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 …

The Anti-Cancer Diet: Cancer Fighting Foods To Help Prevent Cancer (Evidence Based)

Enjoying a healthy diet can do much to lower your risk of developing serious diseases such as cancer. Including foods in your diet such as plenty of green leafy vegetables, fruits, berries, nuts, and oily fish can help prevent many health issues. Although no single food can stop cancer, consuming more “cancer-fighting foods” in your diet can help reduce your risk of developing the disease.


The best foods in a cancer prevention diet contain vitamins and antioxidants that help to strengthen your immune system. The cancer protection diet benefits come from combining a variety of foods that have anticancer properties.

There is also a lot of scientific data on foods that fight cancer. Natural cancer-fighting compounds such as lycopene, phytochemicals, carotenoids, sulfur, and fiber are found in many foods. Eating the right combination of these anti-cancer foods can make a difference in helping to prevent diseases such as cancer.

In this article, you will learn about the best cancer-killing…

Why Your Digestive System Doesn't Function Properly And How To Fix It

Your digestive system plays a major role in the overall health of your body. Poor or slow digestion are particularly common in Western society and have become part of the daily routine for many of us, but in normal condition they are not supposed to appear at all. Food may not get digested properly if you suffer from gastroparesis, stress, or enzyme deficiency. Some of the common symptoms of poor digestion are abdominal pain and bloating, irritable bowel and constipation.


How Long Does It Take to Digest Your Food?
According to doctors from the Mayo Clinic, digestion time varies between individuals, but on average it takes 53 hours for food to be completely digested. This is also called gastrointestinal transit time (GITT) which is the time from eating a meal to elimination in stool.

After you eat a meal it takes six to eight hours for food to go through your stomach and small intestine.

The average transit time through just the large intestine (colon) is called delayed colon transit an…

Scientists Reveal The Connection Between Sugar And Cancer

The role of sugar in the formation, growth and metastasis of cancer cells is a topic that has often divided the scientific community. While the Canadian Cancer Society explicitly states that eating sugar does not make cancer cells grow faster, other trustworthy sources disagree and claim just the opposite.

A recent research published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation now provides experimental evidence that suggest the anti-sugar camp was right all along.


The Warburg Effect
The so called Warburg effect describes how most cancer cells produce energy through aerobic glycolysis, which means that they metabolize sugar. Normal tissue has very low glycolitic rates; about 200 times lower than the fast growing cancer cells.

The process was named after Otto Warburg, who was the first to hypothesize that this change in metabolism is the fundamental cause of cancer.

Even if Warburg’s theory received a lot of publicity when it was published and even won him a Nobel Prize, it was later sidetr…

12 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Lung Health Today

Without your lungs, you couldn’t breathe, and without breath, you cease to exist. The lungs are part of the respiratory system, working with other organs and tissues to help you breathe. Every cell in the body needs oxygen to live, and the lungs are what move oxygen into the bloodstream where it’s carried throughout the body when you inhale. When you exhale, the waste, in the form of carbon dioxide, is removed.


They do a lot more than that too. The lungs make up a significant part of the immune system. Infection-causing microbes and pollutants are captured by mucus and moved upward by tiny cilia so that we can cough it out. Sneezing is yet another way lungs help us to get rid of infection or pollution, and often before the invaders are able to make it past the sinuses.

All of this is what makes the lungs so important – if they aren’t in good shape, your health suffers, so, while you might take them for granted, it’s essential to do everything you can to keep your lungs in good health.

Burn Bay Leaves in The House And See What Happens After 10 Minutes

If you’ve ever stepped into a yoga studio or new age bookshop, you may have noticed that these places sometimes have a very particular smell.

This is because many of these locations regularly practice smudging, a Native American tradition that uses the smoke of sacred herbs to purify a room. This ritual is similar to the act of burning incense.


While the practice of smudging is commonly associated with sage, there are other herbs you can use and more concrete benefits you can enjoy.
