What’s worse is that many of us have some potentially cancer-causing foods as staples of our diet. We all know that some foods are better for us than others, but are any bad enough to avoid completely? Research and recently completed long-term studies have brought to light some alarming results. In addition to causing many problems like obesity, heart disease, and diabetes… certain foods have even been linked to cancer.
Millions of people unknowingly consume harmful foods every day.
So let’s take a look at some of the “worst offenders” and see what we really shouldn’t be putting in our bodies.
Who doesn’t love the taste of a salty, crunchy potato chip? While they may be satisfying to eat, the negative effect they have on your body may be hard to stomach. Potato chips are calorie dense and high in fat content, both of which contribute to unintended weight gain. Not to mention many popular brands are high in trans fats and sodium which can result in higher blood pressure. Don’t forget that most potato chips at the grocery store contain artificial preservatives and dyes that are fried at a high temperature. This process creates what is called acrylamide.
Acrylamide is a known carcinogen that is found in cigarettes.
Although they are delicious, potato chips can cause some very undesirable effects as a part of your daily diet.
