Try to get rid of these foods

November 4, 2014
The Western diet includes many dangerous and unhealthy foods that cause obesity, heart disease, and other chronic conditions. Foods and drinks such as fried chicken, margarine, soda, and deep fried cheese sticks should be avoided. Margarine is an affordable alternative to olive oil and butter, but it is high in saturated fats. It increases the risk for cancer and heart diseases, decreases insulin response, and weakens the immune system. Breastfeeding women should avoid margarine because it lowers the quality of milk.

Foods that are high in salt or sodium content are unhealthy. The list of foods that are high in sodium includes beef jerky, bouillon cubes, salami, and soya. Health risks associated with a high sodium diet include renal failure, osteoporosis, and hypertension. Foods that are high in salt increase the risk for edema, dehydration, hormonal imbalance, and kidney stones. Choose foods like unprocessed grain and vegetables that contain natural sodium. In fact, sodium is important for health because it regulates muscle contraction and the fluid balance in the body. Certain conditions are associated with sodium deficiency, including confusion, lethargy, and low blood pressure .

Foods that are loaded with sugar are also unhealthy and include soft drinks, molasses, pies, candies, and spreads. You may be surprised but bottled spaghetti sauce contains a lot of sugar. Sugar is associated with many modern diseases such as heart problems, obesity, and certain cancers. In addition, the consumption of sugar-laden products increases bad cholesterol, causes eczema, and prevents protein absorption by the body. Sugar can cause cancer and weakens eyesight. It is better to limit consumption and include more fruits such as blueberries, strawberries, apples, and others.

The cuisine of other countries also includes foods that are unhealthy and even dangerous. Domestic preparation of blowfish, for example, can lead to death. The liver and other organs of blowfish contain tetrodotoxin, which paralyzes the muscles. Shellfish, including scallops, oysters, and muscles, contains high levels of toxic substances. Potatoes contain toxic substances, and overexposure may lead to confusion and weakness. Unripe potatoes may cause joint pain and inflammation. While mushrooms are packed with important nutrients, some types of mushrooms are poisonous. These include the Deadly Webcap, Destroying Angels, and Death Cap. 

Rhubarb is low in cholesterol, sodium, and saturated fat and is an excellent source of manganese, potassium, calcium, and healthy fiber. However, the leaves are poisonous and can cause diarrhea, breathing difficulty, and coma. Cross-contamination is the major cause for vegetable and fruit poisoning. The symptoms of poisoning include weakness, headaches, and nausea. Poisoning sickness may last up to 10 days and treatment may be required. Some people are also allergic to foods such as walnuts, crab, and lobster. People who are allergic often experience abdominal pain, weakness, lightheadedness, and asthma.
