A list of foods that you should stop eating immediately.
We’ve provided alternatives so that you can still eat these foods, but in a healthy way.
Considered as a healthy go-anywhere protein-packed snack, most commercially produced beef jerky contains nitrites that have been proven to contribute to cancer.
Nitrites are found in other foods, but beef jerky has much more of them per ounce than many other foods.
Cancer-Causing Agent: Nitrites in beef jerky have been linked to cancer, and they are added to give the jerky its color and also to preserve it and keep it fresh for months as it sits on store shelves.
One way is to simply eat fresh or frozen food, or buy food in cans that specifically state that they are BPA-free. When there’s a controversy this big you can bet that it’s between advocates that rallying for consumer protection and Big Food that wants to maintain the status quo and their profit margins.
Look for foods that are 100% organic, or contain the “Non-GMO Project Verified” seal on it to be sure that the food you’re getting is free of GMOs. Why get involved in the debate over the harmful effects of GMOswhen you can simply avoid them and not worry about it anymore?
Cancer-Causing Agent:Herbicides and pesticides that have been shown to cause cancer, among other diseases, are in GMO food from conventional produce to packaged goods.
Before you enjoy that refreshing cola you may want to stop to consider what’s in it. In order to give it the distinctive brown color that shoppers have come to expect, cola manufacturers have been adding in a dye that contains a chemical that’s been found to cause cancer.
Cancer-Causing Agent: 4-MI (4-methylimidazole) is what gives cola its classic caramel color, and is also directly linked to cancer in thousands of individual cases.
Many diet foods use artificial sweeteners to provide you the taste you’re looking for without having an effect on the number of sugar grams and calories. These artificial sweeteners are chemicals that have been created in a lab and have a toxic effect on the body.
Cancer-Causing Agent: Aspartame. the most widely used artificial sweetener, has been linked to cancer for years, despite the FDA and other groups citing clinical trials that say there isn’t enough clear evidence to pull the toxin from the food supply.
Walk down any snack aisle in any grocery store and you’ll be bombarded by an array of snacks, each one packaged to look absolutely delicious, and each contributing to the formation of cancer.
The problem occurs during the frying process, and since these are pre-packaged snacks consumers often lose sight of the fact that they’ve been deep fried, much like french fries. The deep frying process that browns the snack and makes it crisp is the same process that forms cancer-causing substances that stay with the food.
Cancer-Causing Agent: Glycidamide created by the metabolizing of Acrylamide, a substance produced from frying foods at high temperatures, is theorized as the cancer-causer for many snacks sold in stores today.
