Oncologists Urge You To Stop Eating These 6 Foods That Are Proven To Cause Cancer!

Bacon, lunch meat, hot dogs, sausages, and other processed meats have been shown to increase the risk of pancreatic cancer by 67% a study by the University of Hawaii concluded. More shocking statistics shared by the Organic Consumer’s Association reveal hot dogs commonly contain sodium nitrite, cancer-causing ingredient the USDA has been trying to ban since the 1970s.

4. Red Meat

A brand new study confirms the belief that red meat increases cancer risks. In an article from the San Diego Union-Tribune detailing the study, a sugar molecule, called Neu5Gc, becomes part of your own cells when it’s consumed.

Your body then attacks it, resulting in inflammation and higher cancer risk. Medscape reveals that previous studies also show an increase in breast cancer among women who consumed more red meat. You don’t need to cut out red meat entirely.

In fact, CNCA Health says just opt for grass-fed organic beef, which contains conjugated linoleic acis that can actually fight against certain cancers.  Also, keep red meat consumption to a minimum to further decrease your risk.

5. Diet Foods

Diet foods are loaded with artificial sweeteners, artificial colors and flavors, and more. One artificial sweetener, Saccharin, was determined to cause cancer in lab rats, as the National Cancer Institute points out.

As for food dyes and coloring, “The three most widely used dyes, Red 40, Yellow 5, and Yellow 6, are contaminated with known carcinogens, says CSPI. Another dye, Red 3, has been acknowledged for years by the Food and Drug Administration to be a carcinogen, yet is still in the food supply.”

Choosing the regular version of these foods in moderation is a better option than the diet counterparts.

6. GMO’s

With no testing done by the FDA to ensure safety, GMOs (genetically modified organisms) have made their way into the majority of our foods. These GMO foods have been modified to withstand heavy doses of a pesticide called glyphosate OR are engineered to contain a toxin that kills bugs.

Not enough independent studies have been done to prove safety or danger, but independent testing has shown to cause rapid tumor growth in lab rats. Currently, GMOs do not have to be disclosed on food labels in the US.

In addition, Glyphosate, which is the most common pesticide sprayed on GM crops and an additional 200 crops, has been linked to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, birth defects, and intestinal discomfort, among other things.
