White flour and foods made from it like bread, snacks etc is dangerous to your health if you are 30 or above. Why is white flour bad for you? It’s bad for you because it underwent various industrial processes when making it. The nutrients which you ought to have enjoyed were removed together with the germ and bran. All that remain in white flour is starch and probably some synthetic nutrients that are added to fortify its nutritional value which may not be good for you. The flour has low quantity of fibre, vitamins, minerals and essential oils which were removed during processing. This low fibre flour when consumed can spike the amount of sugar level and the subsequent result could diabetes related complications. You can consider whole grains as an alternative.
Carbonated soft drink

Carbonated soft drinks aren’t food for you if you are within the age limit we are discussing. Most soft drinks contain high amount of sugar which is bad for you. This is because the high sugar content of the carbornated soft drinks increases the activities of the liver and pancreas as a result of increased blood sugar. Some of those labelled “sugar free” seem to be more healthier but aren’t. Some contain aspartame as a sweetener. You know that though they are labelled “sugar free” yet, they are sweet. Avoid them because aspartame is which is use as an alternative sweetener to sugar is neurotoxic. Use honey to sweeten your food instead. Go for dates and fruits; they are better for your health.

The high heat involved in frying change the chemical structures of the oil. The oil become oxidized and part of it enters into the food you are frying. Once these oxidized oils gets into your body, they behave like free radicals – molecules that have ability to destroy your cells. The health effect of having your cells destroyed by free radicals is developing cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease and even diabetes. Under no circumstances should you consume oils used for deep frying and even foods that are deeply fried eg plantain, potato or banana chips, meat etc. Bake, steam or roast instead of deep frying.

Alcohol has various ways of causing damage to your system. The liver is the organ that is responsible for removing toxic chemicals including alcohol. Consuming alcohol can interfere with this activities leading to the its inflammation popularly known as liver cirrhosis.
Alcohol could also trigger abnormal activation of digestive enzymes produced by pancreas. When there is build up of these enzymes, the pancrease may be affected. These events could also lead to high blood sugar or otherwise.
