Here are 8 of the most unhealthy, cancer-causing foods that you should never eat again.
The lining of microwave popcorn bags causes immune system and liver damage.Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), found in the lining of the bag, is linked to many health problems, according to a recent study from UCLA. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognizes the perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) in microwave popcorn bag linings as “likely” carcinogenic, and several independent studies have linked the chemical to causing tumors.
BPA liners are added to the inside of cans to prevent the liquid inside from coming into contact with the metal in the can.
BPA is an industrial chemical that has been used to make certain plastics and resins since the 1960s. BPA (Bisphenol A) mimics estrogen in our bodies, binding to the same receptors as natural female hormones which might be damaging. BPA is a hormone disruptor that has been linked in animal studies to cancer, obesity, infertility and diabetes.
Aspartame causes a dose-dependent increase in cancers (lymphomas, leukemias and breast cancers) when consumed at levels approaching those consumed by humans in diet soft drinks.
A recent scientific review issued by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) of more than 20 separate research studies found that aspartame, one of the most common artificial sweeteners, causes a range of illnesses including birth defects and cancer.
Let’s admit, most food in America is genetically modified. With wheat, corn and soy being 90% GMO, it is hard to avoid it. Why are GMO’s so dangerous? Well, Genetic modification creates new proteins the human body has never before seen. They become these foreign organisms which our bodies try to attack and destroy. It causes our bodies to be under constant stress which in turn creates inflammation and can lead to cancer.
According to one of the studies, Farm-raised salmon contains significantly higher concentrations of PCBs, dioxin and other cancer-causing contaminants than salmon caught in the wild. Farmed fish contain higher concentrations of contaminants than wild fish largely because they are fed meal that consists of ground-up fish tainted with contaminants. Many researchers are convinced that eating farmed salmon leads to an increased cancer risk due to high amounts of PCB’s the low-quality of nutrients.
Vegetable oils alter the structure and flexibility of cell membranes throughout the body, which can lead to a host of debilitating diseases such as cancer. Vegetables Oils are really high in PUFA (polyunsaturated fats). The entire composition of our bodies is around 97% saturated and monounsaturated fat. In order to renew and rebuild our cells, our bodies require fat. And if we constantly give it unhealthy and unnatural fats, it will use them with the sad end results. Vegetable Oils are dangerous for your health as they get oxidized right away when they are subjected to heat. This leads to creation of free radicals which, as we know, contribute to premature aging and many diseases.
One of the largest studies to address this question, published online March 7 in BMC Medicine, found a moderate positive association between processed meat consumption and mortality. Both sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate contained in processed meat have been linked to significantly increasing the risk of colon and other forms of cancer
A new study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Mile Markers, and Prevention is presenting evidence of the link between the consumption of refined carbohydrates and cancer.
