When it comes to the food we eat, we need to be fully aware of everything – not just make a surface-level effort. This means being vigilant about where it comes from, what goes into the making of it, what the pros and cons are of eating it, etc.
This is important because sometimes, certain products that are marketed to us as “healthy” or we’ve somehow come to perceive as being good for us can turn to be exactly the opposite. In fact, some of them might even be carcinogens!
That’s why we need all the information we can possibly get. We’ll start you off with this list of 17 commonly consumed foods that cause cancer and what you should be eating instead.
Soda is basically just flavored sugar water, and the amount of the sweet “drug” that goes into a single can of carbonated drink will shock you! Sugar opens the gateway to a whole host of diseases, including cancer.
But that’s not all; there’s even worse news for you if you are a fan of any caramel-colored sodas. Laboratory tests have found that the carcinogenic chemical 4-MEI shows up in such drinks as a by-product of the color.
Alternatives – Water is your best choice of beverage! You can also opt for sugar-free fresh fruit/vegetable juices, or if you’re really wanting for a gassy fix, pick a soda that isn’t caramel in color.
