Are you a liver lover?

Sorry for the corny title but I just remembered this commercial:

Quick off topic post. Just wanted to share this health information with you, guys.
As my Grandma always reminded me: "Health is Wealth". So true.

(info copy pasted from e-mail I got)

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause. (guilty of this)

2. Not urinating in the morning. 

3 . Too much eating. 

4. Skipping breakfast (guilty of this)

5. Consuming too much medication. 

6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener. (I think I'm guilty of this?)  

7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. 
As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired. (guilty of this) 


The top five cancer-causing foods are:

1.. Hot Dogs 
Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate. 

2. Processed meats and Bacon 
Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer. 

3. Doughnuts 
Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble.. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.. 

4. French fries 
Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams . 

5. Chips, crackers, and cookies 
All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats. 

Stay healthy, guys!
