8. Instant Noodles
Ramen noodles are the traditional go-to food of college students across the country, but they don’t exactly make for a healthy meal. They are loaded with calories while provide very few nutrients and are over-the-top high in sodium. Sodium diets are linked to increased blood pressure, which in turn is a major risk factor for heart attacks and strokes. Consumption of these noodles have been linked to increased cholesterol and other health problems as well.
9. White Bread
Who doesn’t remember Wonder Bread sandwiches in their packed lunch every day when they were in school? Sadly, white bread, too, has been exposed for the danger that it is. Because the grain white bread is made from has been stripped of its germ and bran, it has almost no nutrients on its own – these have to be added artificially! It has also been linked to issues like high blood sugar, increased weight and an increased chance for developing diabetes.
