In biology, poisons are substances that cause disturbances in organisms, usually by chemical reaction or other activity on the molecular scale, when an organism absorbs a sufficient quantity. You probably didn’t know how dangerous and harmful these 5 “poisons” can be, and this is why you consumed them every day. But, now we are going to tell you and you won’t have any excuses. White rice, refined salt, pasteurized cow’s milk, refined sugar, and white flour are the five white poisons because they contain very few nutrients, protein, and vitamins. If you consume these 5 products every day, you will increase the risk of hypertension, diabetes, and other common diseases. Did you know that people who eat white rice 5 times a week, have up to 17% increased the risk of getting diabetes? This is just one example of how dangerous and harmful these products can be. You need to know them better before you eat them every day.
Avoid these 5 white poisons
The white flour is almost pure starch and it contains just a small amount of the nutrients of the original grain. Additional chemical treatments result in grain formation of a product called alloxan used in the industry for producing medical research diabetes in healthy mice. The alloxan diabetes causes by turning massive amounts of free radicals in the pancreatic beta cells, destroying them.
The white sugar can’t be considered as a food, but as a pure chemical substance, which is extracted from plant sources such as sugar cane or beet. Then, its juice is extracted in this process, which completely removes all fiber-forming proteins and 90% of the healthy nutrients.
To remove the liquid (containing sugar), they add lime, which creates an alkaline reaction that kills almost all vitamins. Then they add carbon dioxide to accelerate the lime process. Then this sugary liquid passes through tubes that remove all the impurities. Then comes another treatment with calcium sulfate and sulfuric acid bleaching, which leaves the “sugar” product almost white.
The refined sugar has no proteins, vitamins, minerals, it has no enzymes, no microelements, it has no fiber, no fat and not of no benefit in human food. This sugar provides just energy and nothing more.
Pasteurized Cow Milk
Well, the pasteurization process might help give milk a longer shelf-life, but the costs of doing so are high. The stripping process removes valuable enzymes, vitamins A, C, B6, and B12. And at the same time, allowing for the transfer of hormones and antibiotics into the milk.The pasteurization process also kills off beneficial bacteria that can be found in raw milk, like lactobacillus acidophilus. The pasteurization process also destroys 20 percent of the iodine present in raw milk, causes constipation and generally takes from the milk its most vital qualities.
The white rice can significantly increase the glucose levels in your bloodstream, which is a risk for diabetes.
The white rice processing includes a refining process which removes the outer layer and germ. And basically, what remains is the endosperm, which consists mainly of starch.
The salt we all use is basically sodium chloride. This product increases the risk of some cardiovascular problems. Refined salt has its share of harmful side effects to those who consume it regularly too. While table salt has iodine, which is necessary for your good health, the many processed or junk foods that contain salt do not have the added iodine.
Fluoride is another additive included in the salt refining process that can be bad for you when you consume too much. If you consume too much salt, you can end up with high blood pressure problems.
We really hope that you will stop eating these five food “poisons” and you will add much healthier food to your diet (fruits, vegetables, whole grain foods, etc.), and we also hope that you find this article helpful.
