Many Christmas lights (especially the cheap ones) are made of PVC and processed plastic. They contain harmful chemicals that can disrupt the endocrine system and cause memory impairment.

We all know eating a lot of sugar is bad for our health. This is why people often choose artificial sweeteners which are also used in the production of “healthy” food. When in fact, studies show that eating too many artificial sweeteners leads to weight gain, metabolism problems, cardiovascular diseases, and type II diabetes.

Solution: If you really like sweet foods, eat fruit instead of dessert.
