There are many foods in todays modern world that we consume on a daily basis that are slowly killing us. From alcohol to processed foods, these are designed to make us weak and infertile. Today, I will educate you on 5 of the most common ones that are destroying your stomach in particular.
Foods Destroying Your Gut Health
The link between alcohol intake and your digestive system may not be obvious at first. The adverse effect don’t not emerge until after the damage has occurred. Continued drinking will amplify these effects. I’m not saying you can’t enjoy a drink once in a while, but don’t be addicted or consume alcohol on a daily basis. Ancient warriors didn’t consume it because it made them weak.
Drinking can harm the tissues in your digestive tract, making it difficult for your intestines to digest food and absorb nutrients and vitamins. This damage can lead to starvation over time.
Heavy drinking can also lead to the following:
Fullness in your abdomen due to bloating ulcers, hemorrhoids and diarrhea. Without immediate diagnosis and treatment, ulcers can cause serious internal bleeding, which can be fatal. Why consume something that makes you feel good in the short term but kills you in the long?
Industrial seed oils like soybean, canola, and maize oils, contrary to popular belief, are neither “heart healthy” or otherwise beneficial to our bodies and minds; in fact, a growing body of evidence suggests that they are making us sick. Continue reading to discover about the industrial seed oil industry’s origins, the negative health impacts of consuming these oils, and what dietary fats you should consume instead.
These seed oils, made from soybeans, corn, rapeseed (the source of canola oil), cottonseed, and safflower seeds, were only introduced into the American diet in the early 1900s. So, how did these oils become so prominent not only in the Standard American Diet but also in “Westernized” diets around the world?
Simple. They’re easy to mass produce and most people think they taste good. The masses will always consume what’s bad for them regardless of health.
It is not safe to consume degraded carrageenan, also known as poligeenan. It causes gut cancers and ulcers in animals, and it may potentially induce colon cancer, according to research. Because of the potential hazard, fewer research have looked into the human effects. As a result of these findings, the International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified poligeenan as a potential human carcinogen.
This indicates that the government looked at the evidence that poligeenan causes cancer in animals and found that it could cause cancer in people as well. Don’t risk it.
Ultra Processed Foods
Processed foods are dangerous. And we’re eating more of them than ever before, thanks in part to “Big Food’s” marketing and lobbying. Obesity, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer, frailty, depression, and death have all been linked to eating more ultra-processed foods.
The meals’ poor nutritional profile, which is heavy in added sugars, salt, and trans-fats, may be to blame. Additionally, if you consume more ultra-processed meals, you consume fewer fresh and less-processed items.
Industrial processes can be hazardous in and of itself. Certain food additives, for example, can upset our gut bacteria and cause inflammation, while packaging plasticizers can disrupt our hormone system. If you walk down the street, you’ll see limp wrist weak soyboys eating processed foods like lays potato chips. The jacked chads are eating whole foods.
The environment is also harmed by processed foods. Food packaging, for example, is a major source of plastic trash in marine environments. Think of all those potato chips the fattys eat in California which gets into the ocean an kills the marine life!
Refined grains contribute to a variety of degenerative disorders because they are nutritionally deficient.
The changed phosphorous-calcium balance in these grains causes calcium leakage from the bones and teeth. Sugar and refined grain products are the leading causes of tooth decay in the United States, as well as the leading cause of brittle bones in the elderly.
Eat whole grains whenever possible, I promise you’ll feel a lot better. You’re also getting healthy carbohydrates with these (a critical nutrient for muscle building).
