1Foods That Are Linked To Cancer
You might already know that eating junk food is a major risk factor for cancer. But there are a lot of health foods and diet products which also have carcinogens hiding in them.
What if you don’t eat junk and don’t follow diet fads? Do you know that almost all packaged foods contain certain ingredients which may be cancer causing agents? It’s time to be an informed consumer and vote with your money so that food companies are forced to put good quality, safe products on shelves.
Without further ado, here is a list of 19 common foods to help you understand the link between eating and cancer. But we’re not just telling you what not to eat; we’ve also noted some healthier alternatives to add to your diet to reduce cancer risk factors.
1 – Soda
When you drink soda, you are exposing yourself to a combination of endocrine-disrupting BPA, sugar or chemical sweeteners and 4-MEI. Cancer cells love sugar.
The sugar in soda contributes to empty, nutrition-deficient calories and therefore weight gain. Additionally, the caramel color of soda is derived from 4-MEI, a known carcinogen.
Alternative: Drink a cold glass of water with a slice of lemon or cucumber. It’s very refreshing. Or go for a locally produced brand of soda that is honest about the ingredients.
