white flour bread
Rospotrebnadzor expert Margarita Provotorova has compiled a top list of five groups of the most harmful products.

Margarita Provotorova said that harmful products, consumption which should be limited or reduced to zero, can be divided into five groups. An expert warned about their undesirable properties in the Healthy Eating Project.

Red processed meat. Products in this category contain substances such as nitrites and nitrates. According to the specialist, during processing they are subjected to heat, due to which they can transform and turn into carcinogenic compounds. In addition, they contain a lot of saturated fats, which are harmful to the cardiovascular system.

Sweetened drinks. Any industrially produced drinks that taste sweet only saturate the body with “empty” calories and, if consumed regularly, seriously increase the risk of such ailments as obesity, metabolic syndrome, and insulin resistance.

Products with trans fats .Excess trans fats in the body stimulate inflammatory processes, which can underlie many dangerous diseases, including diabetes, atherosclerosis, arthritis, and Alzheimer's disease. A variety of industrial baked goods and deep-fried finished products contain especially high amounts of trans fats.

Alcohol. Its use can quickly lead to addiction, and regular drinking is associated with the risk of damage to almost any organ and development of mental disorders.

Refined foods.

“Bread made from premium white flour, white sugar, instant cereals – all these are refined products from which beneficial nutrients are removed: vitamins, minerals, fiber. The lack of the latter is one of the factors in the development of colorectal cancer. These products have a high glycemic index and rapidly increase blood sugar levels,” explained the specialist.
