Cancer Causing Foods You Should Avoid
  • Foods that are crisp and brown: When certain foods, such as potatoes, are heated to high temperatures, they may release a chemical called Acrylamide. Along with tobacco smoke, a lot of the things you buy contain Acrylamide.
  • Bacon, salami, pepperoni, and sausage are all examples of processed meat that can increase your risk of developing colon cancer. After reviewing more than 800 papers, experts came to that conclusion. Limit your intake of salted, fermented, cured, or smoked foods.
  • White Flour: It's important to understand the processing of commercially produced white flour (also known as bleached flour). The seeds were first given a fungicide treatment. Second, pesticides are sprayed on them. They are then kept in containers that have been treated with pesticides. The amount of toxins in your body will rise as a result of the combination of all these chemicals. The flour is combined with chlorine oxide in the form of chlorine gas to maintain it white.
  • Popcorn made in a microwave is generally pretty healthy, but the method of popping it makes it quite unhealthy. PFOA, also known as perfluorooctanoic acid, is used to line microwave packets. Consuming PFOA promotes pancreatic, bladder, liver, testicular, and kidney cancer, claims the research.
  • Drinking soda: Because soda contains a lot of sugar, it can cause insulin resistance, weight gain, and swelling. Additionally, it contains additives and substances that raise the risk of cancer, such as 4-MI (4-methylimidazole).

Once cancer is detected, it is always advisable to seek treatment from the best cancer hospital in Delhi NCR.
