15 Cancer Causing Foods You Have To Stop Eating

You are likely aware that eating junk food is a major risk factor for cancer. But did you know that some so-called health foods are actually carcinogens in disguise?

Or that certain ingredients found in virtually all packaged foods present a serious health risk?

By being an informed consumer, we can help influence for good the types of products that end up on our grocery shelves, and enjoy better health to boot.

Read on to discover 15 very common foods known to increase cancer risk, along with some healthier alternatives.

1. Soda
Not only is soda jampacked with sugar – cancer’s fuel of choice – but it often also contains caramel color. This artificial coloring has the carcinogenic chemical 4-MEI as a byproduct. Laboratory tests show that 4-MEI shows up in sodas with caramel color.

Alternatives – Water is always best, but if you really crave the sweet, bubbly hit of soda, choose a natural brand without caramel color.

2. Grilled red meat
While a nice char on that steak may taste good, the …

This Is Used By Many Women, And It Doubles The Risk Of Ovarian Cancer

All women should know that the vagina cleans itself and stop douching it because latest studies show that it increases the risk of ovarian cancer. In the past, douching has been linked to increased occurrence of vaginal infections and still 25% of women use this technique to clean their private parts. However, the latest studies show that we need to put an end to this practice because it can increase the risk of ovarian tumors.

This Is Used By Many Women, And It Doubles The Risk Of Ovarian Cancer

“And while gynecologists urge women not to douche the vagina with irrigator, they see a health benefit in it and a way to maintain their  hygiene,” says Joelle Brown, an epidemiologist, and adds that it’s vital to stop douching.

The problem with ovarian cancer is that its symptoms are very vague and it is usually diagnosed in the late stages, that’s why it’s dubbed the silent killer. There was a study published in the journal of Epidemiology which studied 41 000 women from USA and Puerto Rico in 2013.

The women were aged 35-74 and some had a family history of tumors. When the study started all the women had a clean bill of health. After a year, in 2014, 154 subjects were diagnosed with ovarian tumor. The women who used douching for a year had doubled their risk of ovarian cancer and this risk was even higher for those who had a family history of the disease.

Clarice Veinberg of the Environmental Health Research Institute from South Carolina says that no previous study had discovered this connection. She continues by adding that douching the vagina is completely unnecessary and that it disrupts the natural balance inside. It can cause bacterial infections and damage to the reproductive system. She’s surprised why so many women still use it even though it’s health detrimental.

If you want to avoid complications and health problems you should only wash your private parts with warm water and sometimes soap. Anything that’s perfumed and full of chemicals can damage your reproductive organs beyond repair.
