margarine has long been heralded as a healthier option to butter. However the sad truth is, neither of them is a very good fear.
fame was that it contains no cholesterol and was also higher in good fats that help reduce your LDL or bad cholesterol.
Unfortunately, it’s not that straight forward as margarine is made out of trans fats which are known to clog arteries and cause cardiovascular disease just as much as butter does.
more specifically uncertified American apples. In 2012 the European food agency and apples from being sold in the EU that had been treated with a substance known as DPA.
DPA is applied to almost all apples grown in America and allows farmers to store their apples for months at a time without going off.
A real problem here lies with a study conducted by two British scientists in 1956; they reported that a chemical used in the production of DPA produced liver cancer, lung cancer and a long list of other medical problems when tested on rats.
When the EU challenged apple farmers about this, they couldn’t produce any real evidence to counter the study; so the EU banned that for safety reasons.
Many people think popcorn is a healthy snack, but the sad truth is unless you make it yourself it’s probably absolutely covered in fat oil sugar and salt, which we all know are not that good for us; despite this microwave popcorn is even worse for you, the microwavable bags are coated with PFOA s a chemical that is directly linked to cancer.

Sweets and candies that are specifically advertised as sugar-free, tend to contain artificial sweetness; and this sweetness doesn’t tend to agree with your digestive system; a great example of this are the reviews for sugar-free gummy bears on Amazon, literally, hundreds of people have complained about having extreme intestinal cramping and explosive diarrhea that went on for hours and hours after eating sugar-free candy.
while there is no sugar in most diet sodas, there is an ungodly amount of artificial sweeteners and chemicals inside; over time these ingredients screw with your taste buds and could theoretically make sweet foods taste sour resulting in you needing even more sugar to meet you needs.
