Avoid these 10 Cancer-Causing Foods...

Cancer doesn’t just happen! Diet has A LOT to do with it. Take acrylamides for example. According to Dr. Fuhrman, acrylamides are cancer-causing compounds that form in fried, baked, roasted, grilled or barbequed food. You know. Bad stuff!

So, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that over-cooked food appears in this list of foods that increase cancer-risk. Via Care2:

  • All charred food, which create heterocyclic aromatic amines, known carcinogens. Even dark toast is suspect.
  • Well-done red meat. Medium or rare is better, little or no red meat is best.
  • Sugar, both white and brown–which is simply white sugar with molasses added.
  • Heavily salted, smoked and pickled foods, which lead to higher rates of stomach cancer.
  • Sodas/soft drinks, which pose health risks, both for what they contain–sugar and various additives–and for what they replace in the diet–beverages and foods that provide vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
  • French fries, chips and snack foods that contain trans fats.
  • Food and drink additives such as aspartame.
  • Excess alcohol.
  • Baked goods, for the acrylamide.
  • Farmed fish, which contains higher levels of toxins such as PCBs.

Cooked meats are a problem. The American Institute for Cancer Research just recommended that people STOP grilling meat and substitute veggies instead. Good idea, because a recent study linked saturated fat with prostate cancer-risk.

No doubt, things like alcohol, sugar and fake sugar should be avoided too. Be sure to check out Dr. Fuhrman’s list of horrible foods. You’ll see EVEN more similarities!
