7 Foods That Aren’t As Healthy As You Think

There’s a long list of foods that many people believe are “good for you” thanks to the anti-fat crusade. Here are seven foods you’ve probably heard are healthy, but shouldn’t be eaten in excess.

1. Vegetable oils. These include soybean, corn, peanut, safflower and sunflower, because they produce toxic oxidation products when heated, especially over long periods of time. Vegetable oils are relatively recent additions to the human diet: only since the 1950s have we been eating them in significant amounts. And there’s no evidence to show that they cause heart disease.

2. Skim milk, because you need the fat to digest the vitamins in milk. Fat soluble vitamins A, D, K and E can only be absorbed when accompanied by fat it’s also hard to absorb these vitamins in vegetables if eaten without fat.
