3 Cancer Causing Foods To NEVER Eat

“You are what you eat.” We’ve heard it so many times.

We work hard to make sure the food we put into our bodies is filled with the vitamins and minerals we need to be fit and strong. We exercise and live a healthy lifestyle.

Unfortunately, a lot of us are also eating things that aren’t good for us, and that may be doing us real harm.

Choosing foods to help you lose weight or lower your risk of cancer and other health issues is great, BUT if you’re also constantly eating things that are bad for you then you may be wasting your time.

It’s time to admit that we can’t just add more veggies to our diet. We need to also cut out the more dangerous foods. Do you know what they are, and why?

3 Cancer Causing Foods That We Shouldn't Eat

1. Refined Sugar

When you eat foods that contain high fructose corn syrup or other refined sugars, you put yourself at risk of insulin spikes. Though our body needs sugar for energy, refined sugars break down more quickly and turn to fat more easily.

Not only does that put you at greater risk of obesity, but some studies have shown that the extra sugar that is floating around in your blood stream feeds cancer cells and makes them grow and spread more quickly.

Solution: To sweeten your food, choose raw honey, 100% pure maple syrup or coconut sugar.

2. Processed and Grilled Meats

We all may have been raised on lunch meat, hot dogs, and bacon, but getting them out of your diet is a very good idea.

All of these are processed meats, and the preservatives that help them last a long time do you a world of harm. These preservatives are called nitrates, and they don’t flush out of our bodies. Instead they stay in your cells and cause damage over a long period of time.

Nitrates not only come from chemicals – they also form when food is cooked at a high temperature or smoked. This turn them into nitrites, which are known carcinogens. The same is true of red meat that is cooked on a grill.

Solution: Choose fresh turkey, chicken or fish for your protein source. And don't forget your vegetarian protein options- they're delicious too!

I'm not saying you should never enjoy a steak on the grill.

Just choose pasture raised, chemical free meat and cook over a low heat. Also enjoy it rare or medium rare to lessen carcinogens.

The same goes for bacon. Enjoy in moderation and look for 100% natural, pasture raised and nitrate free.

3. White Flour

White flour is highly refined. Both the bran and the germ have been removed. Chemicals are usually used to bleach it and make it look whiter.

Though this makes foods made with white flour light and airy, it also means that it has little nutritional value. It also leaves it with a high glycemic index. This means that the body makes insulin, which feeds cancer cells in the same way that refined sugar does.

Don't be fooled in thinking wheat flour is any better. You don't have to be diagnosed with Celiac disease to benefit from avoiding gluten.

White flour is in many of our favorite foods, including bagels, white rice and pasta, but it is easy to find replacements that eliminate the risk. There are healthier options for bread and pasta and they're tasty too!

Solution: Choose healthier brown rice or quinoa based pastas and eat sprouted grain breads.

It's not that hard to make smart choices that eliminate these cancer causing foods.
