Beware! Beef Liver, Alcohol; 6 Foods That Are Slowly Killing Your Bones
Some of the foods we eat are slowly doing harm to our body, including our bones. Some of these foods contain some unhealthy substance which weakens our bones. 6 of the foods that we should watch how we eat are explained below;
Beef liver happens to be the greatest source of animal-derived vitamin A, also known as retinol. And while vitamin A can clear up acne, boost eye health, and even amp up your immunity, too much of it can wreak havoc on your bones. “High intakes of beef liver—greater than three ounces—could stimulate osteoclast activity or bone breakdown,” explains Anita Mirchandani, MS, RD, CDN and spokesperson for the New York State Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Soft drinks also slowly kills our bones. Soft drinks are packed with phosphoric acid, which causes an increase in the blood’s acidity levels. As a result, the body pulls calcium out of our bones in order to bring the acidity levels back to normal. Also, people who drink soda (including diet sodas!) are more likely to have a “soda belly,” which is similar to a beer belly.
