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.

    a big balony sandwich…. Indeed, a lot of foodstuffs are terrible, but the reasoning behind this article is bullcrap…

    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.

    Well I guess I have just stop eating PERIOD

    “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.

    Anyone who likes mayo and pizza. Together.

    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’

    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?
