9 Foods That Destroy Your Body And Health



How to Avoid Food Poisoning. When you choose healthy foods at the grocery store, you probably hope to buy something useful for yourself and your family. But research shows that some of the most popular health foods out there can be dangerous and, in the worst-case scenario, even fatal. Here’s a list of 9 foods that can harm, poison, or infect your body and tips on how you can avoid these issues and enjoy all the tasty foods you like.

Why lettuce can be dangerous 0:45
Researchers from the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) have analyzed 12 years’ worth of statistics with the goal of finding out which products led to the highest number of food-poisoning cases. There were 363 outbreaks of contaminated lettuce that poisoned 13,568 people. The reason of poisonings was E. coli bacteria. It affects both people and animals. In the worst cases, symptoms include dehydration, bloody diarrhea, and eventually kidney failure. It’s especially dangerous for pregnant women, children, elderly people, and those with a weakened immune system.

Reasons to be careful with eggs 2:35
The 2nd place on the list of dangerous foods goes to eggs. In the last 12 years, there have been 352 contamination outbreaks, resulting in 11,163 individuals falling ill. The bacteria to blame for these poisonings is Salmonella. It can be extremely dangerous particularly for children, the elderly, and people whose immune system is weakened. Never ever eat raw eggs. It’s also a good idea to avoid especially “runny” ones since they could’ve been stored at inappropriate temperatures that allowed the bacteria to multiply before you even bought the carton.

How cheese can be dangerous for your health 5:54
In 83 outbreaks of contaminated cheese over the last 12 years, 2,761 people found themselves with food poisoning. There are no toxic chemicals naturally present in cheese, but at any stage of its production, infectious microorganisms can find their way into this product loved by so many. Pregnant women are to be extra careful with soft cheeses like Brie, feta, Camembert, and Mexican-style cheeses. These sorts have the highest chances of getting infected with Listeria, a strand of bacteria that can potentially cause a miscarriage. Buy cheese only from manufacturers you know and trust. Check that they pass health inspections with flying colors so that you don’t end up with a nasty infection.

Why you should be careful with meet products 7:22
According to statistics, 12% of hot dogs and other meat products are infected with E.coli and pathogenic microorganisms like Listeria and Salmonella. Again, the elderly, pregnant women, and children under the age of one are at a higher risk of becoming ill with listeriosis. This bacterial infection can damage the nervous system and even cause meningitis. To protect yourself, make sure that you cook poultry and meat products like hot dogs and sausages until the temperature in the center is 160°F.

-The bacteria in eggs can be extremely dangerous particularly for children, the elderly, and people whose immune system is weakened.
-The infection that develops as a result of chicken bacteria contamination is usually quite mild, but there have been fatalities among the elderly, those with a weak immune system, and young kids.
-Tuna poisoning can cause skin rashes, headaches, vomiting, stomach aches, diarrhea, increased heart rate, and even loss of vision.
-There are no toxic chemicals naturally present in cheese, but at any stage of its production, infectious microorganisms can find their way into this product loved by so many.
-The bacterial infection hot dogs and meat products can cause can damage the nervous system and even cause meningitis.

  1. Your title is wrong, It is NOT the food, BUT the poor handling, storage and Contamination of the food that caused the danger, only correct one is Soda, because too much of it is bad for ones health. Always ensure that any food item is safe to eat, if not then don’t eat it

  2. Does that mean I can't eat eat eggs, chicken, cheese, hotdogs or drink soda anymore?! I have these sometimes and I dont get sick, so no more of these food items? I hate this video! My mom says I can eat them! I'm not happy!

  3. Kind of knew it would be a vegetable like lettuce because you don't cook it but, you can't forget everyone touches it how many times is contaminated by other things

  4. When I was in 4th grade, I got a nasty case of ptomaine from a rotten school hot dog; I thought I was going to die! 20 years ago, I suffered from terrible migraine headaches, and found out that I was eating too many hot dogs and too much baloney and I was sensitive to the nitrates in them, I hardly ever eat them now. I hardly ever drink soft drink anymore either, but when I do, it's the clear ones. I don't see how people can stand to drink those things. Filtered water and diluted juice is all I ever drink now.

  5. Not true lettuce is very healthy for you it's only a problem if you don't wash them off before you use them
