If You’re Over 40, Avoid These Foods and Beverages

6. Doughnuts
While we’re on the topic of bread, why not include doughnuts on the list? After all, even though, they are bread-like, these round, glazed, frosted and even sugar-filled pastries should be in a category all their own.

What composes a doughnut is sugar, white flour and unhealthy trans fats, which has been linked several times over to heart disease. Even worse is that these round desserts that have unfortunately been coined a breakfast food may contain acrylamide, which, a carcinogen that could lead to lung cancer.

Doughnuts are quite possibly the worst way to start your day, and will not add healthy years to your already long-lived life.
