Microwave Popcorn is something everyone has practically grown up eating, yet what most people don’t know is that microwave popcorn is highly carcinogenic in nature. Even worse than the popcorn is the flavoring which is used on the kernels which is completely artificial and unfit for human consumption. Rather than consuming popcorn bought in boxes, it is a much better idea to purchase the kernels, pop it on the stove and add your own melted butter.
Many people have the misconception that charred meat, that has been prepared on the grill or ‘tandoor’ is incredibly healthy, but in actual fact, this is not the case. The entire process is notorious for producing heterocyclic aromatic amines and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which is terribly bad for health.
Artificial sweeteners are heavily advertised as being great substitutes for sugar, yet in reality, artificial sweeteners are carcinogenic in nature and should not be consumed, in even the smallest amounts. If you are someone who loves sugar and has been advised against having any kinds of sugar, then what you can do is add small amounts of honey to your dessert, instead of resorting to artificial sweeteners which are nothing better than poison.
Excessive intake of Alcohol
Tran’s fats are incredibly harmful to the body and they should not be consumed at any rate. Tran’s fats are usually found in food items like crackers, biscuits, chips or even cookies. However, apart from Tran’s fats, even the consumption of alcohol in excessive amounts is something which is sure to give you cancer. If you are someone who has a drinking problem, rather than dismissing it as nothing, you should make it a point to seek help at the earliest, because if you don’t do this, you are bound to be in for a number of health-related issues.
Many of these food items might seem rather harmless in nature, especially the popcorn; however, these items have been scientifically proven to be carcinogenic in nature. People who have heeded the warnings have managed to steer clear of cancer, whereas those who refused to change their lifestyle for the better have sadly been forced to deal with the disastrous consequences of cancer.
