It might sound crazy but it turned out that some of the everyday foods we treat as healthy can actually be harmful to our body. Nexter.org made a list of products you should be careful about and explained why.

Ice cream

Scientists from the University of Georgia conducted a series of experiments and found out the connection between popular in food industry emulsifiers and colorectal cancer.

When thickeners and emulsifiers (polysorbate 80 and carboxymethyl cellulose) are used together, they cause significant intestinal microflora changes making your body prone to inflammation and contributing to cancer development.

Additionally, milk fat is used and this made ice cream into a “fat bomb” for our body.

Ice cream increases risk of getting breast cancer in teenagers, according to Scientists from Michigan State University. And specialists from Kaiser Permanente, a medical consortium in Oakland, California, proved that women who survived after breast cancer are likely to get it again.

Despite overweighting, these products like cakes and cupcakes contain a huge dose of fats and preservatives that turns this dessert into poison. That’s why they can be stored at least 5 months without spoiling.

Salty crackers

Diabetes, stroke, heart attack, obesity, atherosclerosis, and Alzheimer’s disease are may be caused by salty crackers we all love. It’s recommended to eat less than 0.20 oz (1 tsp) of salt per day. One small salty cracker contains 3 times the daily recommended portion. Because of large amounts of salt, blood pressure can increase and an arterial spasms may occur.

Moldy cheeses

These extravagant sorts of cheese like Roquefort, Dorblu, Camembert, and Brie have a number of useful features: they increase calcium absorption, reduce the negative effect of UV rays, enrich our body with protein, prevent dysbacteriosis, improve our hormonal background and our cardiovascular system.

But you should remember that it’s recommended to consume not more than 2 oz (50 gr) of this type of cheese per day. If you exceed the norm, the intestinal microflora will be spoiled with Penicillium that causes dysbacteriosis and your body will become addicted to antibiotics.

Yogurts from supermarkets contain preservatives, thickeners, aromatizers, and other “healthy” components and they don’t really look like classic yogurts made of milk with lactic acid bacteria.

The main dangers are sugar and milk fat. It’s recommended to consume no more than 6 tsp of sugar per day. And 4 oz (100 gr) of yogurt can contain 3 tsp! Side effects are the following: obesity, risk of getting diabetes, and a weakened pancreas. The average yogurts are rather fatty (starting from 2.5%) and they increase the cholesterol levels which can cause a stroke or a heart attack.

Natural yogurts are really good for our body and it’s easy to prepare them. You’ll only need milk and dry yeast. You can also add fruit and honey to make your yogurt even tastier.

It’s hard to believe but rice also could be harmful.

Rice grows in flooded fields and gets enriched with inorganic arsenic that’s washed out of the soil. If you consume rice on a regular basis, you increase your chances of getting diabetes, developmental disorders, nervous system diseases, and even lung and bladder cancer.

Scientists from Queen’s University of Belfast conducted several experiments with rice cooking and found a way to make it harmless. If you leave rice in water overnight, the arsenic concentration will be reduced by 80%.
