All of the following are health hazards.
High salt levels
Sugar and most artificial sweeteners.
Americans now consume roughly 25 times as much sugar and
equivalents as was typical around 1900, which is not
healthful. Refined sugar, high fructose syrup, and the
three major artificial “no calorie” sweeteners (aspartame,
saccharin, and sucralose) release chemicals into the body,
and high usage has been implicated in headaches, cancers,
lupus, and multiple sclerosis.
Anyone wanting to lose weight should not ingest any sweets
that are not natural to foods, such as fresh or dried
Instead of candy, try a handful of raisins and almonds, nuts
which provide beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids like those
found in fish.
It is interesting that children taking drugs for “Attention
Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder” (ADHD), such as Ritalin,
often get better when all processed sugars are removed from
their diets, and the drugs stopped.
