Therefore, if you have leftovers, you better freeze them instead of keeping them in the fridge.

If kept at a room temperature, beets, celery, lettuce, and spinach accumulate nitrates, which might lead to a rare blood disorder in children known as methemoglobinemia.

Vegetable oil

Studies have found that reheated foods which have been cooked in vegetable oils can lead to a higher risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease.

Namely, the reheating of polyunsaturated oils which have linoleic acid (canola, corn oil, sunflower oil) releases HNE (4-hydroxy- trans-2-nonenal) which is a toxin from the fatty acids that lead to health issues, including liver problems, heart disease, some types of cancer, Huntington’s, and Alzheimer’s.
