21 Worst Foods You Can Eat


9. Bacon

Bacon has a large amount of sodium, and the consumption of a large amount of sodium can put you at risk for heart disease and high blood pressure.

Four pieces of bacon can contain up to 800 mg of sodium which is truly a staggering figure.

A study conducted by researchers at the University of Zurich found a connection between eating processed meat and the risk of dying from heart disease or cancer.

Diabetes is also around the corner, but more importantly obesity is right in front of us.

Obesity not only affects our physical appearance but it also prevents the body from functioning normally and can cause all sorts of health problems.

A second study by researchers at Columbia University found that the consumption of cured meats such as bacon increases a person’s chances of developing chronic pulmonary disease.

It is important to know that only one ounce of bacon contains 30 mg of cholesterol – this can lead to a higher risk of developing heart disease and stroke!

People who eat a lot of processed meat are also linked to premature death due to cardiovascular diseases or cancer.

More bad news arrive from the Harvard School of Public Health: researchers say that eating bacon could be linked to a lower sperm count.  In addition, nutritionist say that factory-farmed pigs are more likely to get sick than the free-range ones.  This means that you are more likely to get sick by eating bacon!

Not to be too harsh on bacon – at least one study suggest that bacon could help cure hangovers.  That’s something, right?

    So food is bad? That’s what this is pretty much saying. Anything in excess is not going to be good for you, but what it doesn’t mention is alternatives or other things that aren’t bad. You can just look at ingredients on anything and know what you’re getting, but don’t pick the worst thing of one thing. Yes, don’t eat doughnuts everyday, but the key is MODERATION and BALANCE.

No mention of gmo, sometimes this shit seems like this seems like borderline fear mongering as if we should live off some bio – molecular vanilla paste. The real topper is pigs not having sweat glands so all the meat is toxic….. I’d say it’s cause they live in high density squalor. Facts in this article are shite at best…

    Wow, people are so hurt by the truth.. The truth that in this country, people consume these foods on a daily basis, if not one, than the other- hot dogs, burgers, pizza, bagels, frozen dinners..it is modern day american food supply, and why we are the most obese country in the world.. make dinners at home using fresh ingredients, its cheaper than going to fast food daily. Open your eyes and realize that this is not how the rest of the world eats.. We’re being fed garbage because we dont ask these important questions until its too late. Noq trans fats are banned, because in retrospect we can see how harmful they were… but corn syrup,food coloring, and preservatives are all just as harmful.. Are our taste buds and pride greater than our common sense and dignity? I think not..

    I get the distinct impression that this article is based more on rumor, opinion and other questionably sourced websites and publications than it is on solid research and established fact. Some of the statements are patently false – like when it says margarine is tops on the list of foods for low-fat diets. On what planet? Nobody thinks margarine is a low-fat food. It is not a suggested food on any low-fat diet.

  28. spunkysmum

    September 26, 2014 at 10:39 PM

    Does health-nut rhetoric trump facts and truth? I think not. Nobody is arguing that eating fresh food is not a good idea. There should be enough solid facts from reliable sources to prove that it is, so that nobody needs to bend the truth to make the case for it. No matter how right you think your cause is, it is not justifiable to use misinformation and make claims that you can’t support with solid evidence to further that cause. All we ask is that if you are going to make a claim as though you are stating a fact, you should be prepared to credibly back it up. if you’re not willing or able to do so, do not expect your two cents to be taken seriously.

    I have been eating organic for over a year and no longer eat beef or pork. People can laugh or dismiss what these articles say, but it is true. Our food supply is disgusting and the FDA is pathetic. They allow anything in our food if it fattens their pockets from Monsanto and the big companies that make the processed crap for us to buy and eat. It is up to you what you put in your body and knowledge is everything, the more you know about what goes into your food the better off you will be. How does it make sense to anyone that farmers spray our our food with pesticides and we eat it…how is that healthy. That is the reason we have so much childhood cancer…it is everywhere and everyone knows someone that is dying from it, that’s what our government is doing to us. They are now passing a bill for 2-4-D to be sprayed on crops now which is in agent orange because the pesticides they are using now are not working any longer…so hey let’s just use something stronger so we can have even more cancer…the pharmeceutical companies are loving it! People need to wise up! Contact your local representatives and raise hell if you have to. It has to change… for the sake of our kids and their future!

