A good diet helps prevent “about one third of the most common US cancers,” according to the American Institute for Cancer Research. The significance of avoiding specific foods associated with an elevated risk of cancer is emphasized by this. These are five examples of such foods:
Risk of cancer and heart disease has been associated with processed meats. Premature deaths could be prevented by reducing consumption.
Plastics and can linings made with bisphenol A (BPA), which is linked to cancer and other health problems.
Nitrites and nitrates, which are present in cured and smoked foods, can react with heat to produce chemicals that might cause cancer.
The bag lining of microwave popcorn contains PFOA, which is associated with several types of cancer.
Herbicide-treated genetically modified foods may raise cancer risk.
Sugar: Some cancers have been associated with diets high in sugar.
The danger of developing breast cancer is twofold increased when one consumes hydrogenated oils.
Sugary and artificially sweetened sodas are associated with an increased risk of cancer.
Protein Isolate from Soybeans: The majority of soybeans farmed in the United States are genetically modified, which raises concerns about their potential to stimulate cancer growth.
Chemically treated white flour has been associated with an increased risk of lung cancer.
