Oncologists everywhere are warning people that these foods are causing cancer! There are so many foreign products in our foods that we barely even question it anymore. It sounds like clockwork, but here are the foods you have to avoid!
Corporate greed has led food manufacturers to have to use fake and toxic products in order to produce the cheapest and most profitable foods out there. In some ways, our ancestors had it easy.
Because they didn’t have chemically treated food and chemically enhanced kitchenware, their diets and cooking practices exposed them to fewer toxic hazards.
Here are six foods that oncologists everywhere are urging people to put down.
1. Fries and Chips
Fast food is notorious for having high continence of cancer-causing chemicals. They use loads of different chemicals in their products, especially their french fries and potato chips. The worst chemical in them is hydrogenated oil.
It increases the risk of high blood pressure as well as other health problems. In addition, foods heated above a certain temperature have high levels of acrylamide. According to the National Cancer Institute, acrylamide is found in cigarette smoke and industrial building materials, as well as some foods.
Both french fries and potato chips were found to have higher levels of this chemical that studies have shown increases the risk of cancer. Potatoes are also part of the Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen” meaning they have some of the most pesticide residues of all the fruits and vegetables.
Microwavable popcorn has lots of different toxic chemicals. It contains PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) which is a likely carcinogen. Dr. Andrew Weil sets the record straight about microwave popcorn, explaining that artificial butter contains another dangerous chemical that can damage the lungs when inhaled.
In fact, a couple of years ago a Colorado court awarded a man a $7.2 million settlement for “popcorn lung” which is a lung condition from inhaling too much microwave popcorn. To reduce your risk of exposure to these chemicals, air pop your popcorn and add your own flavoring instead.
3. Processed Meats