    Yes they are! Everyone I know eats all these listed foods almost every day of their lives. It’s the American diet. Look at the crowds at fast food joints at meal times. Look where high school students head after class. If it’s not hamburgers, fries, pizza, hot dogs or all the various frozen snacks available – it’s considered not food. My grandsons never eat vegetables. Never! They live on carbs. If you try to stay on healthy food only, you will be considered a weirdo. This is how America eats and it is sad.

    Real Cream/Whipped or otherwise is actually a healthy fat – Cool Whip is an artificial mock cream. You don’t need to add anything to real cream – sugar is not necessary unless you want to make it an unhealthy choice like Cool Whip. Like all fats – real/pure cream must be eaten in moderation. But it is not unhealthy like Cool Whip at all.

  66. Pahtrisha

    October 29, 2014 at 11:51 PM

    and on the whipped cream, the writer uses the term “toxic” in relating the ingredients. That is a HUGE overstep of the definition of the word toxic. Again, the anonymous “writer” is just using scare tactics; calling these ingredients toxic (hydrogenated vegetable oil, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, skim milk, light cream and less than 2% sodium caseinate, natural and artificial flavor, xanthan and guar gums, polysorbate 60, sorbitan monostearate) is very, VERY close to being a LIE. In fact, informally, that is exactly what I’d call it. A LIE.

    I’m 68 years old and have enjoyed everyone of these foods. I still enjoy a good hot dog with all the trimmings on a white hot dog bun. A charcoal grilled hamburger with cheese, onions, lettuce and tomatoes and lots of mayo, fries on the side along with a couple of cold brews completes a fine summer day.. When I get my Pumpkin pie served up after a great Thanksgiving meal, it darn well better have a healthy dose of whipped cream on top of it. And I don’t much care if is Cool Whip or the wife made it from scratch. I never cared much for jelly beans but if I sit down at an event and there happens to be a bowl of them on the table, I will probably pop a handful of them. Instant noodles I always thought were pretty stupid but on a camping trip they sure are easy to carry and after a 10 mile hike they taste pretty good too. Bagels and Cream Cheese, when I was working, occasionally I would to stop by the store and pick up a couple dozen bagels and some cream cheese to keep the troops happy during the morning.

    What I’m saying is that, in moderation, not one of these items is going to hurt you. Not a single one and I’d say that most households have these items in the refrigerator right now. However this article tries to make it sound like these foods are purely toxic and if you should ever allow one to enter your system there is good chance that you will die from it. Hogwash!

    >Penicillin is a compound invented by man in a laboratory.

    While manufactured today, penicillin was discovered as a component of bread mold, where it occurs naturally. But otherwise you have a great point. I have family members who freak out about “chemicals” in foods and how many ingredients there are in modern foods. I have to remind them that we’re all chemicals.

    Organic doesn’t impart to you any more nutrients. Worse, cows pee on your food (seriously). Outbreaks of salmonella are actually several times MORE likely with organic produce for this reason. The “organic” label can’t apply to normally produced fertilizer/nitrogen which is *extracted from the air*, so to do “organic” certified farming you have to truck in manure from much greater distances which adds more pollution to the atmosphere. Organic farming also produces half the food per acre as modern farming. As has been stated by others, I’m sure a lot of folks in countries with high rates of famine are real proud of your intentionally diminished crop output. Big business love it because they can charge you twice as much for the same product, too.

    In short, organic food is no better for you and in some ways more dangerous, it raises pollution levels and erases all the gains of modern agriculture as the population of earth continues to rise and feeding those extra people becomes even more of a challenge. And of course with the higher prices only the rich hipsters can afford it. In the end, there’s no benefit and it’s a terrible idea that only appeals to pseudoscientific hipsters. If I was going to contact my legislator it would be to insist that it be illegal for anything to pee on my food.

  82. jgmitzen

    November 14, 2014 at 11:29 PM

    Please don’t think that people in businesses or politics sit around dreaming up how to kill you either, which is the mindset of a lot of comments here.

    There’s simply no point to “listen” to things that are made up and removing things from one’s diet for no scientific reason. So, no.

