The truth is that many common food items have been scientifically shown to enhance the risk of cancer, and some of them are very significant. The following list depicts the top most unhealthy foods that causes cancer that you should never eat again:
Top cancer causing foods
* Hydrogenated oils
Hydrogenated oils are commonly used in the preservation of processed foods and keep them shelf-stable. But unfortunately , hydrogenated oils distort the flexibility of cell membranes throughout the body, which can result to a host of debilitating diseases such as cancer. Some producers of oil are phasing out the production and use of hydrogenated oils and replacing them with palm oil and other safer subtituite, but trans fats are still widely used in processed foods.
* Processed meats
Processed meat products include lunch meats, bacon, sausage, and hot dogs and majority of these processed meat contain preservatives chemical that make them appear appealing and fresh . Sodium nitrate & sodium nitrite have been linked to enhance the risk of colon and other forms of cancer, so you are advised to choose only uncured meat products made without nitrates, and preferably from grass-fed sources.
* Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs)
It should be noted that there is have no legitimate place of GMO's in any cancer-free diet, especially now that both GMOs and the chemicals used to grow them have been depict to cause rapid growth of tumor. But GMOs are everywhere, including in most food derivatives made from canola , soyabeans and conventional corn. However, you can avoid them by sticking with
locally-grown foods that are produced naturally without biotechnology , certified non GMO verified and certified organic.
* Microwave popcorn
The bags of microwave popcorn are lined with chemicals that are linked to cause liver, testicular, and pancreatic , liver , testicular cancers and also infertility. Perfluorooctanoic acid [ PFOA ] in microwave popcorn bag linings has been recognized by the United State Environmental Protection Agency [ EPA ] as “likely” carcinogenic, and several independent studies have linked the chemical to causative factor of tumors. Similarly, the use of ''Diacetyl chemical '' in the popcorn itself is linked to causing both lung cancer and damage .
* Soda pop
Soda pop has been shown to cause cancer as well. Loaded with colouring , food chemicals and sugar, soda pop feed the body with more acid and literally feeds cancer cells. Popular soda pop chemicals like caramel color and its derivative **4-methylimidazole** (4-MI) have also specifically been linked to cause cancer.
* ‘Diet’ foods , Beverages
Diet” soda pop and various other diet beverages and foods also cause cancer. According to a recent scientific review issued by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) of over twenty [ 20 ] independent research studies found that **Aspartame**, one of the most common artificial sweeteners, causes a range of illnesses including cancer & birth defects .Saccharin , Sucralose (Splenda) and other numerous artificial sweeteners have also been linked as a causative factor of cancer.
* Refined ‘white’ flours
Refined flour is a common processed foods ingredient , but its excessive content of carbohydrate is a serious cause for concern. A study published revealed that regular consumption of refined carbohydrates was linked to a two hundred and twenty percent [ 220 % ] increase in breast cancer among women.This publication was made in the Cancer Epidemiology, Mile maker and prevention journal. Also , High-glycemic foods in general have been shown to rapidly increase the blood sugar levels in the body, which directly feeds cancer cell growth and spread.
* Refined sugars
Refined sugars tend to rapidly spike the levels of insulin and feed the growth of cancer cells. For example Fructose-rich sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) are particularly offensive, as the cells of cancer have been shown to quickly and easily metabolize them in order to develop. And since cereals , sauces , juices, sodas , pies, cakes ,pies ,sodas cookies, cakes, pies and many other popular, mostly processed food , food items are loaded with HFCS and other refined sugars, this helps explain why the rates of cancer are on the rise these days.
* Conventional Grapes , Apples and other ‘dirty’ fruits
Alot of people usually think they are eating healthy whenever they buy and eat strawberries grapes and apples from the store. They could be a major cancer risk unless these fruits are organic or are verified to free from pesticide. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that up to Ninety eight [ 98 % ] of all conventional produce, and particularly the type found on its “dirty” fruits list, is contaminated with pesticides that causes cancer.
* Farmed salmon
According to Dr. David Carpenter, [ Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University of Albany ] ,
Farmed salmon is another high-risk food that causes Cancer. According to David Carpenter's assessment, farmed salmon not only lacks vitamin D, but it is often contaminated with antibiotics , pesticides , flame retardants , carcinogenic chemicals and Polychlorinated Biphenyls [ PCBs ], flame retardants, pesticides, and antibiotics.
