteners. One study found that they are more corrosive to teeth than sodas.
  • Ice Cream: Most varieties contain artificial coloring, soybean oil, and titanium dioxide (a chemical used in sunblock), as well as a tremendous amount of sugar.
  • Breakfast Biscuits: These are very high in trans fats that can cause heart disease. Some products that are labeled as having 0 grams of trans fats contain hydrogenated soybean oil, meaning that traces of fat actually are in the products.
  • Macaroni and Cheese: It contains Yellow Number 5 and Yellow Number 6 and coal tar (which is used to seal floors and kill bugs in shampoo). Those additives can cause ADHD and allergies, and they are suspected to be linked to cancer as well.
  • Margarine: Although it’s considered by some to be a better choice than butter, it contains trans fats that lowers good cholesterol levels and is linked to heart disease. It is high in omega-6 fatty acids that cause a chemical imbalance between omega-3 and omega-6 acids, potentially causing bodily inflammation. Dangerous chemicals are used in its production as well.
  • Bacon: This is probably the worst of the processed meats available. It tastes delicious primarily because it’s extremely high in saturated fats (that cause obesity and heart disease). The preservatives that are used, including nitrates, are considered to be carcinogenic. 
  • Instant Ramen: Although it’s a popular product among those on tight budgets, it’s incredibly unhealthy and has almost no nutritional value. A typical portion of it has about 1,500 milligrams of sodium and 14 grams of fat, and it also contains additives such as MSG (monosodium glutamate).
  • Coffee Creamer: It’s loaded with trans fats and the chemical whitening product called titanium dioxide, which may cause liver and tissue damage. The trans fats in the hydrogenated oil used can cause diminished memory in adults.
  • Baked Goods: These use potassium bromide, also known as bromated flour, to speed up cooking processes. It’s found in wraps, bagel chips, and commercial bread crumbs. The dangerous chemical used is believed to cause cell deterioration and kidney failure and has been banned in Canada and Europe.
  • Jam and Jelly: Besides being loaded with sugar, they contain high quantities of pectin. Pectin is toxic because it attaches to good, healthy antioxidants including lycopene, beta-carotene and others, causing them to be eliminated from your system before they can provide health benefits to your body.
  • Chewing Gum: Although it’s not a food as such, It contains butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) which is released into your body when you chew the product. BHA has been linked to impairment of blood clotting and to tumor growth as well. BHA has been banned from use in food products in many European countries and Japan.
