With ~1.5 million people diagnosed with some type of cancer everyyear, it’s time to look before you buy-
They used to contain diacetyl. Use of this chemical caused Conagra Foods to remove it from their brand of popcorn, ACT, because it was causing lung diseases in the workers at their factory.
2. Non-organic fruitsNon organic Fruits contain pesticides such as atrazine, thiodicarb, and organophosphates, as well as high nitrogen fertilizers.
Atrazine is banned in European countries but still used here. This is a weed killer that causes severe problems in humans, especially in our reproductive capabilities.
A 2009 study found that when pregnant women drank water contaminated with atrazine, their babies had reduced body weights.Conventional foods Apples oranges, strawberries, and grapes are probably the worst offenders with pesticides showing on more than 90 per cent positive pesticide residue.Washing fruit does not remove 100 per cent of the residue. Pesticides are toxic chemicals to insects as well as human beings.
3. Canned Tomatoes
A study published in May of 2013 by the Proceeding of the National Academy of Sciences -BPA affects working of genes inside the brain of rats.Remember lax FDA is concerned! but not banned it.
4 Foam cups contain styrene 'human carcinogen'
'I think it's important to keep in mind that this is a hazard assessment,' Dr Jane Henney, who chaired the research council's committee of experts, told Newsday.
The declaration means there is 'scientific evidence suggesting that styrene causes cancer, but there may be alternative explanations, such as chance, bias or confounding factors', explained Dr Henney, who led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration during the Clinton era.

5 Processed Meat-
which make them, look appealing and fresh but are carcinogens. Do not eat Smoking meats as it give you tar that from the smoking process.
6. Farmed Salmon-
60% These fish are fed unnatural diets and are contaminated with chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides, and other known carcinogens. They live in very crowded conditions which results in these fish having 30 times the number of sea lice than wild salmon.Also contains PCB’s, mercury, and cancer causing dioxins.
7 Potato Chips-
If potaotes are superheated, it contains acrylamide, a known carcinogen that is also found in cigarettes.Alternative- USED BAKED CHIPS.
Foods that are cured by use of nitrates or nitrites act as preservatives as well as adding color to the meat. Although nitrates do not cause cancer in and of themselves, under certain conditions these chemicals change once they are inside the body into N-nitroso composites. It’s this N-nitroso that is associated with a greater increase the risk of developing cancers.Avoid- Meats such as bacon, sausage, bologna, and salami .
9.Processed Flour -
Are bleached by Chlorine so you really needs to avoid all breads .USE RICE.
10. GMO'S-Study by Dr. Pusztai at the Rowett Institute in Scotland, where rats were fed GMO foods, especially potatoes. ALL rats showed damaged immune systems, pre-cancerous cell growths, along with smaller brains and livers, in just the first 10 days of the project.
The FDA has NO testing procedures for GMO foods. The only human study ever published showed that those foreign genes that are present in GM food transfer to the DNA in the bacteria in our digestive systems.Unfortunately, almost all grains, including soybeans, wheat, and corn, have been grown via GMO’s. USE RICE.
GMO’s do not have to be listed on food labels, so read carefully and look for labels that state the food is GMO free.
11. Artificial Sweatners
There are numerous studies that show people who consume artificial sweeteners on a regular basis, such as in sodas, or coffee sweeteners, actually gain weight and make you diabetic.There is mounting evidence that the chemicals that make up these sweeteners, especially aspartame, break down in the body into a deadly toxin called DKP. When your stomach processes this chemical, it in turn produces chemicals that can cause cancer, especially brain tumors. LINK
STOP ALL FOODS ATHT SAYS-DIET FOOD,artificial sugar.DO NOT USE LOW FAT dressing also.
12. Excessive alcohol-
Alcohol use is the second leading cause of cancer, right behind tobacco use. While a moderate or low consumption of alcohol can be healthy and lead to a reduced risk of heart disease, excessive drinking is known to cause heart failure, stroke, and sudden death. In 2007, experts working for the World Health Organizations International Agency for Research on Cancer found evidence to state that excessive alcohol use is the main cause of mouth, esophagus, liver, colon, mouth, rectum, and female breast cancers.
13 Red Meat-
In a study done over a 10 year period, eating red meat every day, even a small amount, such as that quarter pound hamburger you like to enjoy at lunch, increased a man’s risk of dying from cancer by 22 percent and a woman’s chance by 20 percent. A separate research study has shown that eating a lot of red meat increased the risk of breast, prostate, and colon cancer.Red meat seems particularly dangerous when talking about colon cancer. A study done in the US followed almost 150,000 people between the ages of 50 and 74. This study showed that the long term consumption of red meat significantly increased the amount of colon cancer found in the subjects studied. On the other hand, the long term consumption of fish and poultry appeared to be protective in nature.
