Fried food
Trans fats are found in French fries and other fried foods such as cookies etc. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says trans fats can increase the risk of heart disease by increasing the body’s bad cholesterol levels. At the same time, trans fatty acids also reduce hormone secretion. So, you should be attention to the amount of the fried food in your daily diet.

Caffeine increases the secretion of certain hormones especially cortisol. It can stimulate adrenal secretion and produce stress hormones. When you take caffeine, these hormones can last up to 18 hours in your blood and cause health problems.

In 2007, a team of researchers studied the effects of hormones on mouses and found that excessive consumption of fructose and glucose was able to shut down genes that control hormone levels. Sugar, soda, sugary drinks and other foods contain a high level of glucose and it’s better to read the nutrition labels carefully to avoid consume too much of them.
