Foods to Avoid for Gout - Living a Healthy Life to Avoid Painful Gout Attacks
Gout is a type of arthritis that affects the joints, tendons, and other bodily tissues. Even as the medical condition is more common amongst men over 30, it is also known to develop in women who are post-menopausal or hypertensive. Several risks factors increase the chances of developing gout; therefore living a healthier life-style is crucial. Consequently, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Disease have recommended a variety of foods to avoid for gout. Gout is the result of high concentration of uric acid in the bloodstream or hyperuricemia. The high levels of uric acid form hard crystals or urates in the joints causing pain and inflammation.

Additionally, the body only needs a limited supply of glucose to fuel its cells. Therefore, once you’ve reach...
8 Foods To Avoid to Stay Healthy (Part 2)
In Part 1, I shared the first 4 foods I recommend people avoid for optimal health. The remaining 4 foods you should stay clear of are the following: 5. Sodas Soft drinks, which contain primarily high fructose corn syrup, are possibly the #1 source of calories in the United States. This means that soda is not only dangerous for your health for the reasons connected to HFCS (see Part 1), but it also has its own set of health risks associated with excessive sugar consumption. High blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, heart disease, premature aging, weight gain, diabetes, tooth decay, depression, digestive problems, osteoporosis, eczema and kidney disease have all been linked to high sugar diets.  Many people believe that the harmful effects are eliminated with diet sodas. However, the dangers associated with sugar substitutes such as aspartame are even more debilitating. Overconsumption of aspartame has been linked to a wide-range of symptoms and serious health cond...
