In the previous part of this post, we discussed the three most marketed healthy foods to get off your diet ASAP, which are fruit juices, soy protein & sugar alcohols. In these three foods, the common variable is the mischief of cunning marketers who sell their products using the wrong keywords.
These foods, you may not know, are responsible for most diseases we suffer from. While there are hardly dieters free from this error, you can start eating healthier now. Let’s look at more of these foods below.
3 Other Healthy Foods To Get Off Your Diet ASAP
Farmed Salmon & Other Fishes Like That
Farmed salmon, commonly called “Atlantic salmon” to confuse you, is another food never to eat. Farmed tilapia is nothing better — in fact, it is more harmful than bacon in a few ways.
Atlantic salmon has, over the years, had a decreasing level of health benefits to offer. In 2016, a study found that farmed salmon had lost 50% of the nutritional value, which they had five years earlier. This was linked to the lower level of ground anchovies in the feed fed to these salmon. Another study conducted at the University of New York established that farmed salmon had 11 times better dioxin levels than wild-caught salmon. It may interest you that several studies have associated dioxin with immune system failure, organ damage & cancer.
Dozens of other credible research prove the dangers of farm-fed salmon & tilapia. Better options include wild-caught salmon, Atlantic mackerel & Pacific sardines.
Microwave popcorns are popularly considered healthy, but that’s a costly misconception. Many can’t do away with this food due to the convenience and excellent taste, but that’s never been a measure of healthiness. This snack is not just worth eating, as it is made from many debatable ingredients, but that’s by the way. The chief issue is that perfluorochemicals like perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) & perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) are applied on these tiny snacks. This may not mean a lot at first, but it will surely do when you know that these chemicals are linked to specific cancers.
Also, diacetyl (the compound that gives a taste of fake butter) is associated with severe lung complications when regularly eaten.
An advisable alternative is simply making your popcorn using organic kernels, coconut oil or organic butter, cayenne pepper, nutritional yeast & garlic powder.
That we are what we eat is an undeniable truth, so if the livestock you’re roasting for dinner was reared on drugs, hormones & artificial diets including fertilizers, you’re not safe either.
A 2012 research found that feeding chickens arsenic has led to higher toxicity in humans, yet over 30 million pounds of such prescriptions are used in animal farms every year. That’s frightening, realizing the harmful effects of these antibiotics on our health.
A better substitute is to buy your meat from an organic store, preferably a local one. Big companies hardly keep to healthy practices. If you have the capability, you should rear some livestock too. Chickens are great to start with.
Like I already said, there are dozens of so-tagged healthy foods to get off your diets ASAP. Doing so will greatly benefit you, as these foods damage the body in more ways than you think. Eat well today, stop enriching greedy marketers at the expense of your health.
