It seems like cancer is everywhere and there is nothing we can do or eat to avoid it. Well, while it is becoming a disturbingly common medical condition, not everything causes it. And in our attempt to live healthy and avoid cancer, it can be useful to know a few of the foods we should definitely avoid. Natural News gives a list of the Top Ten worst foods. These are a few of those cancer causing big-and-bad foods to avoid:
- Microwave popcorn. This one saddened me a bit, as microwave popcorn is connected to so many cozy and convenient moments. But it is also connectd to liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancers because of the bag’s chemical lining. The EPA even recognizes it.
- Diet items. Foods and drinks containing aspartame can cause birth defects and cancer. So if you must have a naughty sugary treat, perhaps it is best to just go for it instead of opting for synthetic sweetness and the cancer that comes along with it.
- Dirty Fruits. Wait, what? How can fruits be dirty? Well, apples, grapes, strawberries and other fruits if not organic, can be laced with cancer causing pesticides.
These sorts of lists can be scary and a little inconvenient if they pressure you to change your eating and lifestyle habits. But the truth, although sometimes scary, could save your life. Read on for the rest of the list as well as research links.
