Medical experts say cancer is a set of many bad issues gathered.
Such triggers might be due to:
- Lifestyle (bad diet, inactivity, tobacco)
- Specific problems and infections
- environment problems; chemicals and radiation.
Experts say that a bad diet and no activity can increase the risk of cancer. It was said by the World Center Research Fund that almost 20% of all American diets are unhealthy, also there is no workouts, there is obesity and alcohol too.
Like other health issues, this CAN be prevented so lower the risk by:
- having healthy foods and organic produce
- no smoking
- healthy weight
Refined foods and sugars
It is know that such foods have artificial items and sugars and also corn syrup, all unhealthy. Such foods raise the insulin and make cancer grow faster. In 2006, the American Society for Clinical Nutrition published that people who ate a lot of such foods had more pancreas cancer risk than the rest. So, replace them with stevia, honey, molasses, maple syrup and jiggery.
Red processed meat
They are loaded with chemicals and preservatives; bacon, sausage, salami, ham and more. Also they have loads of unhealthy – SALT. The Nutrition and Cancer journal said that too much of this meat can cause colorectal cancer. Also these meats increase prostate cancer too. Remove such foods and eat grass-fed meat.
Pickled and smoked foods
Smoked meats are unhealthy due to the smoking process. Pickled foods have n-nitroso nitrates and these all cause cancer. Also such foods have many additives for the shelf life. Excess such foods causes cell damage and cancer.
These days many items are made with white flour. But, such items have loads of carbs and they are not so healthy. Studies showed that women who had too much carbs had more breast cancer risks. This also raised the blood sugar fast. Replace this with quinoa, whole-wheat, almond and barley flour.
This oil after the manufacturing, is like poison. They are gotten from chemical processes of veggies and this is all for a longer shelf-life. Also they have trans fats and omega 6 fats. A bit of these fats can be good. But excess of it, can damage the cells and cause cancer, like skin cancer. Also, the trans fats increase risk of colorectal, breast and prostate cancer. You see, such oils harm you and try to opt for olive, coconut and palm oils.
They have a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid and this is in the toxin bags for the microwave. Studies claimed that this is awful and those who were exposed to PFOA had more risk of bladder and kidney cancer. Another study said that this chemical might make women infertile. Sadly these bags also have GMOs and propyl gallate.
There is a difference between wild and farmed salmon. The wild one is healthy and farmed is carcinogenic. Also, this farmed salmon increases risk of cancer. Precisely, Science Magazine made a study where many chemicals were exposed in this farmed fish. Some were the toxaphene, dioxins, flame retardants, mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls. When you buy salmon, always see the labels and know that farmed is cheaper.
The process of making these chips means using oils, salt and high heat, thus creating acrylamide, a carcinogen. The Journal of Cancer published that this item in the chips can cause prostate, ovarian, breast and digestive cancer. All of us know that chips have calories, oils, salt and worsen the pressure, cholesterol and make us gain weight. Try to make healthy chips of apple and banana.
