EATING PROCESSED FOODS – Unfortunately not all manufacturers have your best interests in mind when making these types of foods. Scientists have found a link between those who enjoy processed foods daily, and a high risk of developing cancer.
RED MEAT – There’s something called Haem or the haem protein in red meat which is what gives it its red colour. Unfortunately this same protein can hurt the lining in your intestines. Unfortunately red meat ups your risk of colorectal cancer.
PROCESSED MEATS – This includes hot dogs, lunch meats or deli meats, bacon, basically any meat that has been altered in some sort of way. Consuming these on a regular basis can increase the risk of colon cancer.
SUGAR – Having a steady diet of sugary foods can lead to cancer of the stomach, specificallly your intestine. Too much sugar, all the times can trigger the body to release a protein that can trigger the first step to cells becoming cancerous.
GRILLING FOOD – Blackening or grilling your food, especially things like chicken, fish, pork or beef, at super high temperatures can release compounds that have been linked to cancer.
BOOZE – Studies show that one of four alcohol related deaths around the world are caused by some form of cancer.
PLASTIC CONTAINERS – There’s something in plastic called phthalates which is the stuff that makes plastic flexible and bendy. Unfortunately our body doesn’t like these things and they can mess with our system and eventually up the risk of cancer.
COMMON DIET MISTAKES – Studies suggest that avoiding whole grains and lowering your intake of dairy are the habits linked to some of the most preventable types of cancers. Some even suggest that these types of diets are fairly risky and can be just as bad as someone who drinks heavily.