    November 14, 2014 at 11:33 PM

    What world do you live in? You sure as heck are born with a taste for junk food. Back in our past, every calorie counted – you never knew when a bear was going to chase you. So we evolved a natural attraction to sweet-tasting foods.Sugar can be metabolized quickly for a burst of energy – in fact honey begins breaking down while still in our mouths! Hence it was good to eat something sweet. Nowadays when we’re not (often) being chased by predators our inclination for sweets is a problem. But to say that we’re not naturally attracted to fats and sugar is beyond ridiculous.

    Food was never intended to be produced using industrialized methods. God intended for us all to be small farmers and gardeners. In our increasingly specialized lives, a smaller and smaller number of us can do that, so, a very few of us must use increasingly industrialized, labor saving methods to meet demand. Inevitably, this decreases the quality of our food. A really good author on this subject is Wendell Berry.

    “Mayonnaise is a Spanish sauce containing stable emulsion of oil, egg yolks and either vinegar or lemon juice, with many options for embellishment with other herbs and spices.”

    No, it is not.
    Mayonnaise is said to be the invention of the French chef of the Duke deRichelieu in 1756. While the Duke was defeating the British at Port Mahon, his chef was creating a victory feast that included a sauce made of cream and eggs.

    Abso . . .ing . . . lutely hilarious. One assumes the author is either a vegan hermit or very unhappy. And the photo of a hamburger is not a hamburger but rather a travesty. A properly made good burger made with good beef does not need all the nonsense added. Perhaps a drape of caramelized onion and a very small bit of ketchup. Anything else is less gilding the lily than ruining a burger

    Bad information contaminates the entire article – even if the rest is true.

    I actually agree with this list, mostly. Only thing I disagree with is the cheese, because I each cheese made from pasture raised cows it’s called Kerrygold and it’s the only cheese I eat. Everything else on the list I pretty much avoid 95 percent of the time and have been way ahead of the game before it was popular to avoid these.

    So, basically, don’t eat anything. If you continue to eat, eventually, you will die. The same result that not eating provides, however since a great deal of money is spent to discover this fact, it becomes a matter of exactly how soon, or how late in life, one can expect to cross the great divide. Not eating anything, I’m sure, will introduce you to the grave quicker than enjoying a good unhealthy greasy meal. Even if it is full of chemicals. And, since there is no shortage of people on the planet, and the prospect of starving to death is a stark contrast to dying fat and jolly. It would best serve mankind to eat anything that you want, and just hope for the best. After all, the more people that die, the more of everything will be left for the living.

    Not right away, but… There have been many studies on what happens to your arteries when you eat fatty, salty foods. The danger is inflammation which grows to blockages. The arteries of people who eat mostly a plant-based diet are smooth and intact. The arteries of the others are roughed up and they are on the way to heart surgery. No, you won’t die immediately for eating fried chicken, gravy and biscuits. But it adds to the build-up in arteries you can’t see or feel.

    Whether God intended it or not, it would be the healthiest way to live. However, having tried being an organic gardener, it is not as easy as it sounds. There are a lot of critters out there ready to drill into and eat your produce. I guess if you had the time to stand in your garden and pick insects off crops 24/7 you’d be successful. About half what I raised had to be recycled back into the ground from worms, beetles, slugs, snails, earwigs, ants and various other bugs. Who wants to eat a tomato that has been half chewed up by worms? I have tried hot pepper and all the “natural” pesticides. I’ve given up and will just pay more at the store.

    Bacon is one of the worst things you can put in your body. It is full of nitrites just like hot dogs, besides the fat content. People are eating more and more bacon, mostly because they are adding it to every fast food sandwich like mad. Don’t eat bacon.

  113. patcee14

    November 26, 2014 at 2:36 PM

    Read your labels. Propylene glycol is in a lot of foods and is toxic to pets – who eat it in almost all the treats sold. Never eat anything from China that lists propylene glycol. It can damage the liver. I never eat ramen, but this chemical is usually in foods that are meant to be moist and pliable.

  114. patcee14

    November 26, 2014 at 2:38 PM

    That’s one way of looking at it. I see-saw between thinking I’m old and something is going to get me anyway, to eating healthy because I don’t want to end up sick from a stroke, etc. It makes sense that if you are old you should eat whatever you want as long as you can, but it also makes sense to try to stay healthy as long as you can.

