Top 10 cancer-causing foods
Page 2 of 2
1 White flour: after the refining white flour not only loses most of its nutritional value, but is also bleached with chlorine gas, a highly irritant glycemic gas which is one of the preferred fuel source for cancer.
2 Popcorn: sometimes they are treated with perfluorooctanoic acid (Pfoa), which can cause female infertility, as well as significantly increase the risk of cancer to kidneys, bladder, liver, pancreas and testicles.
3 Artificial sweeteners: they can make it harder to control the level of blood sugar. Also aspartame, when decomposed, becomes a toxin called diketopiperazine (Dkp), known to cause brain cancer.
4 Alcohol: it favors the development of cancers of the mouth, esophagus, liver, colon and rectum. In women, after menopause, even take an alcoholic drink a day increases risk of breast cancer by 30%.
5 Sweetened soft drinks and candy: as well as aiding the development of tooth decay, increase the risk of cancers of the blood, because the fructose content in corn syrup is easily metabolized by cancer cells.
6 Processed meat: the majority of salami contains an excess of sodium nitrate and carcinogenic agents (especially in roasted meats) which increases the risk of cancer of 43%.
7 Smoked foods, marinated and stir: they often contain nitrates that are transformed into N-nitroso compounds, which carries high risks of cancer when digested. In smoked meats there is a high fat content which can promote stomach cancer and colon-rectum.
8 French fries: the high greases and calories promotes weight gain and with the trans-grease and high-sodium form a recipe for cancer and heart disease.
9 Farmed fish (especially salmons): they are grown rapidly with unnatural diets rich in antibiotics, pesticides, mercury and other carcinogenic chemicals, which means that they aren’t exactly the best fish you could eat.
10 Hydrogenated Oils: vegetable oils, such as margarine, are chemically treated to change the smell, color and taste. Often they’re packed with unhealthy omega-6 fats, that lengthen the time of food preservation, but are likely to shorten your life.
