Cancer is a deadly disease and we live in a world where everything can cause cancer. So next time you go to buy your favorite food stop for a while, wait a moment and think, the food you are about to buy the very next moment, may be carcinogenic or cancer causing.
Here Are 5 Top Cancer Causing Foods You Must Avoid
1. Microwave Popcorn
This super convenient pack of quick snack is something almost everyone has in their kitchen. But have you ever thought that these microwave popcorn can cause cancer? No probably not, but alas! They are indeed carcinogenic. The bags in which microwave popcorn are packed, are lined with perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) which is a toxic chemical. It can cause infertility in women and poses a great threat to the kidney, liver, pancreas, bladder and testicular and promote these organ-specific cancers. Moreover the corn used in making of microwave popcorn is genetically modified which is again carcinogenic. A safer alternative to this snack is the traditional popcorn.
2. Diet Or Frozen Eatables
Any eatable, labeled as DIET, generally contains aspartame, which breaks down into the body and produces a deadly toxin known as DKP. When human stomach processes DKP, the toxin produces cancer causing chemicals. Aspartame is also known to cause heart problems, birth defects and many more diseases.
This is the main cause of cancer worldwide. Excessive use of alcohol can cause heart failure, sudden death, stroke, and cancers of mouth, liver, rectum, breast and esophagus. However, moderate amount of alcohol consumption is acceptable and not harmful.
4. Genetically Modified Organisms
These are the foods that are grown with chemicals or had been modified by the use of chemical. These GMO’s can damage the immune system, and are carcinogenic in nature.
5. Hydrogenated Oils
Hydrogenated oils are used for the preservation of the processed foods and to improve their shelf life. These hydrogenated oils have a negative impact on the membrane of a human cell and alter its structure which can cause cancer.
6. Potato Chips
This tasty snack is a part, almost every household, but the ill effects they have on human body make it unworthy of satisfying our taste buds. Packaged potato chips are topped with a large number of unhealthy preservatives and artificial flavors, which make it a harmful snacking option. Moreover, they are fried in a high temperature, which produce acrylamide. Acrylamide is carcinogenic and is also found in cigarette. Instead of fried potato chips, try switching to baked potato chips, which is a safe alternative over the fried one.
Be a carrier of good health and avoid cancer by subtracting the above from your daily foods, and enjoy a healthy life.
