Top 10 Most HARMFUL Foods People Should STOP Eating

The fastest thing about fast food is the deterioration of your health. It is full of at least two of the three white devils, not to mention highly processed meat, sodium and of course saturated fats. This is a deadly combination and one that will reduce your life expectancy.
Remember the documentary Super Size Me? Eating fast food every day for every meal is an extreme case, but, in less than a month, the researcher’s health deteriorated so rapidly that his doctors were seriously concerned for his well-being.According to the American Institute for Cancer Research, consumption of these meats is related to an increased risk of colon cancer. Nitrates are converted into nitrites once digested, which can form nitrosamine, a powerful cancer-causing chemical.Doughnuts contain some of the unhealthiest ingredients around: white sugar, white flour and trans-fat. This is a lethal combination, not just for your waistline, but also for your heart health. Consumption of trans-fat and sugar has been linked with a significantly higher risk of heart disease and diabetes.Dale Hattis, a research professor at Clark University in Massachusetts, estimates that “acrylamide causes several thousand cancers per year in America”. Not only are crisps high in fat, but they also are often coated with salt, making them extremely high in sodium. This raises blood pressure and cholesterol and, ultimately, increases your risk of heart attack and stroke.

A study published in Cancer Science in 2005 linked a high-salt diet with increased gastric cancer.A study published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention stated that drinking just two sodas per week can nearly double a person’s risk of pancreatic cancer.
Dr Joseph Mercola, an American doctor and a New York Times bestselling author, says there are “10 teaspoons of sugar” in just one can of soda and “30 to 55 mg of caffeine, artificial food colours and sulphites”.
Soda also creates acid in the body, which ultimately weakens bones and depletes vital mineral stores. Studies have shown strong associations between diet soda and obesity as well as diabetes.
