1) White bread, refined flours
By definition, white bread and refined flours in general are toxic for your body because they have been stripped of virtually all vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other important nutrients. Because of this, the body does not know how to properly digest and assimilate these so-called foods, which can lead to health problems. Refined white flour has also been bleached with chlorine and brominated with bromide, two poisonous chemicals that have been linked to causing thyroid and organ damage.

2) Conventional frozen meals.
Most conventionally-prepared frozen meals are loaded with preservatives, processed salt, hydrogenated oils and other artificial ingredients, not to mention the fact that most frozen meals have been heavily pre-cooked, rendering their nutrient content minimal at best (especially after getting microwaved again at home). With the exception of a few truly healthy frozen meal brands such as Amy’s and Organic Bistro, most frozen meals are little more than disease in a box, so avoid them in favor of fresh foods.

3) White rice.
Like white bread, white rice has been stripped of most of its nutrients, and separated from the bran and germ, two natural components that make up rice in its brown form. Even so-called “fortified” white rice is nutritionally deficient, as the body still processes this refined food much differently than brown rice, which is absorbed more slowly and does not cause the same spike in blood sugar that white rice does.

4) Microwaveable popcorn.
This processed food is a favorite among moviegoers and regular snackers alike, but it is one of the unhealthiest foods you can eat. Practically every component of microwaveable popcorn, from the genetically-modified (GM) corn kernels to the processed salt and preservative chemicals used to enhance its flavor, is unhealthy and disease-promoting. On top of this, microwaveable popcorn contains a chemical known as diacetyl that can actually destroy your lungs. If you love popcorn, stick with organic kernels that you can pop yourself in a kettle and douse with healthy ingredients like coconut oil, grass-fed butter, and Himalayan pink salt.

5) Cured meat products with nitrates, nitrites.
Deli meats, summer sausage, hot dogs, bacon, and many other meats sold at the grocery store are often loaded with sodium nitrite and other chemical preservatives that have been linked to causing heart disease and cancer. If you eat meat, stick with uncured, nitrite and nitrate-free varieties, and preferably those that come from organic, grass-fed animals. source

6) Most conventional protein, energy bars.
By the way they are often marketed, it might seem as though protein and energy bars are a strong addition to a healthy diet. But more often than not, these meal replacements contain processed soy protein, refined sugar, hydrogenated fat, and other harmful additives that contribute to chronic illness. Not all protein and energy bars are bad, of course — Thunderbird Energetica, Organic Food Bar, Boku Superfood, Vega Sport, PROBAR, and Zing all make healthy protein and energy bars. Just be sure to read the ingredient labels and know what you are buying.

7) Margarine.
Hidden in all sorts of processed foods, margarine, a hydrogenated trans-fat oil, is something you will want to avoid at all costs for your health. Contrary to popular belief, butter and saturated fats in general are not unhealthy, especially when they are derived from pastured animals that feed on grass rather than corn and soy. And if animal-based fats are not for you, stick with extra-virgin coconut oil or olive oil rather than margarine.
source

8) Soy milk and soy-based meat substitutes.
One of the biggest health frauds of modern times, the soy craze is a fad that you will want to skip. Besides the fact that nearly all non-organic soy ingredients are of GM origin, most soy additives are processed using a toxic chemical known as hexane, which is linked to causing birth defects, reproductive problems, and cancer. Soy that has not been fermented is also highly estrogenic, which can throw your natural hormone balance out of whack.
source

9) “Diet” anything.
Many so-called “diet” products on the market today contains artificial sweeteners like aspartame (Equal) and sucralose (Splenda), both of which are linked to causing neurological damage, gastrointestinal problems, and endocrine disruption. Many diet products also contain added chemical flavoring agents to take the place of fat and other natural components that have been removed to artificially reduce calorie content. Instead, stick with whole foods that are as close to nature as possible, including high-fat foods grown the way nature intended, and your body will respond surprisingly well.

