Top 10 Worst Foods

Top 10 Worst Foods

Let’s face it:  there are grocery and convenience stores (not to mention schools and school vending machines) that are full of chemical- and sugar-laced foods we should never eat.  I’m frequently asked which ones are the worst.  So, here are my picks for the top 10 worst foods you may be eating, in order, from terrible to tragic.  The #1 Worst Food of All Time may surprise you!

10.  Ice Cream—Sorry, I know just about everyone loves ice cream, but today’s ice cream is not only full of sugar, most of it is also loaded with trans fats, artificial colors and flavors, many of which are known neurotoxins (brain- and nervous-system damaging chemicals).  Of course, there are healthier varieties, but most ice cream is hazardous to your health.

9.  Corn and Tortilla Chips—Since the advent of genetically-modified foods, most corn we eat is a health-damaging frankenfood. Corn causes rapid blood sugar fluctuations, which you may notice as mood-swings, weight gain, or irritability, among other symptoms. Most are fried in oils that have turned rancid and are linked to inflammation.

8.  Pizza—While not all pizza is bad, most of the commercially available and frozen pizza on the market is full of artificial dough conditioners and preservatives.  It is made from white flour that has been bleached and reacts in your body just like sugar, causing weight gain and blood sugar imbalances.

it is the same old thing : if you can find natural bacon from a source where the pigs are fed on natural food stuffs ( non GMO ) then it is just fine to eat it, even healthy ( remember our body needs fat ! ) - if you have to buy it at a store, yes, better to forget about it !

Who came up with this list?

A number of these things on the list, I don't eat anyway. There is nothing with a good homemade pizza. Well made ice cream is fine in moderation. Certainly diet soda is a toxic brew. I wonder if Monsanto sprays it on its GMO veggies, another pretend food.

Teresa W, how can you say that all healthy food tastes disgusting? There is a lot of wonderful tasting healthy foods out there.

This confirms once again that all tasty foods are harmful to health (though not all harmful foods are tasty; bacon and hotdogs are disgusting), while all healthy ones taste awful.

Ants are the very best! As an anteater, I can confirm this.

What horrifying crap so many people like to ingest! Hot dogs! They make me shudder with disgust.

THE most dangerous "food" is actually unfermented soy.
