Medical experts say that cancer is a complex set of diseases caused by:
- specific infections,
- poor lifestyle habits,
- poor diet,
- physical inactivity,
- environmental exposure to various types of chemicals and radiation.
10 foods we must avoid by ll cots because they Cause Cancer-Oncologists Warn .
Here is the list:
1. Genetically Modified Foods (GMOs):
- genetically modified crops are infiltrating our food
- 90% of our corn and soy are now genetically modified
- look for GMO-free labels whenever possible or buy organic
2. Microwave Popcorn:
- chemically-lined bag
- microwave popcorn is at the center of lung cancer debates around the world
- the fumes released from artificial butter flavoring contain diacetyl, which is toxic to humans
- the best is to make your own organic popcorn the old-fashioned way
3. Canned Goods
- cans are lined with a product called bisphenol-A (BPA),
- study showed that this genetically alter the brain cells of rats
- plastic goods, thermal paper, water lines, and many dental composites also contain BPA
- protect your DNA by sticking to fresh or frozen vegetables
4. Grilled Red Meat:
- grilled food can taste delicious but it releases a carcinogen called heterocyclic aromatic amines
- when you grill red meat to the point of well-done, it changes the chemical and molecular structure of the meat.
- go for baking, broiling, or preparing meat in a skillet than on the grill.
5. Refined Sugar:
- high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and other refined sugar are the worst
- brown sugar is highly refined white sugar with some of the removed molasses added back in for flavor and color so avoid it too
- they are the source of major insulin spikes and feed the growth of cancer cells
- oncologists are using diabetes medication to fight cancer cells.
6. Salted, Pickled, and Smoked Foods:
- packed with preservatives
- this toxins cause damage at the cellular level and lead to cancer
- smoked foods when cooked at high temperatures, the nitrates are converted to the much more dangerous nitrites
7. Soda and Carbonated Beverages:
- Sodas are filled with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), dyes, and a host of other chemicals, they are very bad for every aspect of your health
- with zero nutritional value
8. White Flour:
When flour is refined, all nutritional value is removed. Then it’s bleached with chlorine gas to make it more appealing to consumers. The glycemic index for white flour is very high – meaning it spikes your insulin levels without providing nutritional fuel. Carbohydrates are converted to sugars by your body, so excessive products that contain white flour can lead to increased insulin resistance. Simple sugars (like refined carbohydrates) are the preferred fuel source for cancer.
9. Farmed Fish:
- incredible number of fish (like salmon) are raised in a crowded environment
- over 60% of the salmon consumed in the United States comes from a farming operation
- fish are treated with antibiotics, pesticides, and other carcinogenic chemicals
- farmed fish also don’t have as much omega-3 as wild salmon
10. Hydrogenated Oils are :
- chemically extracted from their source,
- chemically treated
- and with chemicals are added to change the smell and tast
- packed with unhealthy omega-6 fats
- able to alter the structure of our cell membranes.
