15. Refined White Flour
Odds are that you haven’t really heard much about refined white2 flour, or know why it’s something to avoid.
That’s because the food industry has picked the name “refined white flour” to describe what should really be called “bleached flour”.
That’s right, after bleaching the flour studies have found that traces of the chemicals still remain in it.
The more highly processed the flour is, the higher the carbohydrate content is as well.
This alone isn’t too bad, however consider the fact that a diet high in carbs messes with your blood sugar levels and increases insulin production, which is a favorite food source for cancer cells.
