We’ve all heard the rules about shopping around the perimeter of the store for fresh foods, but today’s world often dictates an occasional shortcut down those middle aisles. Here’s a brief summary of the good, the bad and the ugly to watch out for when consuming processed foods.

FOODS: 
The Faster It Spoils, The Healthier It Is - The Toxic Preservation of Food Is Killing Us... The food industry has created an era of convenience for consumers through packaged, preserved, emulsified, pasteurized, sterilized, irradiated and chemically altered foods. It's not an exact science, but generally speaking the faster a food spoils, the higher the nutrient density it contains. Living foods will perish within days to weeks while processed foods can last months or even years due to the removal of all microorganisms, enzymes, oxygen, and moisture in food.

Foods such as packaged chips, crackers, wheat products containing harmful oils, soy, corn, artificial sweeteners, sugars, salts, as most other junk food, maintain the slowest spoil rates while offering little if any nutritional value along with the highest risk in terms of promoting disease. These are the money makers for the food and disease industries.

On the other hand, foods with the highest nutrient density such as s…
