Dangerous Foods

Below are some dangerous foods you should avoid. They are color coded for danger level, but all should be generally avoided. 

Vegetable Oils 

Most vegetable oils are high in omega-6 but low in omega-3. To understand the importance of this, read this article. Put simply, processed foods high in omega-6 fatty acids induce inflammation, whereas those rich in omega-3 alleviate it. Additionally, the majority of these oils contain high levels of trans fat and are oxidative, generating free radicals within the body, which are implicated in nearly every disease.

  • Grapeseed oil  – while often marketed as a health food, its common processing renders it an oxidizing agent. Grapeseed extract is great and very healthful, but grapeseed oil is not. Its effect on the body becomes corrosive and harmful, devoid of any healing properties.
  • Palm oil – lacking omega-3 but very high in omega-6, palm oil undergoes processing to such an extent that it ceases to be a food and transforms into a toxic substance foreign to the body, devoid of any nutritional value.
  • Canola oil – extracted through heat from rape seeds and further refined through processes involving chemicals akin to those found in gasoline, glue, and rubber cement, canola oil has more in common with motor oil than food.


High fructose corn syrup

Processed Sugars

  • Splenda
  • Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet)
  • Sweet’N Low, SugarTwin. You might as well use straight sugar. These alternatives are toxic!
  • Stevia (processed. Whole leaf stevia is fine)
  • White sugar


Nitrites from processed foods and meat destroy the delicate balance of the system and promote cancer and other diseases. Nitrites (or nitrates) from whole plants like kale do the opposite and actually prevent disease. An easy way to remember it is this: whole plants not supplements, what God created, not what man isolated. 


Meat, especially processed meats are associated with severe and deadly illnesses including heart disease, cancer, dementia, iron deficiency, and premature aging. The book The China Study does an incredible job of proving that the longest living and healthiest people on earth eat only or mostly plants.

Multi vitamins

Many think that multivitamins are reducing their risk of disease, but they can actually increase your risk. Multivitamins are largely made of isolates, inorganic compounds, and dead matter, and have no vitalizing power for the body. Alfalfa, nettle, and either barley or wheat grass are some of nature’s multivitamins.

Artificial colors

Red, yellow, blue, green, all the food coloring ingredients are hormone disrupters, affect all the glandular organs and can promote disease. They should be avoided. Some are even made from ground up insects like beetles. 

Yeast Extracts

In order to produce yeast extracts or MSG, processes like hydrolysis are needed to splice into the cell wall of yeast cells to degrade it down into broken amino acids. This unnatural processing of yeast results in an end product that is a neurotoxin. Yeast extracts are now commonly used flavor enhancers in many processed foods.
