The foods we eat on a daily basis play a critical role in keeping our bodies fit and healthy. To stay healthy and functional, one must eat properly.
Certain nutrients are required for the proper functioning of the body's organs. Most of the time, the things we eat harm our internal organs.
This article discusses three types of foods that we consume on a daily basis, which can harm human organs such as the heart and kidneys.
1. Processed foods: Processed foods, such as cakes, fast foods, beverages, and canned foods, are harmful to one's health. These are loaded with chemicals and artificial sweeteners that are bad for your heart and kidneys.
2. Fried foods: These include fried plantains, fried potatoes, fried yam, bean cake (akara), fried fish, fried eggs, and a variety of others.
Fried meals in general, do not agree with several of the body's most critical organs, such as the heart and kidneys.
Fried foods can boost cholesterol levels, which can lead to heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and other complications.
It is possible to maintain a healthy body by eating more fruits and vegetables, as against fried foods.
The following is what Healthline has to say about fried meals and the risks they pose to our health:
3. Alcohol: Excessive alcohol consumption is harmful to the body as a whole. It damages the kidneys and slows down the heart's function.
All of the foods mentioned above cause the essential organs to overwork themselves, and eventually fail.
