What are some of the worst culprits that are wreaking the most havoc and causing the most damage and declining health? Here they are in my estimation:
#1 – Sugar and other sweeteners commonly used as sugar substitutes. And included in this is a big category of sodas.
#2 – Flour/wheat and simple carbs.
#3 – Heavily processed foods.
#4 – Bad fats.
#5 – Additives to our food, water and air – includes hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, MSG, preservatives, chemicals used in cans and water bottles, fluoride or other chemicals in water, as well as genetic modification of produce and other unnatural “natural flavors”, numerous pollutants in our air.
#6 – Inadequate or wrong exercise.
#7 – Stress, resulting in over-production of cortisol that tells the body to store fat rather than burn it and can also exhaust your adrenals.
#8 – Smoking – although this habit is becoming more unaccepted and less prevalent, there are some die-hards out there that still close their eyes on the fact that they are doing something that weakens their immune system and can cause serious physical conditions, diseases and cancer.
Now maybe this list isn’t a huge revelation to you. It probably isn’t. But all manner of health issues have arisen in the last few decades. Declining health is a problem for many Americans. With so many temptations of fast and unhealthy foods and sugar in so many things, these health dangers are more and more prevalent.
