    Two main enemies

    Russian nutritionist Irina Lizún has that there are two main enemies of the immune system. The first is sugar, whose “excessive consumption can modify the microbiota, responsible for coordinating the body’s immune reactions,” says the specialist.

    The second element that negatively affects the immune system is trans fats: “Trans fats appear, for example, when foods are fried in used oil several times or when something similar to animal fats is produced from vegetable oils”, clarifies the expert, referring to margarines.
