People nowadays have a lot of habits that they think are healthy but actually are very harmful to them. Today we are going to share some of the bad habits that we think are very healthy but actually, aren’t. Let’s get started.
Take Extra Vitamins
Researchers say that the consumption of bio-additives and multivitamins doesn’t increase your memory or work efficiency, in fact, they affect your body negatively. A group of researchers in the United States of America conducted a clinical test to check the impact of bio-additives. The test included more than 450,000 participants and in the conclusion, they found that the participants without bio-additives were more healthy compared to the others. In fact, the participants whom they induced bio-additives showed negative growth.
Using Non-Alcoholic Antibacterial Gel
Anti-bacterial gel undoubtedly helps us get rid of various kinds of germs and bacteria, but it should contain more than 60% of alcohol. If the hand wash or gel contains less than 60% of alcohol, it won’t work. However, it will be better for the environment if we use soap to wash our hands instead of using an alcohol-containing anti-bacterial gel. But still, if you still want to use an antibacterial gel, I will recommend you to buy one with 60% or more alcohol.
Avoid Using MSG
MSG stands for Monosodium Glutamate that is basically used in noodles and other edibles. Well, research indicates that MSG is responsible for some of the unpleasant symptoms, including nausea and headaches. But it happens only when you consume something that has MSG in an excessive amount. However, if you consume it normally, then you won’t face any problems or symptoms.
Eliminating Toxins by Using Detox Diet
The detox diet is quite popular nowadays as it helps the body remove or eliminate toxins completely. However, research shows that our body can detoxify itself if the kidneys and liver get proper nutrition in order to work properly. On the other hand, if your kidneys and liver don’t function properly due to lack of nutrition, then you will still have a higher chance of getting diseased, even if you are having a detox diet.
Consumption of Organic Products
There is no compulsion of marking an organic product in many countries as governments of these countries haven’t made it a legal requirement. So if you see ‘biology’ or ‘eco’ written on any product, don’t consider it organic. Companies do it basically to increase their sales. So be aware of it.
Avoid Using Microwave Oven
Heating food using a microwave destroys essential substances in food, so you should avoid doing it.
These were some of the harmful habits that you must break. According to science, these seemingly good habits are unhealthy.
