1. Processed Meats

Processed MeatHot dogs, bacon, sausage and lunch meats are often preserved and processed with sodium nitrate and/or sodium nitrite, chemicals which give the meats their color and flavor and extend their shelf life. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) stated that the levels of nitrates and nitrites in foods pose a “major concern” and that more research is needed to determine the risk of dietary exposure.

GMO Corn2) Genetically-modified organisms (GMOs)

“It goes without saying that GMOs have no legitimate place in any cancer-free diet, especially now that both GMOs and the chemicals used to grow them have been shown to cause rapid tumor growth. But GMOs are everywhere, including in most food derivatives made from conventional corn, soybeans, and canola. You can avoid them by sticking with certified organic, certified non-GMO verified, and l ocally-grown foods that are produced naturally.”

3) Microwave Popcorn

There are chemicals in the lining of the bag which are part of a class of compounds (PFOA) that may be linked to infertility in humans, according to researchers at UCLA. In testing, the chemicals caused liver, testicular, and pancreatic cancers. Microwaving causes the chemicals to vaporize, and migrate into your popcorn. Many manufacturers have promised to phase out PFOA by 2015. Until then, it’s best to pop kernels the old fashioned way. 


4) Refined White Sugar (including High Fructose Corn Syrup)

Refined White SugarProducts made with refined white sugar not only spike insulin levels, they also feed the growth of cancer cells Numerous studies have documented that cancer cells love sugar ; cancer cells feed uncontrollably on sugar-based foods and spread rapidly to many parts of the body. These foods include cookies, cakes, pies, sodas, juices, cereals and many other mostly processed foods. Instead, preferred sweeteners, in moderation, are stevia, brown rice syrup, blackstrap molasses, organic maple syrup, organic raw local honey, and date sugar.

5) Farmed Salmon

Farmed SalmonJust when you thought it was safe to go into the water… According
to Dr. David Carpenter, Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment at the University of Albany, farmed salmon not only lacks vitamin D, it is often contaminated with carcinogenic chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics and flame retardant. Only purchase wild-caught.
