Here Are Some Cancer Causing Foods You Should Stop Eating Now

The statement “everything causes cancer” has become a popular hyperbole and one that some people use as rhetorical fodder to excuse their own dietary and lifestyle failures, particularly as they pertain to cancer risk. But the truth of the matter is that many common food items have, indeed, been scientifically shown to increase cancer risk, and some of them substantially. Here are some of the most unhealthy, cancer-causing foods that you should avoid.

Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs)cancer-causing-foods

It goes without saying that GMOs have no legitimate place in any cancer-free diet, especially now that both GMOs and the chemicals used to grow them have been shown to cause rapid tumor growth. But GMOs are everywhere, including in most food derivatives made from conventional corn, soybeans, and canola. However, you can avoid them by sticking with certified organic, certified non-GMO verified, and locally-grown foods that are produced naturally without biotechnology.

Processed Meatscancer-causing-foods

Most processed meat products, including lunch meats, bacon, sausage, and hot dogs, contain chemical preservatives that make them appear fresh and appealing, but that can also cause cancer. Both sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate have been linked to significantly increase the risk of colon and other forms of cancer, so be sure to choose only uncured meat products made without nitrates, and preferably from grass-fed sources

Microwave popcorncancer-causing-food

They might be convenient, but those bags of microwave popcorn are lined with chemicals that are linked to causing not only infertility but also liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancers. Several independent studies have linked the chemical to cause tumors. Similarly, the chemical used in the popcorn itself is linked to causing both lung damage and cancer

Cold drinks/ Soft drinkscancer-causing-foods

Like processed meats, cold drinks has been shown to cause cancer as well. Loaded with sugar, food chemicals, and colorings, they acidifies the body and literally feeds cancer cells. Common cold drink chemicals like caramel color and its derivative 4-methylimidazole (4-MI) have also specifically been linked to causing cancer.

 

Refined sugarscancer-causing-foods

The same goes for refined sugars, which tend to rapidly spike insulin levels and feed the growth of cancer cells. Fructose-rich sweeteners like high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) are particularly offensive, as cancer cells have been shown to quickly and easily metabolize them in order to proliferate. And since cookies, cakes, pies, sodas, juices, sauces, cereals, and many other popular, mostly processed, food items are loaded with high fructose corn syrup and other refined sugars, this helps explain why cancer rates are on the rise these days.
