Cancer has become a disease that has worried many people. In recent years more than 1.5 million people have been diagnosed with some form of cancer. Probably you have not stopped to think that their food may be prevention for this serious disease.
My personal conclusion is that the best way to a healthier life is to consume a diet as natural as possible and always in moderate amounts.
Many foods we eat every day have carcinogens, check it out:
- Microwave Popcorn
Microwave popcorn is so practical and just not worrying about the material used to produce it. First, the carton is coated with a chemical substance known as ‘perfluoro-octanoic acid’ is also found in Teflon. According to a study by University of California (USA), this chemical compound is related to infertility in women. It makes the risk of developing much higher cancer. In addition to the packaging, the risk is the popcorn itself containing preservatives and other chemicals that cause problems to our health.
2. Non-organic fruits
The use of herbicides, fertilizers and pesticides is common. It is not enough to wash and take the shells, the pesticide penetrates the fruit. Consumers should look for fruits that have quality seal as they pass through quality control.
3. Canned goods and plastic packaging
Often the consumption of canned and other foods in plastic containers. However, it is a risk to your health. They are made with Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical compound completely harmful to health as well. According to the Brazilian Society of Endocrinology and Metabolism “(…) when coming into contact with the human body, particularly during intrauterine life, the substance can affect the endocrine system, increasing or decreasing the action of hormones naturally produced by the body human, bringing health damage, such as infertility, developmental changes of internal sex organs, endometriosis and cancer. “· A tip is to use containers and glassware, porcelain and stainless steel, thus preventing cans and plastics. Always consume fresh or stored in glass.
4. Processed meats
There are several types of processed meats such as bacon, sausage, sausage, bologna, ham, salami and so on down the list. They are processed in order to increase the shelf life and alter the taste. However, research shows that they increase the risk of cancer, especially bowel and when consumption is frequent and excessive because even death. They concentrate a very high amount of salt and other seasonings, and preservatives, and other chemicals that are cancerous.
5. Farmed Salmon
Consume fish to have more health and yet buy salmon bred in captivity will damage and no benefits. That’s because the high fat content overcrowding and feeding conditions receiving in the ‘farm’. According to a study conducted recently the salmon is contaminated with chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides and other carcinogens known as PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), dioxins and dieldrin. Then ensure that the salmon you eat is wild. Seek information on the packaging
6. Potato chips or fries or crisps
Everyone loves potato. As we know, particularly those that come in packaging as crisps and even precooked and frozen concentrated excess salt, preservatives and colorants. In addition to contributing to weight gain and cholesterol, have a carcinogen known as “Acrylamide”. So avoid the potatoes and when not resist prefer toasted seeds, nuts or other healthier options.
7. Vegetable oils
All vegetable oils are hydrogenated, i.e. undergo chemical process to come to you with nice appearance and taste. We need some fats for our health, but that does not mean that you can use oil will in their food. Everything in excess is harmful to your health.There are several types of oil and each caters to something specific and brings some benefit. The problem is the temperature we use the oil. In the article ‘The oils that do well and do poorly’ it reads “When heated above 180 ° C, most of the oil degrades and releases harmful substances to the body. The main one is acrolein, which destroys the elastic fibers of arteries. They are hard and do not allow a good flow of blood and irritate the lining of the stomach. Ideally, the oils are used for sautéing and baking food or water salads. ”
8. Food pickled, smoked or salty
Canned account for a very high number of salt. Avoid! The smoked foods end up absorbing much tar which is a carcinogen. We found the presence of nitrate and nitrite acting as preservatives in foods that are cured. The problem is the excessive amount of nitrite. When this occurs there is a potential risk of carcinogenic substances. So your diet dispose of salty and smoked foods.
9. Highly processed foods like flour and sugar
When these foods are processed, they lose all their nutrients and come in contact with our bloodstream become food for cancer cells. All because blood glucose rate is very high in refined products. The sugar level rises very quickly. Avoid refined grains!
10. GM Food
They are genetically modified foods. Were modified in the laboratory, by changing the nature of the seeds, a mutation between, for example, soybean and bacteria. It is still unknown the destructive impact they can have on our bodies. The only published study only showed that our digestive system absorbs bacteria contained in these foods.
11. Sugar and more sugar
The world is full of sweet candies, soft drinks, juices, delicious cakes and tarts and irresistible pizzas and pasta, and many other goodies. All very delicious, but deadly. As already mentioned cancer tumors get fed by sugar. So they can grow freely. This concentration of sugar in our body is due mainly to the most popular and processed foods. The high concentration of sugars may help explain why cancer grows so much between us.
12. Artificial Sweeteners
Nothing more, nothing less than a chemical. As we have seen, everything is handled just bringing harm to our body.· Some studies have proven that long term use of aspartame favors even weight gain. If you overload your body with these sweeteners can cause allergies and even tumors.
13. Diet Products
There you are worried about your health, but end up buying products that is already ready and justifies his eating because the packaging is written that is free of fats and sugar. Big mistake. Always remember that artificial food is always a mistake. As mentioned above, sweetener does well. Make a diet with natural foods.
14. Drinking ·
After tobacco, alcohol is the leading cause of cancer.The International Agency for Research on World Health Organization Cancer gave sufficient evidence to claim that excessive alcohol use is the leading cause of oral cancer, esophagus, liver, colon, mouth, rectum, and female breast cancers.
15. Red meat
You don’t need to despair. Consumption in small amounts do bring benefits in the fight against cancer. The source of the meat is essential! The problem lies in daily consumption too. In large amounts, it increases the risk of breast, prostate and colon cancer; especially if the animals were not grass fed. Keep an eye on your plate and consume sporadically.
16. Soft drinks and similar beverages
Besides the high sugar concentration, such drinks are loaded with chemicals to ensure the taste and corrode you inside. The high levels of sugar and other ingredients contribute to inflammation of the esophagus.
