Foods That Cause Cancer, Avoid Them To Stay Safe From Cancer

Popcorns cooked by microwave

Popcorns cooked by microwave not only cause infertility but also liver and pancreatic cancers. The U.S Environmental Proteccontaminated(EPA) recognises the perfiluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in microwave popcorn bag lining as "likely "carcinogenic. Other several independent studies have linked the chemical to cause Cancer tumors. Similarly, the diacetyl chemical used in popcorn itself is linked to causing both lung damage and cancer.

Processed meats

Processed meats contain chemical preservatives that make them appear fresh and appealing,but that can also cause Cancer. Both sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite have been linked to significantly increase the risk of colon and other forms of cancer, so be sure to choose only uncured meat products made without sodium nitrate and sodium nitrite.

Refined sugars

Refined sugars tend to rapidly spike insulin levels and feed the growth of cancer cells. Fructose-rich sweeteners like high fructose, corn syrup (HFCS) are particularly offensive as cancer cells have been shown to quickly and easily metabolise them in order to proliferate.

German biochemist named Otto Warburg observed that cancer cells often rely on sugar to fuel their profolic growth. This refined sugars are used in juices, cakes,sodas and sauces.

Hydrogenated oils

Hydrogenated oils alter the structure and flexibility of cell membranes throughout the body. This might lead to a host debilitating diseases such as cancer. They are commonly used to preserve processed foods and keep them shelf-stable.

Genetically modified organisms (GMOs)

GMOs and chemicals used to grow them have been shown to cause rapid tumor growth. GMOs can be found in most food derivatives made from convectional soybeans, corns and canola.

Farmed salmon

Farmed salmon lack vitamin D.They are also contaminated with carcinogenic chemicals, PCBs(poly chlorinated biphenyls), pesticides and antibiotics.
