Silent killers in your kitchen that may be secretly ruining your health


01 Sugar

A jar full of white, crystals of sugar is found in almost all kitchen. This sweet sugar sneaks in spoonfuls into a tea, coffee, milkshakes, and other recipes. However, taking too much added sugar can lead to higher blood pressure, inflammation, weight gain, diabetes, and fatty liver disease. Further, all of these conditions improve your risk of stroke and heart disease.

02 Refined flour

Refined flour, even called as maida, can be present in your kitchen in its powdery form, along with being available in the cookies, cakes, cereal, bread, and pasta in your kitchen. Excessive refined flour consumption can be linked to weight gain, metabolic troubles , cardiovascular disease, and even cancer. What’s more, the refining process also directs to a substantial loss of dietary fiber, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and vitamin E.

03 Salt

Too much salt improves the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke. As per  the World Health Organisation, most people consume too much salt—on average 9–12 grams per a day, or around twice the recommended maximum level of intake. Reducing sodium intake could prevent many deaths.

04 Oil 

Is a kadhai full of oil always or all other day on your gas stove? Do people in your house like eating pakoras, fried onion rings, French fries, frozen foods etc.? If the reply to these questions is yes, then you and your family are increasing their dangers of heart attack, stroke, breast/ovarian cancer, diabetes, hypertension, unhealthy weight gain, and joint pain, among others.

 👉 The bottom line

The point is not to stop eating oil or salt or any another food item. Instead, the key is to focus on healthier alternatives and consume these foods only in a limited amounts. For example, replace refined flour with other types of healthier and fiber-rich flours such as ragi or whole wheat. Instead of sugar, choose for jaggery. These little changes can go a long way in increasing your health also  the health of your family members.
