It's safe to say that most people out there are eating food that's bad for their health. They're consuming processed meat, sweets, sodas, and fast food on a daily basis. To be completely honest, the pace and the nature of this modern life simply does not allow them to grow their own vegetables and make their own food. These days, if someone wants to eat non-processed meat and fresh vegetables, they have to move to the countryside or date a cowboy. In all seriousness, a healthy and balanced diet is one of the most important things for your well-being. That being said, let's review the top 3 foods that you should never eat.

Stick Margarine

Back in the day, most people thought that margarine was a healthy alternative to butter. However, after many studies, scientists figured out that margarine is actually not that good for overall health. In fact, results showed that stick margarine is full of saturated and trans fats, which are extremely bad for you. The manufacturers use saturated fat because it is more solid than other, healthier alternatives.

Scientists and doctors from all around the world consider margarine to be pseudo-food that's been processed to look and taste exactly like regular butter. It is filled with artificial ingredients and trans fats which are known to raise your LDL (bad cholesterol) and lower your HDL (good cholesterol). As you can probably assume, this can lead to rather serious health issues like heart attacks and strokes. If you want to prevent these horrible scenarios, make sure to avoid stick margarine at all costs.

Packaged Pastries, Cookies and Cakes

Most people simply can't live without sweets. However, some of them think that cookies and cakes from nearby stores are healthier than chocolate bars. Naturally, this is a huge mistake. Most of these delicious products you see on the shelves of your local convenience store are actually made of added sugar, refined wheat flour, and added fats. Stuffing cookies and pastries with these unhealthy ingredients provides them with a longer shelf-life and this process is called partial hydrogenation. This basically means that these sweets are full of trans fats, which, like we said before, are very bad for your cholesterol. These products have no essential nutrients, but they're full of artificial ingredients and calories. Also, consuming this food on a daily basis can cause Type 2 diabetes.

Deep Fried Food

No, not the tasty French fries? Unfortunately, yes! The delicious fries and many other deep-fried foods are extremely bad for your health. First of all, preparing food on such high temperatures releases certain toxins that are not welcome in a human body. Also, the fat from fried food goes straight to your waist and it can cause serious health issues like stroke and cancer. This type of food has been linked to breast, pancreatic, and prostate cancer. On top of that, eating deep fried food on a regular basis may clog your arteries which can ultimately lead to nasty cardiovascular diseases.
