Many of the best tasting foods are the worst for us. Because these days, foods are artificially constructed to ramp up the flavors we naturally crave. Such foods often put consumers’ health at risk. Check out our list of some cancer causing foods to avoid, or at least consume in moderation.
Microwave popcorn: Convenient way of popping popcorn makes it extremely unhealthy. The reason is that those microwave bags are lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). Many studies have revealed that consuming PFOA can cause cancers of the kidney, bladder, liver, pancreas, and testicles.
Soda: Soda is not the healthiest due to shockingly high levels of sugar, which contributes to weight gain, inflammation, and insulin resistance. Soda also contains artificial colorings and chemicals that are known to increase cancer risk.
Canned foods: The problem with canned foods is the storage. Almost all aluminum cans are lined with cancer causing bisphenol-A, or BPA for short. Tomatoes and other foods with high acidity are especially dangerous to eat out of a can because the acid tends to leech BPA directly into the food at high levels.
Potato chips: Not only are chips exceedingly high in fat and sodium, they also contain artificial flavors, preservatives, and food colors that the body just can’t recognize as food.
