8 Foods That Are Slowly Destroying Your Body

Ice Cream

Enjoying a pint of ice cream can be tempting, but most popular brands are loaded with added sugars, often exceeding daily limits in just one sitting.

Potato Chips

While savory and satisfying, most potato chips are high in sodium and lack fiber. Brands like Ruffles Cheddar & Sour Cream contain artificial colors linked to health concerns.

Instant Ramen

While comforting, instant ramen is packed with sodium, sometimes exceeding daily limits in just one serving. Choose healthier options like Lotus Foods Organic Millet and Brown Rice Ramen

Store-Bought Cake

Convenient but loaded with added sugars and artificial ingredients, store-bought cakes like David's Cookies Mile High Peanut Butter Cake are indulgent but come with nutritional drawbacks.


Depending on the brand, crackers can be either fiber-rich or filled with refined flour and artificial ingredients. RITZ Bits Cheese Cracker Sandwiches, for example, contain additives like sodium phosphate.

Processed Red Meat

Pepperoni, salami, and other processed red meats often contain sodium nitrite and other additives linked to health risks like cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.


Pretzels can be a healthy snack when made from nutrient-rich ingredients. However, many commercial brands contain refined flours and high sodium levels.

Bread Bowls

While comforting, bread bowls like those popularized by Panera are high in refined carbohydrates and low in fiber. For a healthier option, enjoy your soup in a traditional bowl and pair it with a side of bread.
