Let's start with what not to eat it's a shorter list...lol...
I stole this from an email I got but the info is basic and I have seen it around the web, I think she basically compiled a list of data she gathered herself. She left off foods that have heavy food coloring particularly red...

These foods that are so deadly and harmful that eating
(and drinking) them on a regular basis will certainly chop
years off your life, and guarantee that the years you have
left will be filled with sickness, disease and very likely
I call them the Evil Eight.**
I hope this list helps to burn into your brain that in the
same way you can't trust government, politicians, drug
companies and insurance companies with your health, you
cannot trust Big Food manufacturers either. They create
their concoctions to make money. And they know one thing...
if it tastes good, people will eat it.
Information is power. So here's the information you need to
avoid illness and enjoy good health.
Here are the Evil Eight:
Oh, I know... boo hoo. But the truth is, ANY soda -- diet
or regular -- is acid in a bottle (or can). It's SO acidic
that it takes 32 CUPS of water to neutralize the acid in
just ONE can of soda in your body.
Having so much acidity puts a tremendous strain on your
kidneys, which filter acid out of your bloodstream and put
it into your urine.
Your body also uses its own alkaline minerals (calcium
from your bones and magnesium from your muscles) to
neutralize the acid. Eventually that can lead to
osteoporosis, weak muscles, tooth decay and brittle, porous
bones that fracture easily.
Plus soda contains the worst form of sugar on the planet --
high fructose corn syrup (more on that further down).
Don't think diet soda is any better -- because here are
the dangers of...
2) Artificial sweeteners
Simply put, they're poisons. No other way to say it.
Here are just some of the documented side effects of
aspartame (known by the brand names Equal or Nutrasweet):
-Blindness in one or both eyes
-Decreased vision and/or other eye problems such as
blurring, flashes, tunnel vision
-Eye pain; Dry eyes/decreased tears
-Severe drowsiness and sleepiness
-Numbness of the arms and legs
-Slurring of speech
-Heart palpitations/rapid heart beat
-Shortness of breath
-High blood pressure
-Diarrhea, sometimes with blood in stools
-Stomach pain/pain while swallowing
Skin and Allergies:
-Itching without a rash; Hives
Endocrine and Metabolic:
-Loss of control of diabetes
-Thinning or loss of hair
-Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
-Severe PMS symptoms
The most severe effects of aspartame poisoning are:
-Irreversible brain damage
-Birth defects, including mental retardation
-Aspartame addiction and increased craving for sweets
-Hyperactivity in children
Think Splenda is just splendid? It's no better.
Studies are associating Splenda with a growing list of
medical problems that include:
- Flushing or redness of the skin; rashes
- Anxiety; panic attacks
- Nausea; bloating; diarrhea; vomiting
- Stomach cramps
- Depression; becoming withdrawn
- Feeling forgetful; memory loss
- Feeling irate, impatient, hypersensitive, moody
- Chest and body pains
If you want to use a non-calorie sweetener, use Stevia.
It's been around for centuries and has a proven track
record of safety.
3) High fructose corn syrup
High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is directly associated
with the following conditions:
- Kidney disease
- High cholesterol
- Raised insulin levels (leading to diabetes)
- High uric acid levels (which can result in arthritis)
And the newest one: Mercury exposure
Mercury is a poison to your brain and nervous system. It
has been linked to fertility problems, memory and vision
loss, and trouble with blood pressure regulation. It can
also cause chronic fatigue and neuro-muscular dysfunction.
Mercury exposure has also been linked to autism, heart
disease, Parkinson's disease and multiple sclerosis.
The problem here is HFCS is found in just about every type
of product on the market including:
Jellies and jams
Snack chips and crackers
Non-dairy whipped topping
Packaged pastries, snack cakes and cookies
Can you believe that food manufacturers would put this
poison in our foods? Well, believe it. It's called
So what should you do? Read labels and find alternatives.
Organic products typically don't contain HFCS.
4) Hydrogenated oils
Hyrdogenated and partially hydrogenated oils contain trans-
fatty acids, which are fats that are not found in nature,
and that your body CANNOT metabolize. Instead, they just
accumulate, clog your arteries, and cause inflammation,
cell damage and heart attacks.
These bad fats are found in deep fried foods, margarine,
baked goods, powdered and artificial coffee creamers, and
most processed (packaged) foods.
Look for the words "hydrogenated" or "partially
hydrogenated" on package labels. If you see them, do NOT
buy the product.
5) Nitrite cured meats
Cured meats made with sodium nitrite (or sodium nitrate)
include hot dogs, lunch meat, bacon, ham and corned beef.
When you eat nitrites, they can be converted into
nitrosamines (which are potent cancer-causing chemicals) in
your body. The primary types of cancers associated with
nitrite consumption are colo-rectal, stomach and pancreatic.
In addition, children born to women who ate a lot of cured
meats during pregnancy are from two to three times more
likely to develop a brain tumor than those born to mothers
who did not eat cured meats.
Another study showed processed meats increased the risk of
pancreatic cancer (the deadliest of all cancers) by 67%.
6) Processed foods
Processed "foods" include all packaged foods (in boxes,
cans, jars, bags or frozen cartons) that contain
ingredients other than a basic food. Although the appeal
behind them is convenience and indefinite shelf life, they
are extremely unhealthy and loaded with chemicals and
preservatives that your body was never meant to ingest.
Besides the chemicals they contain, processed foods are
harmful to your health for these reasons:
* They provide no usable naturally occurring nutrients;
they use up loads of digestive energy, and then basically
turn to nothing but waste.
* They contain no water to transport nutrients or carry
away wastes from your body, like fruits and vegetables do.
Instead, they add to the waste pile, making you very toxic.
* Your body's hunger feeling is triggered by a need for
nutrients from real food -- not just something to occupy
space in the stomach. Since processed "foods" don't
nourish you, even though your stomach may be physically
full, the body thinks it still needs more food because it
hasn't gotten nourished from what is in the stomach.
That's why you can polish off an entire family-size bag of
Doritos then feel hungry again an hour later. No nutrition.
It's a recipe for obesity.
7) Farmed salmon
Farmed salmon are crammed into little pens and fed things
they were never meant to ingest like soy, poultry litter,
and hydrolyzed chicken feathers. As a result, farmed
salmon is lower in vitamin D than fresh caught and higher
in contaminants such as carcinogens, PCBs, and pesticides
like dioxin and DDT.
Rule of thumb: Eat wild-caught fish, not farm-raised.
8) Tap water
All water is NOT created equal. Since our bodies are
alkaline, our water must be alkaline too. Thanks to acid
rain and the chemicals added by municipalities, that's not
always a given.
Regular (unfiltered) tap water is acidic and contains
toxins like flouride and chlorine. Avoid tap water (this
includes water fountains) at ALL possible cost, no matter
what you may read in the news or your local politician may
The best sources of alkaline water are distilled water or
filtered water (using reverse osmosis, Brita filters or
There you have them -- the Evil Eight.