  115. patcee14

    November 26, 2014 at 2:40 PM

    It’s not from germs from undercooked bacon! It is the way they cure it and what it contains. Heat does nothing to change bacon into a healthy food.

  116. patcee14

    November 26, 2014 at 2:43 PM

    There is no such thing as moderation in the American diet. Most people just pick the fast food joint they are going to eat that day – and go somewhere else the next. Eating in restaurants or fast food joints is unhealthy, no matter what you think. You have no idea how much salt is in those foods or what ingredients they use to cook it. Most use the cheapest fat possible. And most Mexican restaurants use lard – rendered pig fat.

    I eat about 4 bagels a year and maybe 8-10 pieces of bacon a year. But, burgers, pizza, cheese, fries and, while not exactly on the list, I also eat Cliff Bars. I do not touch anything else on the list

  121. jason

    December 1, 2014 at 3:35 PM

    Sadly eating fresh food at home is a hell of a lot more expensive than getting fast food, that’s why there’s a lot of people that go there. They can’t afford it! Just stay away form high fructose corn syrup, trans fat and preservatives. Drink plenty of water according to your body weight and sustain a certain calorie maintenance level to stay in shape. If you want to lose, then cut the calories even smaller and stick to good carbs such as vegetables and fruit (even brown rice is great), proteins such as beef,turkey,fish,etc and fats (yes fats! They are very important!) such as olive oil but keep in moderation (should be 20-30% of your calorie budget). Stay away form corn for its high sugar and soy. Glucose is ideal for losing weight and quickens it but if you must then have 100% whole wheat (100%!). No added sugars or artificial sweeteners. To sum it up, eat like it came form planet earth ;)

    I agree with you on that one. when they prosess that food how do you know how clean it was done. when they cooked that burger how clean was the grill? did they wash their hands after going to the restroom? Bet you anything most of the illnesses come from the prossessing &handling of the food.

    –They have some of it right, particularly about sugar, but they are old-fashioned about salt & fats.
    –UNLESS YOU ARE SALT-SENSITIVE, if you do not eat carbs and drink a lot of water, the body flushes away most of the salt.
    –On fats, there is some recent research (OK, financed by the Atkins & protein people) that disconnects dietary cholesterol from the cholesterol that puts the fat on the inside of your arteries. Several people I know, including myself, for various reasons stopped eating sugars & carbs (not easy), and vastly increased their intake of DIETARY cholesterol–eggs, cheese, etc. The reductions in BLOOD cholesterol levels were dramatic.
    –It appears to be the combination of fat AND sugar, that raises your cholesterol numbers.

  142. John P. Fenner

    –About 30 years ago, doctors found fat on the inside of our arteries, in autopsies. They concluded, reasonably but wrongly, that eating fat was bad for you.
    –So the food industry eliminated fats from their processed foods. Result: no one wanted to eat them. Sooo, they replaced fats with sugar (“low in calories”, “lite”).
    –Result of that, we are much fatter as a nation, than we were 30 years ago.

    all this bad foods bull shit seems to be vegan propaganda, truth in labeling requires all ingredients be published on the labels and simply reading provides the knowledge of what is safe and as for pork trichinosis was basically eradicated from pork packaging industry years ago and range fatted cattle compared to commercial feed lot cattle has healthier and safer beef,and milk cows are not butchered for beef

    I have been a vegetarian for 15 years and I rarely get sick. I have survived on just salads, basically a raw vegan diet for over a year with no repercussions. I became one in the first place because I got sick on meat and couldn’t eat for nearly two weeks, one small meal on Christmas that was it. I worked at a Butterball plant for several months back in the 90’s, I wouldn’t eat turkey. They don’t throw diseased birds off, they just cut the cancer out and send the rest of the bird on. This happens in every meat processing plant. I would throw off pieces of meat that had tumors and other stuff on it, I was the only one who would do it because I was the only one who could speak english. The meat processing plants hired a lot of illegal immigrants so they can get by with not following regulations, the employees are not going to complain if they are not legal.

    Sorry , shellac is not bug poop. Though it is still made from bugs, it is the resin that they secrete into their cocoon. Shellac is also used in pharmaceutical pill making, and is excellent for time release capsules. The human body can’t digest shellac, and it is harmlessly passed through our digestive system.