That's your freedom, by all means. I too, crack sometimes and indulge in something I know may not be good for me.. But seeing as back at 21 years old, they told me I had cervical cancel developing, a change was an immediate necessity

After 2 years of turning my entire eating habits around not only am I in the clear with the cells, I have yet to have any kind of cold or ailment. That's what good, REAL food can do for your body.
Just sayin'

Jeez that sums up about everything.

I'm not sure there's much choice beyond growing your own food.
Seems to be the healthiest way to eat.

I'd say stick to veggies, fruits, nuts and meats.

But guess what?
Either way...you're still gonna die.
So no matter how healthy you want to be, you can't live forever.

Enjoy what you want, within moderation.

Live life!

Good on you. Sorry to hear about your misfortune, I'm really glad you overcame such a thing. I probably could do really well from your advice but in the end it won't matter so I am going to enjoy all that I enjoy while I can.

I agree with all of this but really if you want to go out on a limb and say avoid white bread and white rice, avoid the brown stuff as well. Grains in the long term are horrible for the human body the biggest culprit being wheat.

Great list and we follow all this in our home. I banned all soy and non organic corn in my house 4 years ago. I'm glad my husband cooperates with my efforts, even though he frequently complains. But he understands why we can't have these things.

People can also learn some wonderful replacement for wheat, sugar, dairy, etc. making milk and butter from nuts is tasty and healthy. Indulge in muffins made with oat flour instead of wheat. Coconut oil is a kitcken and bathroom miracle. i make the most decadent chocolate from it! Almond and coconut flours are also great for baking. Stevia is a great replacement for sugar, without the harmful side effects that you get from aspartame and Splenda.

And, just to add, another food you should never eat again......fast food! My 4 year old has never ever tasted McDonald's, and never will for as long as I can help it!

Go ahead, 90% of ALL people get bladder cancer, probably from nitrates in stuff ln hot dogs. If youd like a peepee bag with a tube coming out of your body, then eat all the hot dogs,pepperoni and ham you like. Hope you got something out of this.

I thought those were a given

I haven't touched McDeath in a long long time, I'm surprised people still eat that garbage after all of the data on how awful it is for you is out there.

And really cool that the previous poster hasn't fed her child any of it, it seems so many parents (including my own) just wanted a quick/effortless option. Good on you!!!

Great list. The only baddies I eat on it are white rice and soy.
I eat soy mainly because I'm allergic to milk and wheat and its tricky to find cheese substitutes!
Good research starred and flagged.

I know better than to eat deli meats in the packages that hang from the shelves like Oscar Mayer and such. I haven't bought those in years. However, I do shop at the actual deli/butchers for hand-sliced sandwich meat that they make custom for my orders. Is that still bad?

Processed sandwich meat, hot dogs, etc. are not allowed in my home so I want to know about the meats I am buying. Thanks!

There is one that's made from a root, I forget the name of it, but you can find it in many health food stores sold as a vegan cheese. It's actually stretchy and gooey, just like cheese. Try oat and almond flours, they are so much tastier than wheat anyway. Wheat and soy are 2 of the top gmo crops, so I would be careful.

That's a really good question! I am not too sure, I'm trying to find some stuff online about it and I can't seem to find too much information.

Yeah, I'm hitting a roadblock, too, while searching.

The articles state to avoid the processed meats like sausages and bologna (which I already do). We only buy the chicken breast and turkey breast and maybe/rarely get some ham and roast beef.

If possible, I get low sodium. From the articles I am finding, one is supposedly to also look for nitrate-free and organic. My grocery day is today anyways so I will let you know what I find out when I ask about it.

I'm also intolerant to oats and almonds! Sucks eh!
We don't have GM soy in UK. Yet anyway.

Can we please start banning links to Natural News? These are the same guys who were literally telling cancer patients to take baking soda as a cure and to stop their chemotherapy. They are probably amongst the more dangerous "disinformation 4 profit" websites you'll find on the Internet. At least before it's news and ATS is just filled with paranoid hacks.

Natural news can be discredited to some degree but the information provided is not only basic knowledge of nutrition, but also found through many other sources.
