The 15 Cancer Causing Foods You Probably Eat Every Day

June 21, 2017


5. Microwave Popcorn



What’s a movie without popcorn? This convenient, relatively healthy snack is seemingly harmless. The culprit here isn’t the popcorn itself, but the bag that it’s microwaved in.

Typically, microwave popcorn bags are lined with a chemical referred to as perfluorooctanoic acid (or PFOA). Quite a mouthful, right? This toxin is more commonly known to exist in Teflon.

A shocking study from the University of California found that this toxin can be linked to infertility in women.

In addition to this, PFOA has been found to significantly increase the risk of liver, bladder, kidney, and testicular cancer in humans in several other studies.

In some bags of popcorn, even the popcorn itself has been tainted with fat loaded soybean oil as well as a chemical called diacetyl. This chemical was so harmful that some companies have banned it from their factories due to workers developing lung diseases after working with it.

    Instead of finding cure for cancer, is is important to find the cause.There are many people who believe that advertising of good food is honest.Nothing artificial in food processing is good, but more harmful.Practically every thing we eat is harmful because it is not natural. Learn to eat fresh fruits, vegetables, and grains and do normal exercise instead of joining fitness institutes. Deep breathing is a very good exercise without any cost.Ron.

      Ron, Any chance you can give me a good set of exercises to do at my Home. I’m age 72 and have haqd two cancer operations. One for Skin Cancer. I used to surf a lot and the other operation was on my Colon. Since that time a little over a year has passed and No re-occurance has happened. I’d like to work out at Home but do not know what exercises should be my choice, please help! Thanking you in advance,Stuart

        Ron, I suggest tai-chi and chi gong. Both promote balance, coordination, and flexibility an tension release. Some senior and community centers offer them. Both involve slow and rhythmic movements w/o the use of force or heavy lifting.

    Tell everybody to look for High Fructose Corn Syrup in the ingredients before buying the product. FCS fools the brain. The brain does not recognize FCS and stores it as fat. It is in DIET drinks, so people think they will lose weight by drinking it. What a shame and it is not even listed on sodas! That should be outlawed!

    Pretty much what doesn’t cause cancer anymore? All these chemicals everywhere. Even proved the chemicals on our furniture does it.

    I think pollution will kill most of us of before most of these will. Stop China from producing all this throw away **** and America from living over the top. Then we can start thinking about what we eat.

    Fresh fruits and vegetables from local farms that follow organic practices ( for example no pesticides sprayed on apples or other vegetables and fruit. )

    The main thing in all of this information, is not to say like Adam and Keith, that everything is so tainted with chemicals these days, so what’s the point.
    This article is excellent in the sense that it gives out good info (I already know about these tainted foods, and I have adjusted my life style accordingly!), but also and more importantly; it should make you think! Use your God-given ability to think and reason; find out what is good for you and what is not. It is absolutely possible to live without these corrupted foods! Find substitutes, natural foods untainted by the food industry!
