Everyday Foods That May Be Harmful

It seems that just about everyday we hear about the harmful effects of this food or that food to the point where it’s hard to figure out what really is good for us. Now we see that some common everyday foods may have some harmful effects.

The Wall Street Cheat Sheet came up with a list of foods that may–underline may–have some harmful effects.

Microwave Popcorn– The problem here doesn’t originate with the popcorn but with the bag. Chemicals embedded in the lining that  latch on to the popcorn and then you.

Chicken Nuggets–A study concluded that randomly sampled chicken from two national chains was mostly composed of chicken fat, along with “epithelium, bone, nerve, and connective tissue.”

Stick Margarine– Stick margarine differs from tub margarine because it normally has more trans fat. This is a problem because it increases the risk of heart disease, raises blood cholesterol levels, and manages to lower good cholesterol, too.

Canned Tomatoes–Again, the issue isn’t the content but the container. The cans themselves contain bisphenol-A, or BPA. BPA has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.

As if these weren’t enough there are a number of other everyday foods that might give us pause. Then again, as with most foods that may or may not be harmful I tend to take my chances.
