3 Foods To Avoid If You Want To Live Long
It is not easy to avoid some food, all thanks to our addiction to them.
According to a recent report by KEBS, it showed that several brands of maize flour had high levels of aflatoxins. How insecure are we?
We have to eat anyway, food is important you know.
There are however several types of foods that we enjoy eating that expose us to lifestyle diseases.
We are supposed to be very keen on what we consume and the amounts we consume.
Here is a list of foods that you should avoid if you want to live a healthy life
1. Canned Tomato Paste
Canned tomato sauce is a hidden source of sugar and it can result in diabetes, obesity, tooth decay, and even heart disease.
It is always advisable that we make tomato sauce ourselves using fresh tomatoes.
Preferably, you can go for brands that contain less sugar and less sodium.
Carbonated drinks should just be a no go zone. Soda can mess up your skin, blood sugar levels, your hormones just to mention but a few.
I am aware of the adverts going rounds saying they contain vitamins and nutrients. That is untrue. Soda is just made of food dyes, sugar, and preservatives.
Sugar-free versions are no better. They are just made of some dangerous artificial sweeteners.
The best you can do to yourself is buy a blender and blend your natural juice at home.
Margarine is just one of the unhealthiest foods in your diet. It is just pure chemistry. Nothing natural in it.
It contains trans fats that can mess your cholesterol levels, blood vessels, and heart.
It is advisable that we replace margarine with butter.
