The Dangers Of Eating Canned Foods by ogedanny: 5:50pm On Oct 15, 2017
The dangers of eating canned foods – A large amount of food that is found in supermarkets is canned which can cause harm to your health. So, why not go for natural foods instead of these dangerous canned foods

A canned food is likely to have BPA (bisphenol A) – a chemical known to cause breast cancer, reproductive problems, heart disease and other chronic health problems. Cans have a special covering made with this chemical. It accumulates in the body and its effects are not good. Eating canned foods has become a habit for many of us. This chemical (BPA) kills rats in laboratories even at smaller portions. This chemical causes hormone imbalances and a wide variety of health issues. You can try glass jars instead of cans for the storing of food.

What most people are unaware of is that most often foods are put into aluminium cans, then sealed, and then cooked, supposedly to retain freshness. But it will certainly retain the aluminium free radicals hanging around after heating and contaminating the food. Aluminum accumulation in the body can cause memory problem like Alzheimer’s. Some people believe that the plastic lining of the aluminium cans is supposed to prevent corrosion and contaminating food with aluminium. But the truth is, most of the time, these plastic liners can’t completely protect the food against aluminium since can leak aluminium when heated and while they are sealed, they will contaminate the food.


Also, an extensive amount of sodium (salt) is used to keep the preservatives found in canned food from rotting so that it can keep the food from rotting. These preservatives are not drastically harmful towards healthy people, but they are harmful to pregnant women, children, babies, elderly, or anyone that has a chronic disease.



The truth is that these can foods like pinto beans, tuna, fruit juice, or vegetables could put your health at risk. Instead of canned foods, go for foods stored in glass jars. Do not consume fruits, vegetables, soups, or grains in cans, you can simply buy the fresh ones.

Diseases caused by consuming canned foods

Cardiovascular disease (heart disease)
Kidney disease
Breast cancer
Obesity
Diabetes
Reproductive problems
Botulism-is a rare, but serious illness caused by Clostridium botulinum. The germ is found in soil and can survive, grow, and produce toxin in a sealed canned food. This toxin can affect your nerves, paralyze you and even cause death. A small taste of food containing this toxin can be deadly.
Skin and eye irritation
Nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea
Brain tumors
Asthma
Gastrointestinal problems
Adverse pregnancy outcomes, etc.

Avoid these canned foods

Canned fruits and fruit juice
Canned vegetables and vegetable juice
Canned drinks
Canned soups
Canned fishes (like sardines, geisha etc.)
Pinto beans or canned baked beans
Corn beef
Canned sweet corn
Canned grains
Canned tomato sauce, etc.

Any food stored in cans should be avoided as it causes a lot of harm to your health. You can go for natural foods like;

Natural fruits and vegetables
Natural fruit juices and vegetable juice
Fresh fish
Kidney beans or cowpea
A well-cooked soup
Whole grains
Well-cooked tomato sauce
Natural drinks like zobo, kunu aya, almond milk, kunu drink, etc
Nuts like cashew, walnut, groundnut, or any other natural nuts

There are a whole lot of natural foods you can consume. Consuming these natural foods is the best as it contains the nutrients you need. It is free from chemicals and other harmful substances that are used in processing and preservation of foods. Always have a nice combination of these natural foods in order to meet nutritional needs.

they are good, but avoid the ones that have been kept under the sun. they should be kept at cool temperature - just like pure water sold under the sun, it's not really healthy.

What about GM foods? The attempt to over-indulge for quick results is our main challenge. Too many people who should be farming are busy offering other less important and needless services. This is bound to create shortages.

As a toxicologist, this write-up is mostly false for the following reasons:

ogedanny:

This chemical (BPA) kills rats in laboratories even at smaller portions. This chemical causes hormone imbalances and a wide variety of health issues. You can try glass jars instead of cans for the storing of food.

1. It is highly unlikely that any company uses bisphenol A anymore in food cans as a result of the negative public perception.

2. It is not true that BPA is "known to cause breast cancer, reproductive problems, heart disease and other chronic health problems". This is emotions, dressed up as facts. Here are the facts - http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/press/news/150121

3. BPA has not been reported to kill rats in the lab. However, anything in excess will kill any organism. Rats will die if you load them up with too much water.

This betrays a fundamental lack of understanding of how cans are made. Cans typically consist of at least two surfaces - there is the metal can itself, which may be made of aluminum, and then lined with a coating (often epoxy but also sometimes polyethylene/polypropylene). The coating is what contacts your food in the can, not aluminum.

The bottomline - canned foods are safe, if not safer than fresh foods.
