Potato Chips: This?snack is often fried in oils that block?healthy mood-enhancing, brain-building acids.? Frying potatoes also creates the carcinogen acrylamide.

Ham: Conventional hams come from pigs injected with antibiotics, sugar, salt, fillers and preservatives that can cause migraines, swollen ankles, and depression.
