Most of us have either a "sweet tooth" or we enjoy munching on those salty snacks like chips and fries.

When we devour these tasty treats most of us typically take a calculated risk on how fat they will make us. So it's a constant game of how much can I get away with without getting too fat, or how much fat am I comfortable holding in my body so I continue eating processed foods. But, that's just one of the risks that we should be assessing when consuming processed foods. Research shows that processed foods are linked to depression and cancer too.

Because of the need for an extended shelf life, processed foods are full of additives and preservatives which make them less nutrient dense. So we just get empty calories without any good things to help our bodies fight off disease and function optimally. Things like trans fats, nitrites, food coloring agents, salt, and sugar comprise processed foods and our bodies just aren't made to digest and use these for anything beneficial. They end up becoming breeding grounds for cancer cells in our bodies, making us more susceptible to disease.

It's a startling statistic that Americans eat 31% more processed foods than fresh foods. That's why there is such out of control obesity, depression and mental illness, and cancer cases.

So commit to eating less cakes, cookies, chips, pretzels etc., and focus on eating more natural foods like fruits, vegetables, nuts, lean meat, and whole grains and you'll quite possibly be thinner, happier, and cancer free!
