eggs always get a bad wrap unfairly

The words in bold are the categories. Eggs aren't bad (depending on if you get the right kind or not). It's the fake eggs that are in the "trouble foods" category. If you click on the link at the bottom of the post you will see the extraordinary, average, trouble, and dirty dozen.

This is probably one of the best general to-avoid lists I've seen ever seen on the board.

Shellfish do amazing things for my skin, personally. =o

Shellfish are pretty much the pollution & filth sucker uppers of the ocean. Can you imagine eating a vacuum cleaner bag? No wonder so many people react badly to shellfish... when there are oil spills, well... things get worse.

stay away from school cafeteria food!

You got that right! When they say "pizza" you could be eating anything...

Pork is one of the worst things I can eat. Can anyone explain why though?

I have heard lots of bad things about it. There was a really good article I read a while ago & I'll see if I can find it to post on here...

I find it interesting that prawns aren't listed under shellfish? I presume they are included in the shellfish category?

The "dirty dozen" seems to be the acne sufferer's big no-no!

Great link, thanks :clap:

ok thank you!

honestly, I at pork for dinner at at 3am I couldn't sleep and had horrici cysts!

Here is the article:

Pig’s bodies contain many toxins, worms and latent diseases. Although some of these infestations are harbored in other animals, modern veterinarians say that pigs are far more predisposed to these illnesses than other animals. This could be because pigs like to scavenge and will eat any kind of food, including dead insects, worms, rotting carcasses, excreta (including their own), garbage, and other pigs.

Influenza (flu) is one of the most famous illnesses which pigs share with humans. This illness is harbored in the lungs of pigs during the summer months and tends to affect pigs and humans in cooler months. Sausage contains bits of pigs' lungs, so those who ear pork sausage tend to suffer more during epidemics of influenza.

Pig meat also contains excessive quantities of histamine and imidazole compounds, which can lead to itching and inflammation; growth hormone, which promotes inflammation and growth; sulphur-containing mesenchymal mucus, which leads to swelling and deposits of mucus in tendons and cartilage, resulting in arthritis, rheumatism, etc. Sulphur helps cause firm human tendons and ligaments to be replaces by the pig's soft mesenchymal tissues, and degeneration of human cartilage. Eating pork can also lead to gallstones and obesity, probably due to its high cholesterol and saturated fat content. The pig is the main carrier of the taenia solium worm, which is found in its flesh. These tapeworms are found in human intestines with greater frequency in nations where pigs are eaten. This type of tapeworm can pass through the intestines and affect many other organs, and is incurable once it reaches beyond a certain stage.

One in six people in the US and Canada has trichinosis from eating trichina worms which are found in pork. Many people have no symptoms to warn them of this, and when they do, they resemble symptoms of many other illnesses. These worms are not noticed during meat inspections, nor are they killed by salting or smoking. Few people cook the meat long enough to kill the trichinae. The rat (another scavenger) also harbors this disease.

There are dozens of other worms, germs, diseases and bacteria which are commonly found in pigs, many of which are specific to the pig, or found in greater frequency in pigs.

This is a great list for people in need. I knew about all the foods mentioned here, there's a forum that talks about why pork is bad that I was reading a few weeks ago. I forget the name of it or even how I found it. Apparently it's a "dirty meat". I can agree with that!

I wanted to mention another thing I learned from a chinese woman who had acne all her life and pretty much knows her stuff. COLD or frozen items consumed will weaken all of your body organs especially the kidneys and the spleen, and congest your lungs. Signs of a weakened spleen will include dry lips or frequent thirst. When you drink water, make sure it is at least room temp or warmer. Also eliminating all liver and kidney weakening foods such as white flour (we all know), white sugar, caffeine, chocolate, deep fried foods, all citrus fruits, tomato, banana, cold drinks and foods which chill the liver and kidneys. Interesting!

I'll find the website and post it if anyone's interested.
