Foods That May Weaken Your Immune System

We all eat foods we shouldn’t, but some of them might be wreaking havoc on our body’s ability to fight off bacteria and viruses, which is very important as we navigate life with the coronavirus.  Paragon Orthopedics Center has blogged about foods you should eat, but please consider those you might want to eat less of, or eliminate altogether.  Healthline.com recently reviewed ten foods to avoid because of their effects on our immune systems:

-salty foods, foods with added sugars, processed/charred foods, fried foods, foods high in Omega-6 fats, foods high in additives, highly refined carbs, artificially sweetened foods, fast food, and certain high fat foods.

You could look at that list and know some are bad for you, but the article will give you details about why these can be so detrimental to your immune health.  Whether they impair your immune response or promote inflammation, educate yourself and others to make good food choices and keep your body in top shape for a long, high-quality life.
