Artificial Trans fats are one of the unhealthiest fats you can consume. Trans fats, commonly found in margarine, are added to processed food to extend their shelf life, but they will not extend your life. These trans fats will lower your HDL (good) cholesterol and increase your risk of heart disease.
Eating processed meats, such as sausage, bacon, ham, and beef jerky may lead to increased risks of heart disease, diabetes, and intestinal cancer. Of all these types of cancer, colon cancer is the strongest associated risk due to the inflammatory response of the colon to the processed meat.
Lastly, excessive amounts of alcohol can lead to severe inflammatory problems. Those who consume excessive amounts of alcohol develop problems with wide spread inflammation and secondary organ damage. Alcohol should be limited to 1 – 2 standard drinks per day, this has been shown to actually have some positive health benefits.
Those individuals with chronic inflammatory issues should be aware of the food they intake. Controlling the amounts of these inflammatory causing foods can lower your body’s natural inflammatory process and help you deal with chronic illnesses.
