In today’s article we are going to present you a list of 5 white poisons that a lot of people are consuming on daily basis. These foods can be really dangerous and harmful for your overall health. Read on and find out why you should avoid these white poisons.
Five white poisons are:
- Pasteurized cow’s milk
- White rice
- White flour
- Refined sugar
- Refined salt
By consuming the above mentioned products every day, you substantially increase the risk of hypertension, diabetes and many other common diseases. Many separate studies showed that people who eat white rice 5 times a week, have increased risk of getting diabetes by 17%?
Stop consuming these 5 white poisons!
Pasteurized Cow Milk
Pasteurization is process during which the milk gets longer shelf-life. At this point it is important to highlight that during this process, all of the good enzymes, as well as the vitamins A, Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B12 are removed by the so-called “pasteurizing” process. Namely, this process is really bad due to the fact it allows the transfer of hormones and antibiotics into the milk.
Additionally, this process destroys the beneficial bacteria found in raw milk, such as lactobacillus acidophilus. In addition to this, pasteurizing destroys 20% of the iodine contained in raw milk, which may lead to constipation and generally it takes from the milk its most vital qualities.
The processing of white rice includes a refining process through which outer layer and germ is removed. Due to this, endosperm is the only thing remained. It mainly is consisted of starch. It is important to mention that white rice substantially increases the glucose levels in the blood stream, which may cause diabetes.
White flour is consisted of just small amount of the nutrients of the original grain. But there are additional chemical treatments needed for grain formation of this product. It is so-called alloxan and is utilized in the industry for producing medical research diabetes in healthy mice. The alloxan compound is another common cause for diabetes. Namely, it turns massive amounts of free radicals in the pancreatic beta cells and that destroys them.
White sugar cannot be considered as a food, but we can say that it is pure chemical substance. The reason for this is because it doesn’t contain any proteins, vitamins, minerals, it has no enzymes, no micro elements, no fiber, no fat or any other benefit. Namely, this chemical substance is extracted from plant sources, for instance from sugar cane or beet. In this process its juice is extracted. During that, all fiber-forming proteins and 90% of the healthy nutrients are removed.
This is how the extraction process goes: in order to remove the liquid (containing sugar), producers add lime, which creates an alkaline reaction that kills almost all vitamins. Additionally, to speed up the lime process, manufacturers also add carbon dioxide. The sugary liquid passes through tubes which remove all impurities. After this, treatment with calcium sulfate and sulfuric acid bleaching follows, which leaves the “sugar” product almost white.
Salt that many people from all around the world consume basically is sodium chloride. There are researches that have proved that consumption of this type of salt may lead to certain cardiovascular roblems. Also, it is important to mention that refined salt can have harmful side-effects on people who consume it regularly.
Table salt also usually contains iodine, which is necessary for good health. Most of the processed and junk foods that contain salt actually do not have the added iodine. Another additive that is included in the salt refining process is fluroide. This compound can be bad for you if you consume too often.
It is highly recommended to avoid consummation of any of these foods and instead, choose healthy food such as raw fruits and vegetables.
