According to recent research by the British Medical Institute, there are food products that increase the risk of cancer and people consume it every day. So far it has been known that obese people and those who consume alcohol in large quantities are most vulnerable.
But according to the latest findings, people in good health are also at risk, do not consume excessive alcohol and do not have a problem with their weight, but they consume meat products daily (bacon, ham, sausages, salami), red meat and salt.
Experts note that there is no safe amount of alcohol and that the red meat and meat preparations should be limited to one to two days a week and to give more space to vegetables, fruits, cereals, fish (sea fish max once a week), eggs and dairy products.
Nutritionists always keep an eye on what they enter in their body, they know to say that they are honored sometimes with products that can not be consumed, but in those few that you now read, they swear that they never eat them. The reason is clear and loud: they are carcinogenic.
Avoid these 8 groceries:
1. Refined and sugary foods
Adding large quantities of highly refined sugar to our diet – the exponential increase in the amount of sugar we consume is unbelievable. “Despite the fact that our genes developed in an environment where a person consumed 2 kg of honey annually, the consumption of sugar per person grew to 5 kg per year in 1830 to a shocking figure of 70 kg per year by the end of the twentieth century!”
To reduce: foods with a high glycemic index (sugar, white flour etc), and replaced with: honey, maple syrup, fruit, flour and powders with a low glycemic index.
2. Red processed meats
Both sodium nitrite and sodium nitrate, which are contained in processed meat products, can significantly increase the risk of cancer. These are salami, sausages, ham, bacon. Preservatives and huge amounts of salt – these are just a fraction of the other things that absorb when we consume vacuumed meat. The comparison that scientists do is that if a person eats a hot dog or hamburger every day, he will live 20 years less. This is far more dangerous than if it smokes but is a vegetarian.
Experts recommend that we buy only meat, for whose origins we are confident.
3. Smoked/pickled food
The process of smoking the meat leaves toxins in the meat. This is unhealthy for your organism.
Also, pickled foods contain an abundance of carcinogenic ingredients that cause cancer. These foods could be contaminated with microorganisms during the processing process. Consumption of this food may cause an ulcer, nasopharyngitis (upper respiratory tract inflammation), hypertension, and may damage the stomach.
4. White flour
It can be harmful because it contains sugar, and because of this, white bread is harmful. Scientists claim that refined white flour is not healthy because of the high amount of carbohydrates it contains, and this is exactly what can cause cancer in the body or feed if it already exists.
5. Hydrogenated oils
These are oils that are otherwise used for processed foods because they increase the taste of quality and make them longer lasting, but their structure is such that it can cause cancer. This is mainly due to the fact that they are highly processed and when consumed in large quantities they seriously disturb your omega-6: omega -3 ratio.
It is recommended to use coconut oil or olive oil.
6. Microwave popcorn
Popcorns also enter the list of carcinogens. In fact, popcorns themselves do not cause cancer. The damage comes from the pouches in which they are sold and “burst”. They are made from extremely harmful carcinogenic chemicals that lead not only to infertility but also to cancer.
7. Farmed salmon
It not only contains significantly less vitamin D than wild salmon but also contains a huge amount of various contaminating substances, such as polychlorinated biphenyl (PCD), carcinogens and various pesticides.
8. Potato chips
We must not forget about the chip, which contains acrylamide – the most dangerous carcinogenic substance contained in times above the permitted dose in the fried fries. It may not be news to you, but the chips are not made from real potatoes. Ingredients such as rice, wheat, corn and potato flakes are mixed to obtain a dough molded in molds in a well-known form. Then fry in hot oil, dried, and in the finale sweeten with various spices.
As a substitute, you can make homemade sweet potato chips.
