15. Canned Tomatoes
Though fresh organic tomatoes help the body resist infections and actually fight cancer, canned tomatoes are carcinogenic (cancer causing) food. This is because the lining of food cans contains Bisphenol A (BPA) which is considered a harmful substance by the Canadian Cancer Society.
Tomatoes are especially bad in cans because they are acidic which promotes leaching of chemical BPA out of the lining into canned tomatoes. Since the skin of tomatoes is so thin and absorbent, this unassuming food isn’t as healthy as we think, due to them being so heavily sprayed with pesticides. Therefore, it will always be better to consume tomatoes fresh and organically grown.
