Bread is carbohydrate dense.
Whenever you eat bread, the carbohydrates breaks down into glucose that gets processed in the body.
In doing so, bread raises your blood glucose levels; it is a high glycemic food.
Eating foods with a high glycemic index is linked to a high risk of diseases like diabetes.
Bread also contains plenty of gluten. People react negatively to gluten in a variety of ways such as celiac disease, which is an autoimmune dysfunction.
Ingredients and additives that should be avoided are contained in grocery store bought bread. These include azodicarbonamide, high-fructose corn syrup, and phytic acid.

This infographic provides a detailed overview of how bread can affect your health. The information in this infographic is particularly useful if you have a gluten-sensitivity, such as celiac disease. While there is a lot of useful information here, however, the infographic functions more like an illustrated article than a piece of visual communication. Visualizing certain areas, like giving the "Symptoms" section more weight and adding a little visual for each symptom, could be an effective and worthwhile solution. When you are designing, don't allow your message to become burdened by text. You want minimal text and maximum visuals, in order to make sure readers take home the meaning. The information here is worth sharing, and allowing the piece to speak more visually could benefit it's current state. As it stands, we'd give this a D.
