Today, I want to cover the six main foods that can potentially cause cancer. However, many other factors can trigger cancer, including:
• Exposure to environmental toxins such as pesticides, radon, and cleaning chemicals
• Old age and age-related changes in the body’s cells
• Viruses, fungi, parasites, and bacteria
• Pollution

Six foods that may cause cancer:
1. Alcohol: Chronic alcohol exposure can damage your mitochondria, which can lead to cancer.

2. Trans fats: These are artificially produced fats commonly found in fried foods and processed snacks. They have been linked to an increased risk of cancer and other health issues.

3. Burnt or charred meat: Harmful chemicals such as heterocyclic amines (HCA) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) can be formed when meat is cooked at high temperatures. These have been linked to various types of cancer. Add garlic or rosemary to your meat while cooking to reduce your risk.

4. Advanced glycation end products (AGEs): These are compounds formed when protein and sugar are heated together. Foods high in AGEs include barbecued meats, fried foods, and ice cream.

5. Processed meats: These can contain nitrates, which have been associated with an increased risk of cancer. It’s important to note that grass-fed and grass-finished meat differs from processed meat. Therefore, it’s important to choose quality sources of meat.

6. Ultra-processed or junk foods: These foods are highly refined and are high in sugar, unhealthy fats, and chemicals. They can cause inflammation and deplete our vitamin and mineral reserves.

It’s important to look out for Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) foods that are unhealthy, such as:
• Maltodextrin
• Modified starch
• High fructose corn syrup
• Corn oil
• Soy oil
• Canola oil
• Corn syrup
