1. Sugar and high-fructose corn syrup
When it comes to the Western diet, table sugar, also known as sucrose, and high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) are the two major types of sugar we consume. Table sugar has glucose and fructose in equal parts. HFCS, on the other hand, has 55% fructose and the rest glucose.
2. Artificial trans fats
While not all fat is bad, artificial trans fat is the unhealthiest fat you can eat. Artificial trans fat is made by mixing hydrogen fats with unsaturated fats. Unsaturated fats are generally liquid. But once the hydrogen is added, they become a lot more solid.
3. Vegetable and seed oils
Compared to the previous century, the amount of vegetable oils used in the United States has risen by 130%. Certain vegetable oils, such as soybean oil, may be responsible for increasing the chances of inflammation. This is because of all the omega-6 fatty acids in these oils.
4. Refined carbohydrates
Although carbohydrates are known to be bad for you, there are some that are good for you. Human beings have always had a diet rich in fiber and unprocessed carbs. It’s always been in the fruits and roots they eat.
