The new forty 30s, right? Well, if you continue to eat these foods, your 40 year old will look 50 years old.
Some of these foods have been shown to increase wrinkles, cause obesity, stop organ function, and make you sick. Take a look and start cleaning your kitchen of these foods today.
1. Canned soup
We know, we know - chicken soup for the soul, right? Well, not if it's canned food. A recently published 2013 study found a link between high blood pressure and skin aging.
Compared to their older counterparts, study participants with fewer wrinkles also had lower blood pressure. American guidelines call for less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day, but many popular doses contain 40 percent of the recommended daily salt intake in just one serving.
So what to eat? Hmmm, try the homemade soup, you have an idea.
2. Carbonated diet drink
Stop thinking that dark carbonated drinks are worse for you. Both are very bad. Drinks like Mountain Dew and Fresca seem to contain less car chemicals due to their lighter colors, but that's not far from the truth.
Instead of caramel color — the chemical that makes Coca-Cola brown — Diet Mountain Dew and Fresca are colored with brominated vegetable oil, a chemical used in rocket fuel and flame retardants.
It has been shown to have a negative impact on thyroid hormones and fertility, which is a major concern for the health of people in their 30s. Additional chemicals such as BVO can contribute to the internal inflammation associated with obesity.
3. Sugar-free snacks
Do you think you could do better by eating a sugar-free diet? If you've gotten fatter around your 30s, it could be a sign that your liver isn't working at its full potential.
Avoiding toxins like artificial sweeteners helps vital organs work more efficiently and, in turn, weakens your environment. To kickstart the detox process, push foods made with fake sweeteners (like sugar-free gum, candy, and snacks) to the curb and focus on things that are low in sugar or made with real/raw sugar.
4. Salami and hot dogs
Men, Pay Special Attention: A 2014 study published in the Journal of Epidemiology found an association between consuming processed meats such as salami and hot dogs to reduce sperm count.
Interestingly, the saturated fat content of meat - a nutrient previously linked to poor sperm quality - was not to blame. For one thing to be safe, limit the amount of processed meat you eat.
Try eating naturally and with grass, both of which limit the amount of hormones you can eat.
5. Microwave popcorn
In its purest form, popcorn is a healthy breakfast full of energizing whole grains. But some food companies have managed to turn something healthy into something harmful.
Popcort Butter Popcorn, for example, contains five grams of trans fat per serving — more than double the government's recommended daily limit for clogged arteries.
Trans fats are especially important as we age, as the risk of heart disease increases with age. For a healthier breakfast, go old school and put corn kernels on the stove.
6. Packaged soy sauce
Puffy dark circles under the eyes get worse every birthday - and dehydration makes things worse.
To wake up refreshed, avoid salty foods that absorb moisture, such as soy sauce (remember all the nights you've eaten Chinese food and used soy sauce wraps). One tablespoon of food contains a whopping 879 milligrams of sodium!
7. Creamy coffee
Coffee cream contains titanium dioxide, an ultraviolet radiation inhibitor that also acts as a whitening agent. In addition to conventional cream, it can also be found in so-called "healthy" bottles such as So Delicious's coconut milk juice.
Supplements have been shown to cause liver and tissue damage in mice and may also have effects on human health, according to a recent chemical review.
Coffee creamer is also usually full of trans fats, which are often hidden by a lesser-known name: hydrogenated butter. Many Coffee Mate products and other coffee cream products contain this ingredient, which has been shown to reduce memory in adults under 45 years of age.
