The top of the list: sausage, bacon as well as hot dogs.  The reason, an increased chance of getting colorectal cancer.  Having only 50-60 grams of processed meat a day  can increase the risk of colon cancer by almost 20%.  (the equivalent of 2 slices of ham)

The problem comes from the adding of salt as well as preservatives. When being cooked the salt (sodium nitrites) combine with the meat forming cancer-causing N-nitroso compounds. ‘I avoid smoked foods due to nitrates,’ says Dr.  Bonta, a medical oncologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America.   Smoked fish is not nearly as bad as smoked meats.

Microwaveable  Popcorn

Microwave popcorn has loaded with fake butter.  The  fumes contain diacytel .  This is a compound that is associated with lung cancers.  Also known as a ‘butter bomb,’ diacytel gives popcorn its butter like flavor and aroma.  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognizes in microwave popcorn bag linings as ‘likely’ carcinogenic  Make your own amazing popcorn in the microwave.

Salmon is rich in healthy fats known as omega-3 fatty acids, and when consumed in place of a high-fat protein source, it can help control weight. ‘Obesity is a major risk factor for many cancers.’ Other cancer-fighting foods can also help.

CHARRED BROILED MEATS

The World Health Organization has proved unprocessed red meat may also cause cancer.    Follow these guidelines for healthier grilling.

ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS

Artificial sweeteners have no place in the house due to potential cancer risk.  There is ongoing research into the effects.  This being said, so why not use something natural until we have sound research?’ he asks. ‘We don’t know what we will find out in the next 10 years.’ Here’s what happens to your body when you go cold turkey on fake sugars.

Bagels is a white foods that raises blood sugar.  Eating foodstuff with a high glycemic index :

Glycemic Index (GI) is a measurement carried out on carbohydrate-containing foods and their impact on our blood sugar. GI is a relatively new way of analyzing foods.  It was found to raise risk of lung cancer in non-Hispanic Caucasians.  A study from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center focused on high GI foods.  Examples of which would be white bread , bagels, corn flakes as well as puffed rice.
