With over half of cancers being avoidable, it seems that we need to take a closer look at what we are subjecting our bodies to that might be at the root of the cancer epidemic. One of the greatest exposures to cancer is in what we eat. Below you’ll see 5 cancer causing foods to avoid.
1. Hydrogenated Oils
Hydrogenated oils, like vegetable oil, contain trans fats. It’s considered to be the worst type of fat there is. It’s known to cause cancer, heart disease, and immune system problems. In fact, there is no safe amount of trans fats in your diet, so avoiding this cancer causing food altogether would be advised. You can avoid hydrogenated oil but instead choosing coconut, palm, or olive oil. Organic butter is a better option as well.
