We’re all witnesses of the many diseases and illnesses of the modern society.
One of the worst is cancer. However, according to health experts and researchers, cancer probably won’t attack our body, if we take good care of ourselves.
What Are You Eating?
How can we take care of ourselves if not through what we put in ourselves?
Our body is not programmed to kill us but to fight any disease or illness that strikes us. However, to do it properly, we have to help it through our diet. What we eat is what we become. And if we eat junk, we become junk.
Same goes for cancer causing foods. If we consume these products, it’s likely we gain cancer in future.
Everyday Foods You Need to Avoid
Keep reading and start avoiding these cancer causing foods you probably consume every day. You will be surprised by the list we made.
Bread contains potassium bromate, a chemical that’s potential human carcinogen, according to many health experts and organizations
According to recent researches, manufacturers use potassium bromate, a chemical that whitens and adds bulk to grain based products and bread. The additive has an influence on our nervous-system and may cause disorders.
Potassium bromate is identified as a potential human carcinogen by many health experts and organizations. For the same reason, the European Union, Brazil, Canada and the United Kingdom banned the use of potassium bromate.
Refined sugars are the main food for tumors and cancer cells
Just like bread, refined sugars is something we consume on a daily basis. However, we should stop because according to health experts and researchers, tumors feed and increase on sugars. This was first discovered in 1931 by Otto Warburg, a Nobel laureate in medicine. He figured out that to proliferate, cancer cells feed on fructose-rich sweeteners. This leads to the conclusion that refined sugars are definitely bad for our health and may conceive or increase a tumor.
Meat contains sodium nitrates and other chemicals that make it cancerogenic when exposed to high temperatures or conditions of high acidity.
As many assumed, meat is one of cancer causing foods that some of us consume daily. Hot dogs, pimento loaf, bacon, sausages, prosciutto, bologna and many other types of meat contain sodium nitrates. Sodium nitrates and many other chemicals are used to give the meat a more appealing and fresh appearance.
However, due to those chemicals, meat can become carcinogenic when exposed to conditions of high acidity or high temperatures. Most dangerous are the smoked meats as the meat picks up tar during the smoking process. For those of you who aren’t familiar with ‘tar’, it’s a deadly ingredient in cigarettes.
Due to high level of acidity, tomatoes cause a dangerous chemical to leach from the can into the food.
The lining of canned foods, including tomatoes are made with bisphenol-A or BPA, a chemical increasing the risk of cancer. This chemical is multitasking because it increases the risk of prostate and breast cancer, metabolic disorders, early puberty, and infertility.
However, that’s not all, because it also causes type-2 diabetes, according to research made by the Breast Cancer Fund. Canned tomatoes are especially dangerous because of their high levels of acidity. Acidity causes BPA to leach from the lining of the can into the food. As unbelievable as it sounds, it’s true.
