We all know that cancer is terrible, and we know that there are lifestyle changes that can help reduce our cancer risk, but often all of that information can seem overwhelming.
Check out these tips – 11 cancer-causing foods to avoid!
1. BPA lined foods
BPA is often found in hard plastics that are used in food storage. Unfortunately, BPA has been linked repeatedly to cancer; unless a canned items is labeled BPA free, avoid it.
2. Cured and smoked foods
Nitrates act as preservatives and add color, but also increase your risk of cancer.
3. Farmed fish
Courtesy overcrowding and antibiotics and more, farmed fish are far more likely to contain chemical pollutants than wild fish.
4. Grilled meat
Grilling meat increases your exposure to carcinogens, which attach to the food itself. Ouch!
5. Hydrogenated oils
Also known as trans fats, their chemical structure has been altered. That’s never good.
6. Microwave popcorn
The bags are actually the problem, as their lined with all sorts of chemicals that can cause cancer. Better off to make your own!
7. Non-organic fruits & vegetables
If it’s not organic, it may well be a GMO; even if it’s not a GMO, though, it’s likely been exposed to all sorts of cancer-causing chemicals.
8. Processed foods
Processed means additives and preservatives means chemicals – many of which have been linked to cancer. Not good!
9. Refined sugars
Cancer cells love sugar – and refined sugars have been linked to all sorts of other health issues, too.
10. Soda or sports drink
Can you say high fructose corn syrup?
Again, cancer cells thrive on sugar – cut it out of your diet, and see immediate changes!
