The alarming numbers of unexplainable diseases such as cancer and viruses need an accurate analysis to our lifestyle, nutrition system, and surrounding environment. This article will reveal the truth of several foods found in the markets and even advertised as a healthy food.
The popcorn is a healthy snack with incredible benefits for your body, but the microwave popcorn bags are totally unhealthy. To mention a few, the bags are lined with a non-stick pots-like toxic material called “perfluorooctanoic acid” and the butter flavor in the popcorn is made of toxic diacetyl. Such materials can cause cancer or infertility whenever they are heated.
If you love the raw cashews and deal with them as healthy snacks, you should stop purchasing them and find healthy alternatives. The raw cashews include chemical urushiol that can cause unwanted changes in your skin or lead to death in rare cases.
Do you purchase the stick margarine as a healthier alternative to the grass fed cow butter? If so, you are making a mistake. The organic butter enjoys healthy saturated fats, great taste, and fat-soluble vitamins, while the stick margarine has artificial colors and flavors, salt, and trans-fat.
If you have children under 10, they should avoid having hot dogs, as they can cause asphyxiations or may get lodged in their throats. The mushroom has limitless health benefits and delicious taste in both of the cooked and uncooked food, but you should avoid the poisonous mushrooms, especially if you collect them yourself from the nearest forest or plant them at home.
The Japanese food is delicious and healthy, but some dishes need professionalism to be prepared or they will kill you. The puffer fish, for example, is eaten raw, yet it includes lethal poison tetrodotoxin inside its organs. Similarly, the cake and chips filler extracted from cassava root contain linamarin toxin; so, it can harm your interior organs, especially if you ate them raw.
In Namibia, the citizens eat the giant bullfrog during the national celebrations and enjoy its delicious taste. If you are there, you shouldn’t eat the young bullfrogs, as they can cause kidney failure. If you will travel to Jamaica, you should choose the ackee fruits that are ripe and picked before they reveal the black seeds inside, as they cause vomiting. In Egypt, you may eat fesikh- raw fish dried in the sun and preserved by salt- in a local spring day. Here, you should make sure that the fish was well preserved.
