15 Cancer Causing Foods You Could Be Eating Everyday

It is sad but true that many of the best tasting foods are the worst for us. That’s because they are artificially constructed to ramp up the flavors we naturally crave – sugar and salt – to levels never found in nature. In other cases, it is the growing or packaging processes that cut corners and put consumers’ health at risk.


Don’t let the mega-food producers of the world play around with your family’s safety! Check out our list of 15 cancer causing foods to avoid, or at least consume in moderation.

Microwave popcorn
Popcorn in general is a relatively healthy snack, so it’s really too bad that the most convenient way of popping it actually makes it extremely unhealthy. The reason is that those microwave bags are lined with a chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA).

Many studies have revealed that consuming PFOA can cause cancers of the kidney, bladder, liver, pancreas, and testicles.

Soda
You already know that soda in general is not the healthiest due to shockingly high levels of…

How To Detox Aluminum From The Body

Aluminum is the earth's most abundant metal. In its natural state, it is not harmful. Because it is so abundant, it is used in many of our everyday products. As aluminum is altered and overused, it builds up in our body tissues and organs, leading to aluminum toxicity. This can lead to many troublesome conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, liver and skin diseases, gastrointestinal trouble, heartburn, learning disorders and disabilities, and fatigue.

How To Detox Aluminum From The Body

Things You'll Need
Fresh lemons Apple pectin Kelp supplements Turmeric Foot soak basin Epsom salts Sea salt

Additions
Add apple pectin to your daily routine. Apple pectin binds with metals in the body and prevents them from absorbing into the tissues, and excretes them out of the system. You can get apple pectin straight from a fresh, raw apple, or buy it in powder or tablet form where supplements are sold.

Have some lemon juice. Squeezing half of a fresh lemon in a cup of warm water twice a day is one of the best ways to help your body detoxify from metals such as aluminum. The citric acid in the lemon juice helps move the metals out of the cells and tissues and back into the system where it can then be eliminated.


Kelp (seaweed) helps with body detoxification by absorbing metals in the body, just like it absorbs metals in the ocean. This absorption of them prevents them from being absorbed by the body and aids in excreting them. The easiest way to add kelp to your daily routine is as a nutritional supplement, available from most health food or nutrition stores.

Turmeric is a spice that is also an anti-oxidant that fights free radicals and toxic substances. It gently detoxes the liver and kidneys, both of which are affected by aluminum. Turmeric is available as a supplement or can be added to foods as a powdered spice.

Give yourself a detox bath. Whether you soak just your feet--or your whole body--a detox bath will help draw toxins such as aluminum out of the tissues and out of the body. To detox through your feet, fill a foot basin with water as hot as you can comfortably stand. Add 1/2 cup of Epsom salt and 1/2 cup of sea salt. Soak feet for at least 35 minutes or until water cools. Rinse feet with lukewarm water, and gently rub the skin dry to remove expelled toxins.

What to Eliminate
Eliminate aluminum containing health and beauty products. Read the labels on deoderants, toothpastes, and even over the counter antacids. All contain aluminum that can add up to toxic levels in the body.

Eliminate aluminum cookware. Most modern cookware is made of aluminum, and pots and pans impart aluminum into our foods. Use stainless steel or glassware to prevent adding more aluminum to your body while you are detoxing.

Beware of food additives. Read your food labels as diligently as health and beauty product labels. Certain flours, baking powders and other additives contain high amounts of aluminum. They should be avoided.

Eliminate drinking from aluminum cans. Levels of aluminum leak into the products they contain.
