Alcohol is another major life shorter you need to avoid. Just like red meat, alcohol is connected to other chronic health conditions. Alcohol intake can speed up your aging process. Those who abuse it also face a high risk of suffering from premature aging and other healthy conditions. Please limit your intake of alcohol as it responsible for liver cirrhosis, kidney disease, high blood pressure and other heart related disease.
5. Canned fish
Most of our fishes now are been poisoned with mercury before there are caught and this makes them harmful to the body. These high levels of dangerous substances that are stored by the fish make them not healthy for the body especially when processed and canned. Man is indirectly hurting himself because after poisoning the habitat of this fish, he will still harvest and consume them which is not good for the health.

8. White bread
Most of this commercial white bread are not healthy for your healthy especially when you consume them too much since there are made from refined wheat. This refined wheat is very low in fiber and essential nutrients and may even increase your blood sugar level. Go for a better alternative like whole-grain bread because it is healthier.

Fruits are very healthy for the body. Fruit juice are rich in vitamin C and contains antioxidant but it is important you take note that there are also very high in liquid sugar. In fact the sugar content in it is very high same way it is in Pepsi and coke. Pomegranate and blueberry juices are better alternatives.
