(TIML NEWS) Almost 1.5 million people have been reported to be diagnosed with cancer in 2015. Most people become aware of the health diet and care about what kinds of food we should eat or avoid. Here we compile some food that you eat every day may cause cancer.
1. Canned Tomatoes
Canned foods are lined with the chemical substance called bisphenol-A, or BPA, which has been proven to affect how the genes work inside the brain of rats by the NAS. Tomatoes are exceptionally high in acidity, which causes BPA to be absorbed from the lining of the can into the tomatoes themselves. Be safe and cook fresh if you like tomatoes.
2. Farmed Salmon
Although fish is normally a healthy food, farmed salmon is one you should avoid. These fish live in very crowded conditions which result in having 30 times the number of sea lice than wild salmon. To look reddish pink, they are even fed chemicals. Also, they contain less omega-3, high levels of PCBs, mercury, and cancer-causing dioxins. Try to avoid it and choose wild fish.
3. Processed Meats
When making processed meats like sausages, hot dogs and bacon, excessive salts and chemicals are used that are harmful to your health. They contain a lot of additives, including sodium nitrates, which make them look appealing and fresh but are well-known carcinogens.
4. Microwave Popcorn
The microwave popcorn bags are lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA). Exposure to PFOA will increase your risk of kidney, bladder, liver, pancreas and testicular cancers. When making popcorn, manufacturers use soybean oil (a GMO product) and various preservatives like propyl gallate, a chemical that may cause stomach problems and skin rashes.
5. Potato Chips
Potato chips are high in both fat and calories which cause obesity and even high blood pressure. Studies have found that eating just one ounce of potato chips per day caused an average two pound weight gain. To make it taste great, manufacturers add numerous preservatives. What’s more, the high temperature under which they are prepared causes a carcinogenic by-product called acrylamide.
