In the modern world, we face a lot of dangers and risks in whatever we do, especially when it comes to what we eat. Most of us know that we should eat better. But let's be honest, how often does it happen? You start your week with a balanced diet, but come Friday, you are having pizza for supper. Afterwards, you hangout with your friends and have a couple of beers. Not easy.
Well, that aside, there are some things that we can't control. Unfortunately, some foods that we eat are poisonous to our bodies. And the worst part is that we don't even know when we consume these foods. So today, I will be sharing with you some of these foods that if you continue eating, become a threat to your life.
This juicy, red fruit that is a key ingredient in the kitchen has a poison. This poison is called Glycoalkaloid, and it is found in the leaves. It causes stomachaches, severe cramping and anxiety. So if you are going to eat tomatoes, stay away from the leaves and stems.
A lot of people are allergic to peanuts. The most severe response here is anaphylaxis, which leads to extreme constriction of the air ways, shock and even loss of consciousness. It is actually dangerous enough to cause death, if left untreated.
3. Raw meat and uncooked eggs
Raw meat like red meat, poultry and sea food, together with uncooked eggs contain salmonella bacteria. This can cause gastroenteritis in humans. Salmonella poisoning can lead to serious complications like bacteremia. This happens when salmonella enters the blood stream. It is more life threatening to people with weaker immune systems. So just cook the meat and eggs before consumption, to avoid any risks.
4. Refined white carbohydrates
White bread, white rice, cookies, cakes, breakfast cereals- all have one thing in common. They are enriched in white flour. How much you include these foods into your diet, determines the way your body metabolizes food. It also determines your level of energy. Refined grains are stripped off of most nutrients.
Plus they also digest faster into simple sugars, causing blood sugar levels to spike and quickly lower. Also, consumption of these foods is linked to weight gain, inflammatory conditions, type 2 diabetes, cardio vascular diseases and high blood pressure.
5. Hot dogs
Yes, I said it. People love this snack, especially kids. But you should know that this is the leading cause of chocking fatalities among children. So watch your kids while they eat these things.
Additionally, hot dogs are full of sodium, chemicals and toxins. Actually regular weekly consumption, can increase your risk of colorectal cancer by about 21%. This same rate of consumption leads to high levels of serum phosphates, which in turn causes heart diseases, chronic kidney diseases, weak bones and accelerated aging. Not pretty, is it?
