Are there foods that are bad for the immune system?

• Processed foods may be problematic for your immune function. Toxic metals such as cadmium, lead and mercury are immunosuppressive.

• Food additives can also have untoward effects on the nutrient content of the food. Some preservatives can negatively effect the gastrointestinal lining.

•Trans fats

Studies have shown that consumption of trans fats are pro inflammatory, leading to chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes.

2% increase in energy intake from trans fats was associated with a 25% increased risk of CVD and 31% increase in CVD mortality.
