We all know that some foods are bad for us, but the thing we don’t know is just how bad they are. Why shouldn’t we indulge in these guilty pleasures when they taste so delicious?
Part of the answer lies in the question. Unhealthy foods are intentionally made to look and taste a certain way so people would buy them. Although you should probably avoid all the foods on our list, treating yourself to an occasional slice of pizza won’t kill you. Moderation is the key, but some foods can hurt our bodies in more ways than one and experts advise us not to eat them.
Here’s our list of 21 worst foods you can eat:
The famous baloney sandwich actually contains so many harmful ingredients that even one slice of it is bad for our health. Nutritionists say this is one of the foods we should completely avoid.
Baloney can be made from several different types of meat: chicken, turkey, beef, pork, venison or soy protein. That’s great, right? Wrong! Food manufacturers use the “worst” parts of animals in order to cut costs; not to mention the fact that the animals are often mistreated and fed hormones and other chemical concoctions in order to provide the manufacturers with the largest amount of usable parts. You end up eating bones, tails and nails mixed with chemicals to provide the proper color and taste. Mmmmm, yummy.
Another problem is the amount of sodium, with one slice of baloney containing 300 mg of it. The recommended daily intake of sodium should not exceed 2300 mg and with older people that number drops to 1500 mg.
And take a second to think about the proverb ‘You are what you eat’. Do you really feel like a set of chicken nails, eyes, feathers and who knows what else?
Respect your body, it’s your temple, after all.
