If used wisely, almost all vegetables are good for our healthy diet and lifestyle. The problem is that almost 90 % of people don’t eat the vegetables like they should.

Most people, if they are on a diet, eat the same foods over and over again, especially during times of stress, that leads to an immune system reaction and causes many health issues like allergies and intolerance on food.

Also what is more important, if you eat a ‘healthy’ vegetables that contain a high amount of toxins, will we eat a really healthy food or it will do more harm than help? These are the main vegetables that can be really bad:

1. Kale

The most popular vegetable in the world today is kale that contains all important nutrients. In kale, we may find plenty of Vitamin K, magnesium, antioxidants, potassium and calcium. With a variety of benefits, helping in preventing cancer and anti-inflammatory benefits, kale has become a “super food”. But it is not a good idea to eat too much kale because it can cause hypothyroidism, a health issue when a thyroid gland stops producing thyroid hormone, in the amount it supposed to. There is a trick to make that risk lower, you can just cook it before eating.

2. Broccoli

This vegetable can lower the cancer risk and can lower the cholesterol. But it also contains components that are harmful so that it must be used with caution. Especially for those people who use medications for blood thinning, since it may interfere with the medications, consuming of this vegetable should be avoided because it can cause even a stroke. Also eating it daily can lead to a kidney stone. And the another important thing is to not to cock like all vegetables because it loses very fast the right level of nutrition.

3. Cabbage

If eaten raw and organic it really can help but there is one big ‘danger’ we can say about a healthy ‘kale soup’ diet that promises people to lose about 10 pounds in 7 days just by eating that soup. The lack of food and taste variety on any weight loss diet usually leads to people falling off the wagon way before the finish line. Also important is that this diet soup cannot provide us vitamins, minerals, and proteins that we need on a daily basis.

4. Potatoes

The potatoes contain starch, because of which many people don’t put them in ‘good carbohydrates’ category. The carbs in potatoes are not a good choice for anyone who is diabetic, even though the people with no health problems like diabetes can consume them. Also, studies proved that potatoes are linked to weight gain.

This vegetable contains a poison (glycoalkaloid ), so when the potato turns green is the sign of poison. Growing below the ground this plant absorb all poisons, insecticides, herbicides, pesticides, and that are sprayed above and come below the ground. So when you eat potatoes, choose only eat organic potatoes because organic production does not allow the use of all of these toxic chemicals.
