For a better overall health we have listed few types of foods to reduce. Minimising these foods will reduce diseases that affect your blood flow. Below are the foods that are recommended for you to eat but have health concerns if consumed too much.

Dairy Products:

Dairy comprises around 12% of the daily caloric intake for the average human. Yet the idea most of us have of healthy, grass-feeding cows is a myth. Foods such as cheese are high in saturated fats. This causes arterial blockage. The blockage in turn affects blood flow to the brain, the heart and other parts of the body. Also consider the fact that most cows are fed on grain, an unnatural source of food for cows. They are fed antibiotics to keep from getting sick. The dairy products we eat and drink contain the residue of the antibiotics. The best thing you can do for your overall health is to substitute dairy milk for healthier alternatives such as almond or coconut milk.

Meat, Fish and Poultry:

When thinking about your vital organs, you have to think about your heart. Good heart health will improve your overall health more especially if you are an active individual who is health conscious. Meat-heavy diets, high in animal fats, are responsible for arterial damage which causes heart disease and strokes.

Try switching your red meat to grass-fed red meat as they contain healthier fats. For example, heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, as well as conjugated linoleic acid. Conjugated linleic acid reduces heart disease and cancer risks. Also try and supplement protein intake through chicken, turkey and fish. Fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids that are great for your heart.

Avoid large predatory fish such as tuna, cod and haddock. These fish have higher levels of pollution as they are higher up in the food chain. Smaller oily fish such as sardines, mackerel, and trout have more omega three and less mercury pollution.

Fried Food

Fried foods are bad because of the oil that is used for frying. Restaurants tend to use partially hydronated oils that are high in trans-fat. The oil is reheated over and over to keep the costs down. That way the fried food becomes some of the unhealthiest foods for your heart. Consequently and one of the biggest causes of many diseases including heart disease, cancer or diabetes. Stay away from fried foods in restaurants or limit your intake of them. When you fry foods at home make sure to use healthy cooking oils such as extra virgin coconut oil or avocado oil. Both are rich in goodness, with a high smoke point that retains most of its nutrients during frying.


Try to avoid soy, for one simple reason- it can have an oestrogenic effect on your body. If you’re not sure what this, oestrogen is a female hormone that men have smaller amounts of. In order to achieve good health, a healthy balance between oestrogen and testosterone (the male counterpart to oestrogen) must be maintained. There is an exception, however. Naturally fermented soy, the one you can find in soy sauce, can be used without fear. However, one caution is that many industrial produced soy sauces are not naturally fermented. In addition quite a few do not even contain soy as their main ingredient, but are based on treacle. So, check carefully. Make sure that whatever you buy in the way of the soy sauce is actually made from genuinely naturally fermented soy.

Canned or plastic food:

Bisphenol-A (BPA) is a widely produced chemical. Most common consumer products contain BPA. This includes plastic containers, water bottles, and canned foods which all contain BPA. At the molecular level BPA mimics oestrogen. This causes your body to react to it as if there is an excess of oestrogen in your body. And too much oestrogen in the male body causes lots of unhealthy problems. It would of course be impossible to completely avoid exposure to casual toxins like BPA. But there are a few simple steps you can take to reduce its impact. Buy fresh food and don’t microwave your lunch or dinner in plastic containers. Avoid putting them in the dishwasher, and check the bottles you buy are “BPA-free”.


In conclusion we have listed types of foods to reduce for better health. This is not to say that you can not consume these foods but rather that limiting their intake is important.
