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.

    So eating is bad, sodium equals death. Pretty much everything in our modern day food supply is tainted. 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..

    Penicillin is a compound invented by man in a laboratory. Sulfa drugs were invented by man in a laboratory. Stupidity was not invented by man in a laboratory. and remember, aflatoxin A, aflatoxin B, and botulinus toxin are 100% produced by nature.

    And who was the guy that was hungry enough to figure out how to eat an artichoke?

    It’s odd but, if I consume MSG at lunch today, I have no reaction. However; When I eat lunch tomorrow, it will almost immediately trigger a migraine.

  • James

    Except we’re not the most obese country in the world. Whether it’s good or bad for your health, people should be able to eat whatever the hell they want, though it’s important to know the risk; much like enjoying cigarettes.

    I am an agriculture instructor and there are so many false statements in this article. I’m assuming the person who wrote this has never even seen a cow. It is good to get your facts from someone in the field other then from someone who sits at home all day reading wiki.

  • luckycharms

    What the article is basically saying is that we should be cooking our food ourselves and not buying prepackaged foods. Rice, chicken, potatoes, turkey, occasional red meat and fruits and veggies. Please dont think a corporation has your best interest at heart or the government.

    “According to the American Institute of Baking (yes, such an institution
    exists and they’re quite professional) the sales reached US$626.9
    million fresh bagel US supermarket sales (excluding Wal-Mart) in just 52
    weeks.”

    Much more professional than you, journalism school flunk-out. WTF does this mean? Fifty-two weeks from when to when? Why was Wal-Mart excluded from this meaningless statistic?

    Along with the Cool Whip = whipped cream gaffe and a half dozen others, who let this half-baked macaroon attempt to write an article on something waaaay beyond their comprehension?

    There are not too many parts of an animal that aren’t edible. Listen up Paleo dieters. The cavemen didn’t list by-products on the mammoth. Lame argument from the Food Nazis. I’ll give them the win on chemicals and preservatives, but if the guts and gills are chewable? They’re edible. I’d love to stay and chat, but my baloney sandwich on white bread (extra gluten) and mayo with bacon is waiting.

    my neighbor’s kid eats NO veggies except french fries that he covers in ketchup — he will go through a 24 oz bottle in one day — he has titties bigger than mine and is bullied at school for his titties – his mother tries to make him eat veggies but he refuses except for corn — oh and baked beans which I say have too much sugar in the bbq sauce — oh well he’ll be kicking the bucket before his alcholic father has to send him to college — the kid lives during the week with his mother and eats lunch at school – school lunches bake the ‘fries’

  • catbell7cat

    I pick up those vegan hot dogs — and they are great — no one would be able to tell by the taste that’s for sure — especially on the grill

  • lukebc

    I eat ALL of the stuff…… probably once every few weeks, if not months. Thus said, I eat whatever I want whenever I choose. I also run (NOT “jog”), cycle (serious cycling like up and down MOUNTAINS) and I swim about twice a week (1 mile). Did I mention I eat whatever I want? My cholesterol levels are at what the physicians dream of. My blood pressure is low. My pulse sits around 72 or so. I’m in my early 50s. Did I mention I eat whatever I want?

  • Donna Brelinski

    omg………..ramen noodles? what are college students going to eat? That’s our future, dammit!!!

    ok they say ramen noodles cause obesity my ass ive lost 40 lbs eating pizza and ramen noodles since may 2nd and im health no high blood pressure nothing.

  • Sandra

    You are also not suppose to eat shell fish. Tuna has a lot of mercury in it, why are they not mentioning that? Most of these people who write these types of stories are vegetarians…. Eat fruit, vegetables, grains, nuts, etc. all the time…Sorry, couldn’t stomach it constantly.

  • Jozef

    Oh, I love vegan ice cubes, PETA approved

  • spunkysmum

    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.

  • spunkysmum

    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.

  • CeeBee

    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!

  • Keevin Prince

    As the old saying goes/ “If it taste good or feel good then don’t eat it or do it.” Just remember this fact that no matter what you eat, your going to die anyway so enjoy life to the fullest.

  • freshstart222

    So we can’t eat anything including salads.

  • freshstart222

    So go ahead and eat all the whipped cream you want — heavy cream and sugar.

  • freshstart222

    Grilling food causes cancer!

  • freshstart222

    Sounds good.

  • Olga Kim

    And you go ahead and eat all the Cool Whip you want–oil, chemicals and everything artificial. Bon appetit, TROLL!

  • Olga Kim

    And you go ahead and eat all the Cool Whip made with 100 ingredients, all made by scientists in lab coats. Whipped cream is all natural, made with just two ingredients, heavy cream and sugar, made by home cooks and chefs. Bon appetit, troll master.

    You are going to die no matter how healthy you try or do eat .. I say eat what you want but everything in moderation … I must admit everything on this list taste so good .. When they going to come up with healthy stuff that taste as well then we wont eat all the bad stuff ..

  • patcee14

    Not much left to eat, guys. Might as well become vegetarians.

  • patcee14

    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.

  • patcee14

    I didn’t see salads listed. It’s the dressings that are bad.

  • patcee14

    My grandkids slop blue cheese or ranch dressing on pizza till you can hardly tell it’s pizza. Talk about bad food, but they’ve done it for years with their parents’ okay.

  • patcee14

    Learned behavior. You’re not born with a taste for junk food.

  • patcee14

    Keep on living in denial, people. Anything processed to death by industry is unhealthy.

  • patcee14

    And you are eating twice as much sodium as you should. That can cause inflammation in your arteries, leading to blockages. While you are enjoying that top ramen, think about how much fun triple bypasses are. Long term consumption of a lot of salt is never good. Look it up. Just google salt consumption.

  • TheOct8pus

    Did you even read my comment?

  • Miauen Miau

    hahaah these comments are the reason why the world is OBESE. :( Would it really be that hard for you to listen and just try and remove these from your diet?

  • Miauen Miau

    I bet the way you look changed when you changed your diet. Cheers to that. You are what you eat. Unfortunately most people can’t afford a fully organic diet… STILL… just as long as we get rid of processed foods and make smarter choices, that will sure make a difference.

  • Miauen Miau

    You work out a lot, then you eat whatever you want … You dont make a habit of all these foods. That is you. Most people sit on their butt and pack processed food calories. Saying you eat what you want and is OK does not mean all people can eat what they want..

  • Miauen Miau

    i have a feeling you are bullying him yourself.. i am sure there are other ways to express the massiveness of his titties.

  • just being me

    I could be wrong but since you are not born yet I dont think you have a taste for anything so dont really see your point ???

  • Tad Pole

    Trying to argue with Nazis, the food police and control freaks is pointless. Enjoy what you want and keep it in moderation.

  • freshstart222

    So f it tastes good, its bad for you.
