In the past it seemed as though people did not pay as much attention to the latest reports about what causes cancer because it appeared that just about everything from hair dryers to dinner plates were dangerous. It reached a point when people just rolled their eyes every time the newest cause of cancer had been discovered.

 

Well here’s where it gets interesting and disturbing at the same time… we are learning more and more each day that certain foods or ingredients that we consume actually have a strong link to cancer growth. This nothing to roll our eyes at! The current research is saying that many cancers are preventable if we make the necessary changes in our diet and lifestyle. I have basically become obsessed with this topic and almost ended up in divorce when I asked my husband to eliminate certain cancer causing foods out of his diet. Fortunately, he has been surviving just fine without these foods and so is our marriage.

 

I would like to share some basic information that both my cancer research hospital revealed and several cancer related websites have published over the past year.

 

Nitrates-found in hot dogs, packaged deli meats and bacon. – Nitrate free options are now available in many stores.

Fried foods such doughnuts and French fries.

BBQ food that is cooked quickly and at a high heat releases a cancer causing chemical. Not saying to avoid your annual neighborhood BBQ, but take the steps necessary to reduce this exposure by marinating your meat and using leaner, smaller cuts of meat. Maybe even ‘pre-cooking” the meat prior to placing it on the grill.

Trans Fat (Just bad for you for so many reasons)

Sugar

 

Altering the consumption of these foods is not that difficult anymore. Many stores have healthier alternatives.

 

Just something to consider before you grab that all too convenient donut on the way to work. :)

Survivor, Thanks for posting this subject. After Years and years of research I firmly believe that our diet of refined and processed foods (they are toxic to us)along with the exposure to toxic chemicals in our atmosphere, our water and being over stressed is slowly killing us much of it by cancers. We can offset this though by eliminating as much refined and processed foods as possible and sticking with organic foods, pure spring water, exercise, plenty of sunshine and stress reduction. In today's world we are bombarded with physical and emotional toxins that keep our bodies in a state of chronic inflammation. Organic whole foods detox our bodies, repair cellular mutations and help our bodies manage stress better. Eat foods from a plant and not made in a plant and watch the body excel in health!

I am excited to see that this research is coming more to the forefront and we can see how our lifestyle and dietary choices affect our health and prevent disease. I was fortunate to be exposed to this area of nutrition early in my career. I cannot imagine it any other way. It pains me to see where our food system is heading and I encourage each NutriBlaster to spread the knowledge they've gained here and share the positive experiences they've had firsthand from Blasting. Food is medicine :) Thank you for sharing this great post!
