The Top Five Cancer-Causing Foods

Lifestream Health Centre shares this report on five cancer-causing foods to watch out for:

  • Hot Dogs. Because they are high in nitrates (a well-known carcinogenic), the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hotdogs a month. If you can’t live without hotdogs, buy those without sodium nitrate. Better yet, shun hotdogs altogether and opt for healthier food as a safer substitute.
  • Processed Meat with Bacons. Bacon is also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hotdogs. Bacon and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.
  • Doughnuts. These are cancer-causing double-trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar and hydrogenated oil, then fried at high temperature. Doughnuts, says Adams, may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.
  • French Fries. Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperature. They also contain cancer-causing acrylamides which occur during frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams.
  • Chips, Crackers, and Cookies. Chips, crackers and cookies are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free on trans-fats generally contain small amount of trans-fat.

Although the New Year celebration has just passed by, these few reminders are still timely for those who drink. In a related medical findings, the widespread belief that moderate taking of alcoholic drinks is harmless and even good for the health is blasted by results of experiments conducted by an American team. The top findings are as follows:

  • Any kind of alcoholic drink destroys irreplaceable brain cells.
  • Continuous years of drinking translate into the destruction of millions of such cells.
  • Brain cell damage or loss is permanent, and the symptoms include advanced aging, recurrent loss of memory, impaired judgment, slowed wits, and reduced sensory acuity.
