Food and cancer

During a few years, more than half a million people on the Earth have been diagnosed a certain form of cancer. Oncological diseases are the most intractable on the planet. While scientists struggle with cancer their work does not bring any results but accumulates a lot of knowledge about the prevention of disease.

Medicine has already accumulated a considerable amount of data and information about cancer. It is known, for example, that may contribute to its occurrence a number of reasons. Besides heredity and environment, according to the study, the risk of cancer to a great extent depends on what we eat.

Doctors made the black list of products that significantly increase the risk of cancer and malignant tumors. It would not be an exaggeration to say that what we eat can have a negative impact on our health.

Below there is a list of foods that doctors believe to be carcinogenic, i.e. contributing to the development of cancer.

1. Processed meats

Fans of hot dogs, sausages, bacon and other types of processed meat are at a great risk to their health, because most of the meat products, which were processed, have a high content of salts and harmful chemicals.

Some studies show that people who are eating processed meat regularly increase the risk of premature death by 43% including and from of oncological diseases. The most harmful substance in these meat products is considered to be a sodium nitrate.

2. Products from refined white flour of higher grades

After treatment, most of white flour loses nutrients. Products made from white flour, in addition, are chlorine bleached. Medicine considers this a dangerous irritant gas poisoning of which can be fatal.

In addition, white flour and highly glycemic foods have a negative impact on blood sugar. Products from it not only contribute to the appearance of extra kilos, but also may increase the risk of cancer.

3. Popcorn from the microwave

Food and cancer

Popcorn is not only one of the most popular products on the planet, but also very harmful. This particularly applies to popcorn, which is prepared in a microwave oven that is easy and convenient. This popcorn contains perfluorooctanoic acid which is also used in teflon. Studies show that this chemical causes infertility in women. Scientists say that perfluorooctanoic acid dramatically increases the risk of cancers of internal organs: liver, kidney, bladder, pancreas, and testes.

Cooked in the microwave popcorn contains another very dangerous chemical - diacetyl.

4. Artificial sweeteners

People who try to avoid sugar, are on a diet or have diabetes, most often replaced the sugar with artificial sweeteners. Numerous studies have shown that they are mostly overweight. Additionally, sweeteners violate control blood sugar levels.

There is also a study that the popular sweetener aspartame in the decay turns into a very dangerous toxic substance dipotassium phosphate DKP. At the same time, doctors suspect that it can sharply increase the risk of malignant tumors in the brain.

5. Alcohol

Food and cancer

Of course, everyone knows about the danger of alcohol in its excessive use. However, not everybody knows that too much alcohol can lead to many types of cancer.

A recent study showed that women of postmenstrual age, who drank at least one alcoholic beverage a day increases the risk of breast cancer by 30%.

Alcohol is considered the second most common cause of promoting cancer disease after tobacco. Experts from the World Health Organization, engaged in research of oncological diseases, found evidence that alcohol is a major cause of cancer of the mouth, esophagus, liver, colon, and for women - breast.

6. Refined sugar and soda pop

Many believe that the refined sugar contributes to the accelerated growth of malignant cells. But one of the main culprits is considered fructose syrup, because it is easily absorbed by the walls of cancer cells. From this it follows that the great variety of cakes, pastries and sodas pop occupied in the black list of carcinogenic products is one of the highest places.

7. Smoked, marinated and salted products

All these products have a high content of nitrates, which are converted to N-nitroso nitrozometilanilin. This material dramatically increases the likelihood of various types of cancer.

8. Potato Chips

Food and cancer 

Of course chips, like the vast majority of harmful products, are tasty, but the negative effects, such as weight, outweigh any short-term advantages. Extra kilos are promoted by a high level of fat and calories in chips.

9. Salmon, grown on a farm

A significant part of the salmon consumed in the world today is grown on special farms. There they sit on special diets, based chemicals, antibiotics and other known carcinogens. According to chemical analyzes in the meat of artificial salmon the content of polychlorinated biphenyls and mercury is increased.

10. Dietary Products

Dietary products despite the attractive name are not good for health. They have a lot of aspartame, which was mentioned above as well as derivatives of sodium, chemical substances that give them bright colors and refined additives to restore the lost taste. Many low-calorie foods are actually increased caloric value in comparison with conventional products.

11. GMO

The question about whether GMO increase cancer risk because of the presence of transgenes in them or not - remains open. Some experimental studies have revealed GMO-negative characteristics, but the analysis of these studies suggests no harmful effects themselves GMO, and an unbalanced diet. If laboratory animals fed a predominantly corn, it will adversely affect their health, regardless of whether it was normal or transgenic corn.

12. Hydrogenated Oil

Food and cancer

These are vegetable oils, which are often painted and deodorized. In addition, they have a high content of fatty acids Omega-6, which causes a lot of health problems.

Red meat in small quantities only benefits the body. However, it should be understood that in using it every day, there is a possibility to make colon cancer.

14. Canned tomatoes

Most canned foods are stored in the banks, and the majority of cans are coated with a chemical called bisphenol-A (BPA). A study two years ago showed that BPA affects the genes in the brain of laboratory rats. The results of this study convinced the regulatory agencies of many countries in the dangers of BPA. Now regulators require manufacturers completely replace it with other substances, or at least drastically limit the amount.

The most dangerous thing is that tomatoes are made with high acidity. They faster than other canned food absorb BPA from the coating of cans.

15. Mayonnaise and ketchup

Emulsifiers, stabilizers, preservatives, trans fats, vinegar, sugar - these are just a small part of a long list of harmful substances used in the manufacture of these very tasty and very unhealthy food that accompanies most dishes fast food in everyday life for many people.

No less dangerous and plastic packaging, which also contains cancer-causing chemicals!
