5 Cancer-Causing Food That You Eat Every Day and How to Fight Back

Cancer. The big C.

Really, is there anything scarier than getting the news that you have cancer?

We all know the seriousness of cancer and the devastation and despair it can cause, not only to those who have the disease, but to their loved ones, family, and friends as well.

Fact: About 1 in 8 deaths all over the world is caused by cancer.

I know, this is all a lot to take in. Cancer is pretty scary.

But what if I told you that a lot of the food that you eat, maybe even every day, can lead to cancer, or contains ingredients that WILL cause cancer?

Now that’s even scarier.

According to American personal trainer and fitness coach Jillian Michaels, “Most of us don’t think of the food we eat as poison, but some of the ingredients commonly found in processed foods can be considered toxic. By ‘toxic,’ I mean chemicals or highly processed ingredients that aren’t good for you or can cause harm to your health.”

Here are the top 5 products that cause cancer.

Grilled Red Meat

You might have to cut back on taking part in backyard barbecues. When you cook meat in high temperatures or over open flames, the compounds in the meat go through biochemical reactions. This produces carcinogenic compounds that alter a person’s DNA. These compounds are called heterocyclic amines (HCA) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH).

Studies show that HCA can develop tumors of the breast, skin, lung, prostate, liver, colon, and other organs. PAH also increase the risk of cancer, including leukemia and tumors in the gastrointestinal tract.

Artificial Sweeteners

I’m sure you’re feeling all snooty and high and mighty as you dump those sachets of Equal, or Splenda, or Sweet ‘N Low into your glass of iced tea.

But hold up, there’s something you should know.

According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), these artificial sweeteners may cause cancer. The intake of these products increase cancerous tumors and leukemia.

Palm Oil

So, you think it’s a french fries kinda night, huh? You head over to your local McDonald’s and buy the biggest serving of fries, gleefully imagining a relaxing evening of just you, french fries, a can of soda, and some Netflix.

But hold up.

Have you ever thought about the oil they use in cooking those fries? They use palm oil. And according to recent research conducted by the Institute for Research in Biomedicine in Spain, palm oil helps speed up the process of metastasis (cancer spread).

Still not convinced?

Palm oil is often rancid because of heavy processing and oxidation. So what happens is a combination of chemical solvents, high heat, and pressure is used to draw out vegetable oil from plants. This exposes them to plenty of light and air. When this happens, the oils oxidize and become rancid and lose many of their nutrients. This then causes them to be toxic.

Canned Food

Most, if not all, cans are lined with bisphenol-A (BPA). This is a toxic chemical that causes hormone imbalances and a number of health issues.

Yes, including cancer.

According to Breast Cancer UK, there is scientific evidence that shows even low-level exposure to BPA affects the development of breast tissue. Some studies also show a connection of BPA to breast cancer and prostate cancer.

Farmed Fish

Commercial fish farming is quite popular in the United States. This means raising hundreds and thousands of fish in tanks or enclosures, usually for food purposes.

And did you know that in order to control parasitic, bacterial and viral outbreaks that result from cramming so many fish in a relatively small space (as compared to the vast ocean), fish farmers make use of pesticides, antibiotics, and other carcinogenic chemicals?

Cool.

Also, farmed fish accumulate polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from the fish meal they get. And PCBs are cancer-causing chemicals. These fish also have high levels of polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE), another contributor to cancer.

 


 

Now if that isn’t enough to stop you from eating whatever, I don’t know what will.

Luckily for you, according to a number of researchers, at least 50 percent of all types of cancer are preventable. How? By adopting a healthier, holistic lifestyle.

That means taking better care of yourself, exercising more, eating healthier food, balancing life and work, etc.

Now I know doing all that takes a lot of time, energy, and effort. Not to mention a lot of money too.

Fortunately, there’s one product that contains a number of ingredients that are known to stop cancer before it enters your system.
