The 7 Foods I Will NEVER Eat Again (no matter what)

The 7 Foods I Will NEVER Eat Again (no matter what)

Intro (00:00:00)

  • There are some foods that the speaker will never eat again due to potential risks and low enjoyment factors.
  • Some of the reasons are based on scientific evidence, while others are based on personal opinions.

Margarine (00:01:59)

  • Margarine and shortening are considered unhealthy and should not be consumed.
  • They are highly processed and contain artificial trans fats.
  • Consuming high levels of trans fats can lead to increased inflammation, visceral fat, and metabolic issues.
  • Trans fats can inhibit insulin and leptin signaling, affecting fuel processing and hunger regulation.

Pudding Cups (00:03:35)

  • The author avoids pudding cups due to emulsifiers like polysorbate 80 and polysorbate 20.
  • Polysorbate 80 has been shown to damage gut barrier cells and reduce the expression of proteins that repair the gut barrier.
  • Polysorbate 20 and polysorbate 80 can cause gut barrier cells to self-destruct.
  • The author believes the risks of consuming these emulsifiers outweigh any potential benefits.

MSG (00:06:50)

  • MSG causes negative effects such as sleeplessness, feeling unwell, and brain fog.
  • A human study showed that consuming MSG increased the pleasantness value of food and led to voluntary overeating.
  • A rodent model study found that MSG had neurotoxic effects on the brain, which were reversed by appenine.
  • MSG is an excitotoxin that lights up the brain and makes people like food more.
  • The speaker will discuss why they will never eat McDonald's french fries again.

French Fries (00:09:22)

  • French fries are considered unhealthy due to their high calorie content, potential for rancid oil absorption, and the presence of acrylamide, a known carcinogen.
  • Acrylamide is formed when plant foods are heated to high temperatures and is also found in cigarette smoke.
  • The FDA considers acrylamide to be a human health concern, and California requires a Prop 65 warning for foods containing it.
  • French fries have higher levels of acrylamide compared to other processed foods due to their high heating temperature.
  • Consuming potato chips can increase circulating acrylamide levels in the body by 38 times compared to a regular meal.
  • Other foods with high acrylamide levels include whiskey, while fruits and vegetables have very low levels.

Alcohol (00:16:32)

  • Alcohol consumption leads to increased visceral fat, even at low intake levels.
  • Alcohol prioritizes the processing of acetaldehyde, derived from ethanol, in the liver, leading to reduced fat accumulation and metabolic functions.
  • Alcohol inhibits the binding of PP to DNA, reducing fat oxidation and potentially prolonging this effect after consumption.

Red Dye 40 (00:18:38)

  • Red Dye 40 is an artificial dye linked to behavioral issues in children, particularly hyperactivity and attention problems.
  • Studies have shown that children aged 8 to 9 are most affected by Red Dye 40 consumption.
  • Personal anecdotes suggest that Red Dye 40 can cause hyperactivity in children.
  • Red Dye 40 is potentially harmful to the brain and should be avoided as it can be easily eliminated from the diet.

Tilapia (00:20:39)

  • Less than 2% of imported seafood is tested for contaminants.
  • China has been known to feed farm-raised fish feces from other animals.
  • Tilapia can survive on feces, but it is not a natural part of their diet.
  • Farm-raised tilapia may be fed feces to reduce costs.
  • Eating tilapia that has been fed feces is not worth the risk.
