Six decades ago, it would have been unexplainably hard to imagine that food item that we commonly eat can actually increase the risk factors of cancer in our bodies. However, over the past few decades, the food manufacturing industry has increased its reliance on chemical processing, artificial colors, flavors and preservatives, hydrogenated oils and even biotechnology.
Back in the day, people use to eat healthy, organic produce and grass-fed meat, because these were the only items that were available to them for consumption. Recent medical and scientific research reveals that almost every other food item that we commonly consume is linked with cancer, which makes it increasingly overwhelming to focus on creating cancer prevention and a healthy diet.
We VIRALBUZZ will walk you on the 16 most commonly consumed food items that have been scientifically proven to have a direct association with increases in the risk factors of cancers, along with recommending some healthier alternatives.
Here, take a look at the 16 food items loaded with carcinogens and chemicals that we commonly eat:
16. Hydrogenated oils
Hydrogenated oils are unnaturally extracted vegetable oil, which unlike soy, olive oil or canola oil, cannot be extracted without chemicals. These oils are widely used in restaurants, bakeries and in many food items in our own pantries, just to preserve items and give them a longer shelf life.
The consumption of hydrogenated oils is associated with birth defects, heart ailments, cancer and other life-threatening ailments. It is important to pick out healthier oils, such as corn, coconut oil and olive oil, and be sure to steer clear of products prepared in hydrogenated oils.
