Today, nutritionists make the most diverse lists and ratings of dangerous products, warning that pizza, fried meat, beer and many other things that are delicious to humans are deadly. But fortunately, among the nutritionists, there are also kind people who are ready to dispel these terrible myths.
It turns out that “beer in the morning is not only harmful, but also useful.” But, if without jokes, then moderate consumption of beer can help with such things as digestion and even cancer prevention. Hops also have anti-inflammatory properties. Also, studies have shown that those who drink a bottle of beer per day, have a 25% less chance of cardiovascular disease.
Ketchup contains an enormous amount of an antioxidant called lycopene. Studies show that this antioxidant can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Just try to choose ketchup where there are fewer chemicals.
Red meat is blamed for almost any disease – from heart attacks and stroke to cancer. However, more recent studies have shown that there are no clear causal relationships. Also, there is no conclusive evidence that eating red meat significantly increases the level of cholesterol in the blood. In this case, red meat contains one of the most easily digestible forms of vitamin D, which is good for bones, and zinc, which is absorbed better than from vegetables.
In addition to being full of protein in bacon, which makes it a good low-carb snack, bacon actually has less saturated fat than beef. It also contains a choline substance that helps keep the brain healthy and can even prevent mental illnesses like Alzheimer’s. Omega-3 fatty acids, as well as choline contained in bacon, can also help prevent heart disease
Popcorn is really damn good for a person. It is full of fiber and antioxidants. The problem with popcorn is that people usually mix a lot of harmful products, such as sugar, salt and oil.
Pizza can also be useful (of course, it depends on the dough, the filling, and the amount was eaten). For example, a slice of vegetarian pizza from vegetables with tomato sauce and cheese can provide the body with vitamins and calcium.
