It is sad but true that many of the best tasting foods are the worst for us. Because they are artificially made to increase the flavours that we naturally crave – sugar and salt – to levels that you have not found in nature. In other cases, the growth or packaging processes cut corners and threaten the health of consumers.
Don’t let the world’s big food producers play around with the safety of your family and yours! In this article we are going to give you a list of 10 cancer-causing foods to avoid, or at least moderately consumed.
1. Microwave Popcorn
Generally speaking Popcorn is a relatively healthy snack, so it’s really bad that the most convenient way to clutter it actually makes it very unhealthy. The reason is that those microwave bags are lined with a chemical called albirfloroktanik acid (PFOA).
Many studies have shown that PFOA consumption can cause cancers of the bladder, liver, kidneys,, pancreas and testicles.
2. Processed, Smoked and Red Meats
This menu DOES includes things like hot dogs, bacon, steaks, hamburgers, sausages and lunch meats. Processed meats are a big problem because they contain preservatives such as sodium nitrate, which is wonderful to keep the product looking fresh but can cause cancer. Smoked meats are dangerous because it takes on tar during the smoking process!
Studies have shown red meat in general, eaten every day, to increase the risk of cancer by up to 22% which is a very risky thing to eat.
3. Hydrogenated Oils
Vegetable oil looks like something that should be healthy, but the catastrophe is that it cannot be extracted from its source naturally. The chemical extraction process is what makes it hydrogenated, and then the oil and deodorant are painted to make it look palatable to people.
Hydrogenated oils are found in several processed foods to keep them more youthful for a longer period, but in the body they affect the structure of cells and elasticity, which can cause cancer.
Moderate consumption is fine, but it has been proven that a lot of alcohol increases the risk of cancer of the liver, mouth, colon, esophagus, rectum and breast. In fact, alcohol consumption is thought to be the second leading cause of cancer around the world (tobacco use is the first).
Awfully sorry ladies but it seems that the risk will rise after the thorny menopause does not exceed one cup a day.
5. Pickled Foods
Pickled foods are usually treated with a mixture of nitrates, nitrites, salt and vinegar. There may also be artificial colouring added to the collection. While the same vinegar has some healthy qualities, the high level of salt and nitrate/nitrites in pickled foods is really bad for your health. The daily fireplace has been linked to pickled foods with increased risk of rectum, colon and stomach cancer.
6. Hot Drinks
You may feel depressed at this point that many of your favorite foods are on a carcinogenic list, so let’s wrap it up with something easy to avoid. Recent studies have shown that consuming very hot drinks regularly can damage your esophagus and lead to throat cancer.
How hot is the weather? Scientists say about 65 C (149 F), which leads us to wonder astonishingly who ever drink that hot tea?
7. Inorganic Fruits and Vegetables
Traditionally planted fruits are contaminated with very serious pesticides such as atrazine, thiodicarb and organic phosphate. Atrazine is a chemical known to cause serious health and reproductive issues in human body. The European countries law prohibits to use it , but it is still used in a daily basis in the United States.
Alas, laundry products do not remove all chemical residues, so it is best to buy organic whenever you can.
8. Artificial Sweeteners
Specially designed to help people lose weight, these sugar substitutes don’t even do it. They do not control blood sugar, and also keep your body from being able to accurately measure daily calorie intake.
This makes you want more sweets. Finally, chemicals in synthetic localities, especially Asspartan, turn into a deadly poison called DKP in the body. During digestion, DKP releases more cancer-causing chemicals.
9. White Flour
The refining process that makes white flour destroys most of the nutrients found naturally in cereals. And the worse, the mills then whiten the flour by bleaching it with chlorine gas, a chemical that is lethal in large quantities. The finished product has a very high blood sugar level that increases blood glucose levels and insulin.
This condition in the body is thought to feed the cancer cells directly, as tumors thrive on sugars in the bloodstream.
10. Farmed Salmon
Your body needs healthy omega-3 fats in most fish, but farmed salmon is fed by an unnatural diet filled with pesticides, chemicals, antibiotics and other known carcinogens. As a result, salmon’s meat is full of cancer causing (PCBs), carcinogenic dioxins and mercury . Unfortunately, nearly 60% of the salmon in the stores are now being cultivated.
For a safe eating, look for labels that specifically refer to the wild sockeye salmon.
Unhappily, many of these cancer-causing foods are actually ingredients found in a lot of products that we eat daily. It can be overwhelming to think about avoiding them, especially comfort foods that seem to help relieve the stress of everyday life.
But rest assured that it takes only a little time to eat healthy to feel much better, and you’ll probably notice that your body can not even tolerate bad foods anymore.Next Post
