Another good reason to avoid processed food?
A lack of magnesium.
It’s lost in the processes used in refining.
A diet low in magnesium has been linked to asthma and other respiratory ailments. One recent study found that four out of ten asthma sufferers had a magnesium deficient diet.
To get more magnesium in your diet, eat more leaf green vegetables, beans, and prunes, and of course, cut back on processed foodstuffs.
