Giving up damaging habits can be difficult. It’s even more difficult to drop those that we normally think of as beneficial to us that in fact can do damage to our bodies.
a list of everyday habits that can cause more harm than good.

1. Drinking Freshly Squeezed Juice

Fresh juice is only good in small quantities. If you have certain illnesses, fresh juice can significantly damage your body. As an example, grape juice is not recommended for those who are overweight or who have diabetes. Fresh juice is also a strong allergen, so you shouldn’t have them to children. If you do give to your children, it’s suggested to consult a doctor beforehand.N

2. Using A Smartphone Before Sleeping

If you’ve been having trouble falling asleep, it may be because the artificial light at night from your cell phone decreases the production of the hormone melatonin that controls sleep and wakefulness. This can result in cancer, depression, heart diseases, obesity, and many more illnesses. Going to bed early may help improve your health!

3. Brushing Your Teeth Right After Eating

Dentists have always suggested that you brush your teeth 30 minutes to one hour after eating. If you brush right after eating, it will push acid deeper and closer to the dentin, which could lead to high sensitivity and could potentially damage your enamel.

4. Using Perfume

Synthetic substances are frequently used to make perfume because they create powerful scents and are cheaper than natural oils. Putting on perfume could cause nausea, drowsiness, and dizziness. It could also irritate your eyes, skin, and nose so it may be better to swap that perfume for essential oils or possibly only apply them in a well-aired room.

5. Wearing Tight Jeans

This may be a huge fashion trend but tight jeans can cause a feeling of discomfort and could lead to issues with your nervous system. It could also reduce the flow of air to your legs which causes itching and tingling, which eventually makes your legs numb up!

6. Preventing Yourself From Sneezing

This is terrible for your health! You may have heard this before, but it’s so common! When you prevent a sneeze, your intracranial pressure increases by a lot, which causes the blood flow to our brains to be disrupted and our blood vessels and nervous tissue are compressed. This often leads to headaches, hearing problems, and damage to vessels.

7. Using Too Much Antibacterial Soap

Some of the bacteria on our skin actually assists us in protecting from harmful bacteria. If you are using an antibacterial soap too often, then this could sterilize your hands, which could potentially allow bacteria into our systems. Dermatologists suggest using antibacterial soap only when you’re cleaning an injury and to only use it once or twice a week.

8. Storing Food In Plastic Containers

Plastic boxes often contain artificial chemicals, like phthalate and bisphenol, that help them maintain their flexibility. If kept for too long, these chemicals can make their way into the stored food. A better solution would be to store food in glass, stainless steel, or ceramic material.
