7 Dangerous Products in Your Kitchen

September 2, 2015

There are many common harmful products, such as fast food and sweet drinks, and everyone uses them at their own risk (or out of apathy). But there are foods and other things in the environment that are unknown. However, they may seriously affect one’s health. Here are seven of hazards that may be present in your kitchen.

  1. Citrus

Citric acid present in citrus harms the teeth: it is deposited on the enamel and destroys it. This concerns beverages containing citric acid.

In addition, one study in the UK confirmed that citrus has a bad influence on bone tissue as a whole.

This does not mean that it is necessary to abandon all citrus fruits, but to reduce your consumption is possible — eat lemons and oranges not more than two to three times a week.

  1. Popcorn

Despite it being low-calorie, popcorn cannot be considered safe, because it is very bad for the teeth. Sugar and carbohydrates, present in the snack, in the interaction with the saliva produce lactic acid, which destroys tooth enamel.

Despite the fact that other sweet snacks also have sugar and carbohydrates, popcorn produces most lactic acid.

In addition, the kernel of popcorn can get stuck between the teeth or between the tooth and gum, damaging tissue and cause infection.

  1. Products in vacuum packing

It turns out that vacuum packaging, which is considered a great way to keep food fresh, actually promotes the growth of harmful bacteria that can even lead to death.

  1. Too much water

It would seem that water cannot harm, on the contrary, the lack of water is harmful. But in fact, excess water can also cause damage to the body. This is unlikely to threaten those who are sitting at home quietly, but in sports, especially in summer, it can be a serious problem.

  1. Cooking on Teflon

Almost every house has a pan with Teflon coating, and there is still no reliable data that polytetrafluoroethylene (also known as Teflon) causes cancer, but it can’t be called completely safe.

When PTFE is heated to a high temperature, it can release dangerous gases that cause people symptoms similar to the flu and just kill poultry.

  1. Low-fat milk

Many people believe that low-fat milk is a great way to get all the vitamins and nutrients and still stay in shape. However, in reality it is not as helpful as it sounds.

The fact is that in the process of defatting milk, nutrients are removed too. Moreover, some manufacturers add to the milk product, which contains a large number of particularly harmful oxidized cholesterol.

  1. Ice cream

Natural ice cream made from milk, cream and butter, is hard to find, and it can be expensive.

Even in natural ice cream there are thickeners and flavors that slow metabolism and have a bad influence on health. They enhance the levels of cholesterol, and in some experiments on animals, it has even promoted the development of cancerous tumors.

There are many more dangerous things that people face in everyday life, so visit or to learn more about them. Here you will also find the solutions how to improve your health.

We are not saying that it is necessary to eliminate these seven points of your life immediately, but at least you’ll know what kind of damage they can cause.
