Tune into the news on any night, and it will tell you that there's a new product that could be causing cancer. At this point, a bite of anything, or even breathing the air, might be enough to damage your cells, according to these programs, at least. While it's good that they're doing what they can to spread the news, these programs often fearmonger, causing people to turn away from their favourite foods or activities, simply because 'they're no longer healthy.' 

But, at Jomeis Fine Foods, we're here to debunk these so-called myths by telling you what you REALLY should be avoiding. 

Some of them include: 

Body Products 

Here's the sitch. Soap, moisturises and facial creams are a great way to stay hygienic and keep a clean appearance. They also have some fantastic anti-aging properties. But, do you know what is in the products you are using? 

Harmful chemicals in products can seep into the skin, causing cell damage beyond repair. Not only this, many products use a combination of chemicals that can worsen your skin if you stop using the products. For many, this can contribute to scabbing, rashes and painful skin conditions. 

Always read the labels on the products you use to guarantee they are natural and won't cause harm to the skin. When in doubt, natural products, like honey, are also a good solution due to their antioxidising qualities. 


The team at Jomeis Fine Foods know that having a social drink can be an important part of life for many people. Though, unfortunately, even a sip of alcohol can damage the cells significantly. 

This shouldn't mean you don't get to have a drink when you go out with your friends. However, it does mean that drinking in moderation is critical to guarantee that your body has time to repair. So, try to limit the benders, excessive drinking and the blackouts. This is when your social events can become harmful to the body. 

Fast Food 

We love a burger as much as the next person. But the preservatives, oils and fats in fast food, when eaten too much, can contribute to heightened cholesterol and an increased chance of heart problems. The breaking down of the body can eventually lead to an increased chance of cancer and many diseases, including heart disease, liver disease and kidney disease. 

It does this as highly processed foods are known to contribute to oxidative stress and inflammation. When the body is under stress, it can't heal, which is required to keep your cells healthy and thriving. 

Refined Sugar

Like fast food, sugar is nice to have in moderation. But, too much of it can cause cell damage that can have negative repercussions on the body. As well as expanding the waistband and improving the chances of type 2 diabetes, too much sugar can cause brain inflammation and can limit your body's ability to achieve a deep sleep, which is where your body does most of its healing. 

Sugary drinks, for example, have a high fructose content, which can be toxic and lethal in high doses. Try opting for naturally sweet products, such as the Jomeis Fine Foods Nutritional Lattes, if you are craving something sweet but don't want the negative repercussions. 

Poor Air Quality 

Unfortunately, we don't always have control over the air quality where we live. Polluted cities, for example, mean we may be exposed to thousands of chemicals and toxins each day. With this in mind, we must make a conscious decision, where possible, to improve air quality. This can include avoiding the use of cell-destroying pesticides, fertilizers or cleaning products. 

Always reading up on the products you are using, or using a mask when harmful substances are unavoidable, can prevent your airways from becoming polluted.
