#FOOD: The WORST FOODS for your HEALTH are on this list!

Ever read a food label in the store and find that item you thought was healthy is anything but? Some foods that are marketed as “low-fat” or “no sugar added” can still contain a ton of sweeteners, calories, chemicals and sodium, making it tough to decipher what’s actually good for us. And that’s why researchers at Tufts University created The Food Compass, a nutrient ranking system.

It ranks foods from the absolute best to absolute worst for your health on a scale of one to 100. More than 8-thousand foods were evaluated on “54 attributes across 9 health-relevant domains: nutrient ratios, vitamins, minerals, food ingredients, additives, processing, specific lipids, fiber and protein, and phytochemicals,” according to the report.

Foods on the absolute best side include:

●Raw fruits and vegetables

●Leafy greens

●Whole grains

●Nuts, seeds, beans and lentils

●Fish, especially halibut and tuna

●And plain yogurt.

And on the flip side, the foods that are considered the worst for your health include:

●White bread products

●Soda and energy drinks

●Processed meats

●Fat-free dressings

●“Light” butter

●Cakes and pastries
