Top 10 Cancer-Causing Foods In Your Kitchen

6

We are constantly being bombarded with health information regarding the foods we eat on a regular basis, or even just occasionally, and the influx of so much information is often confusing and unnecessary. On the other hand, unhealthy foods that may lead to serious illnesses, in particular to cancer, are all around us and we often don’t even see them as that damaging.

The following list contains the most widespread foods that should never have become foods in the first place.

1. Refined Sugar

Refined sugar is one of the biggest offenders when it comes to cancer-causing foods we eat on a regular basis. Refined sugar increases insulin levels in the body and helps feed cancer cells.

We all have cancer cells but whether we develop cancer at some point or not depends on how “well” we feed those existing cancer cells.

Refined sugar is the perfect food for that and should be avoided, or better yet, absolutely eliminated from our diets.

High-fructose corn syrup, or HFCS, is likely the worst type of refined sugar found in everyday foods. HFCS is found in all “sweets”, from sodas, juices, sauces, cookies, pies and cakes and the only way to avoid it is to stop eating sweets. Healthier versions of sugar are found in fresh fruits, and fresh fruits should be the only source of sugar in anyone’s diet.

    Some repeat “common wisdom” to appear expert. Why would fruit contain atrazine which is fatal to every fruiting plant?

    Bruce Ames (of the Ames test for mutagens) found that plants protect themselves. Even fruits contain compounds toxic or distasteful to insects and small mammals that would digest rather than spread seeds.

    Omnivores such as humans can generally detoxify them but they remain toxic to carnivores such as cats and dogs. Natural constituents are not tested for safety and only rarely are banned (like safrole). Ames considered them and “natural” insecticides far greater risks than synthetic insecticides, herbicides or fungicides.

    The former affect multiple systems in multiple species while the latter are designed and tested against a single system in their target species. The chemicals being criticized have been proved safe for humans and domestic pets at levels found in food and those levels are regulated.

    To forego fruits and vegetables or to reduce consumption due to the higher price of “organics” will result in more rather than less disease.
