Here are 5 food products you might believe are good for you due to clever marketing and misleading information, but they really are not healthy.
1. Soy products including tofu, soy milk, and soy proteins - Non-organic soy products are most likely GMO. As a matter of fact, 90% of non-organic soy products sold in the U.S. are from genetically modified crops.
2. “Healthy” cereals -
3. Low-fat, low-sodium, or “lite” soups - Canned soups, no matter the label, are not a healthy option.
4. Agave - ... Like these sweeteners, agave isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It contains about 55% fructose, is highly processed, and lacks nutritional value. Need a little sweetener? Try raw, organic, locally-sourced honey.
5. Diet soda - Is diet soda bad for you? You bet. While diet soda doesn’t contain loads and loads of sugar like typical cola, this ‘healthy’ drink has been tied to everything from kidney failure and cancer, to obesity and stroke. Stick to filtered water.
