1. Canned Soup

Avoid Canned Soup

Canned soup is loaded with sodium (a mineral found in salt), making it another food you may want to avoid. Too much sodium in the bloodstream can cause high blood pressure. Chronic high blood pressure could lead to heart disease or stroke. 

Humans need sodium to survive, but most don’t need very much. Plus, a healthy body requires a balance between sodium and potassium. An ideal ratio of sodium to potassium intake would be 1:3, or three times as much potassium as sodium. 

Consider opting for low-sodium canned soup instead. Even better, make your own soup at home.
