8 Foods That No Food Expert Would Consume

Did you know that many foods that are labeled as healthy are actually a threat? Food experts around the world avoid certain foods and if they’re avoiding them, maybe we should too.Here are the 8 foods no food expert would consume:

1. Fresh juice

This is quite a surprise but freshly squeezed orange juice can cause infections. It’s better to drink pasteurized orange juice because it doesn’t contain any bacteria, but if you want to get the vitamins, eat a whole orange instead.

2. Sprouted grains

Sprouted grains contain salmonella and E.coli and they’re often treated with chemicals. Try eating sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds instead.

3. Raw meat

Raw meat definitely contains salmonella and E coli. If you want to prevent those,eat medium-well or well-done meat.

4. Fresh milk

The way fresh milk is extracted isn’t really sterile, so there’s a possibility that the milk contains bacteria or viruses. Drink pasteurized or boiled milk instead.

5. Raw oysters

Raw oysters are proven to be a breeding ground of bacteria. Try baked oysters, they taste just as good and are much healthier.

6. Meat products

One American study shows that even the most expensive meat contains nitrates and nitrites that can cause cancer. For example, one sausage contains 400% more salt than the daily recommended intake. Substitute those products with jerky meat.

7. Packaged food made of two or more ingredients

These foods contain a lot of butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylhydroxytoluene (BHT) as preservatives. Unfortunately, these preservatives can cause hormonal disorder and cancer tumors. It’s better to cook fresh meals than to use these types of products.

8. Pre-washed and sliced veggies and fruits

Veggies and fruits that are sold washed and sliced have been touched by many hands and the more people touch the food, the chance of getting bacteria is higher. Buy whole fruits and veggies.
