It is known that poor diet is a major risk factor when it comes to malignant diseases.
What some foods make them dangerous are chemical substances and additives that are added in order to improve taste and other food characteristics. In order to threw food from our menu which is potentially dangerous and promote the development of cancer cells, we first need to identify them.
Unhealthy Food That May Cause Cancer:
Genetically modified organisms (GMO)
This does not have to be mentioned, that GMO is all around us, food that used derivatives of corn, soybeans, rapeseed oil. Some independent studies have shown and associated certain chemistry which helps the growth and protection of these plantations. You can defend yourself by buying organic or certified GMO-free food.
They are used not only in that form, but also to preserve processed foods and enable it to last long. But chemical process of hydrogenation is detrimental to our health, it attack the structure of the cell membrane and thus can causes many diseases, including cancer.
Sausages, salami, pates, contain chemical preservatives and additives to make them long-lasting and attractive to eye, but they also cause cancer. Nitrites and nitrates are associated with increased risk in cancer of the colon, so it is best to avoid processed meats in your diet.
With too much sugar, chemicals, artificial colors, soft drinks literally feed the cancer cells. The usual chemical admixture, such as caramel color and a derivative of Methylimidazole (4-MI) are carcinogenic.
Refined white flour is all around us and is the most common ingredient in the food. A study published in Cancer Epidemiology showed that regular consumption of refined carbohydrates, increases the risk of getting breast cancer by 200%. Foods that have a high glycemic index (GI) is generally responsible for a sudden jump of sugar in the body, which in addition to insulin resistance, may cause the progression and spread of cancer.
Causing a sudden jump of insulin. Fructose has been shown to be rapidly metabolized by cancer cells and helps them to grow even more.
Popcorn for microwave
Popcorn for microwave is full of chemicals that can cause testicular cancer or pancreatic. There is something called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) which is found in these bags and that probably is cancerous and several studies had linked them with tumors.
Pesticides in fruits
Many people think that they eat healthy food when eat apples, strawberries, pears or other fruit. However, unless they are properly clean or they are organically grown and certified without pesticides, they can also cause cancer. Excessive amount of pesticides we eat with fruits is poisonous.
