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.

Drink This Juice For Glowing Skin

The skin becomes dull and saggy because collagen decreases in it as we get on in years. Since I, myself, have collagen deficiency, I want to share this great recipe with you, so you can boost your collagen production too.


Why is this juice special?
Well, the ingredients you use make it, so to say, “stand aloof” from other cosmetic skin beauty enhancers. Although you may be familiar with the nutritive aspects of the veggies needed, I still want to give you some tips about them.

1. Let me start with the red cabbage
Maybe you aren’t accustomed to red cabbage, but it is very high in vitamin C, just like oranges and limes are. It has powerful antioxidants, which protect the forefront skin cells from free radical damage. Trust me, your skin will be radiant and supple if it is well provided with these substances. And beautiful skin is so conspicuous, that it simply doesn’t go without notice!

2. Beetroot
Beetroot contains zinc and copper which are vital elements for a healthier skin. Beetroot also helps cleanse and restore the liver well-being, which is considered a primary detoxifying organ. What you should learn now is that skin and liver health are closely related!


3. Ginger
It reduces inflammation and helps if you have any redness or puffiness on your facial skin. Recent lab testing has shown that ginger contains pharmacological properties of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

4. Cucumber
It has enormous hydrating effect since it contains 96% water. Nothing is more important for a soft and supple skin than water. I also find it strange that cucumbers haven’t received as much hype as other veggies in terms of overall health benefits.

This widely cultivated food provides us with a unique combination of nutrients. At the top of the phytonutrient list for cucumbers are cucurbitacins, lignans and flavonoids. These 3 types of phytonutrients present in cucumbers bring us valuable antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits.

5. Carrot
It provides us with antioxidant beta-carotene which is great for skin. One more thing about carrots: these delicious root vegetables are a source of a wide variety of antioxidants and other health-supporting nutrients as well.
