Cooking UtensilsNutrition is essential for our health and like eating habits that have a negative impact on our metabolism; there are dangerous cooking habits of which not all people are aware.

Poor hygiene is one of the most dangerous cooking habits, so washing your hands, utensils and ingredients used for cooking is absolutely necessary whether your are cooking at home or outdoors where you don’t have the same conditions as in your kitchen.

Another dangerous cooking habit it’s the use of knives, spoons, forks or other cooking utensils made of aluminum because aluminum has an important role when it comes to the development of Alzheimer’s. Also avoid canned drinks or foods and don’t store food in aluminum utensil for a long period.

If you use to warm food in the microwave use only containers designed for this type of oven because other materials could suffer changes at high temperature and alter food’s chemical composition. Also warming up food rapidly favors the conversion of fats in the food in components dangerous for your health. Some fats can become dangerous if heated or cooked at high temperatures.

Food grilled on open-flame increases the risk of developing cancer if it’s burnt, so don’t place it too close to the flame. If it’s charred don’t eat it.

If you want to live a healthy, long life take note of the dangerous cooking habits exposed above and keep in mind that all the problems derived from them are not immediate. They are long term problems.
