Got this in an email from family. Doesn't list a source, but it's a pretty good read regardless.



*The top five cancer-causing foods are*:

1. Hot dogs

Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises
that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live
without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.


2. Processed meats and bacon
Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other
processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon
also contributes to cancer.


3. Doughnuts
Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they
are made with white
flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high
temperatures.
Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can
possibly eat to raise
your risk of cancer.


4. French fries
Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated
oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing
acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called
cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .


5. Chips, crackers, and cookies
All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the
ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small
amounts of trans-fats.


**BRAIN DAMAGING HABITS **

1. No Breakfast *

People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower
blood sugar level.
This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the
brain causing brain degeneration.


*2. Overeating
It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a
decrease in mental power..


3. Smoking
It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to
Alzheimer disease.

4. High Sugar consumption
Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins
and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain
development.


5. Air Pollution
The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body.
Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about
a decrease in brain efficiency.


6. Sleep Deprivation
Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from
sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.
Adults require 7 to 8 hours sleep daily. Children require
9 to 10 hours sleep daily for their brain to develop properly.


7. Head covered while sleeping
Sleeping with the head covered increases the concentration
of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain
damaging effects.


8. Working your brain during illness
Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a
decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.


9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in
brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.

10. Talking Rarely
Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of
the brain


11. Too much TV is bad for health
Too much TV is bad especially for children.


Watching TV before bed is not good and does not promote
good deep sleep for the brain to rest well and develop properly.


*The main causes of liver damage are: **



1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
2. Not urinating in the morning.


3. Too much eating.
4.. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.


6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food
coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking
oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive
oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is
very fit.
8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be
finished in one sitting, do not store.


We should prevent this without necessarily spending more.
We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining
good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies
to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to schedule.

this sounds like one of those psuedo scary emails directed toward college kids.

Well i'm in the process of cutting out processed meat from my diet, but the cookies and crackers are hard to get rid of.

I also gotta get my sleep right and eat a more balanced breakfast.

Other than that i'm good to go.

I didn't see beer anywhere on there--I'll just replace all the bad stuff I was using from that list with Corona and should be fine.
