There was a time when cancer was a not-so-popular disease and cancer was actually considered as an incurable disease. With advancement in technology, fortunately, we have a cure for this deadly disease. But at the same time with the urbanization in the food industry, our eatables are turning into cancer causing agents. We have with us some of our favorite foods that are actually the root cause of cancer. But unfortunately, we are consuming these cancer causing food on a daily basis. This list will shake you to the core, take a look:
#1 Easy To Prepare: Microwave Popcorn
PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), commonly known as C8 which is highly found in the packagings bags filled with easy to make popcorns. And this will probably shatter you apart but PFOA not only harms our kidney but bladder, liver, pancreas and testicles.
But you can still put back the shattered pieces together by removing the bag provided by the company and using your own brown paper bag.
#2 Our Favourite: Canned Tomato Puree
BPA (bisphenol-A) is what is found in our favorite Tomato can and to our surprise, it can cause breast and prostate cancer. It even affects infertility and is the cause of early puberty, metabolic disorders, and type-2 diabetes.
But the reason why a lining of this chemical is provided on the tomato cans is that tomatoes are high in acidity and it is needed to regulate it.
#3 The Fancy Food: Farmed Salmon
For people of USA, it’s a devastating news cause more than 60% of the Salmon that is consumed is totally farm raised. PCB’s (Polychlorinated biphenyls), mercury and dioxins who responsible for causing cancer are found in salmon in high amounts.
And moreover, these farmed salmons contain low amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids. Why not go wild? Eat only the wild salmon.
#4 The Essential: Hydrogenated Oil
These oils are used to preserve food and that too processed ones to make them look fresh as much as possible. But unfortunately, these oils are responsible for tampering with our cell structure turning our cells into cancer causing cells.
When choosing oils only choose naturally extracted oils but better health.
#5 Delicious Ones: Red Meat And Processed Meat
These mouth-watering bacon, sausages bologna, pimento loaf, hot dogs, prosciutto are all processed versions of meat. They contain ample amount of harmful chemicals including sodium nitrate to give them a fresher look. And these smoked meats are more dangerous as the smoking process adds tar to the meat. And these processed items can cause early death due to their cancerous ability.
#6 In Every Kitchen: Bread
Brominated flour which is added in all grain-related items add bulk and speed up the manufacturing process. This is utterly shocking that these bread are everywhere present in the market in such bulk amount and in every household too. This brominated flour is the root cause of cancer.
#7 Sweet Death: Refined Sugar
HFC ( High Fructose Corn Syrup), this is what all our tumor cells feed on. And it’s not at all surprising that these refined sugars provide food to cancer causing cells.
#8 Drink Of The Night: Alcohol
