We all know that cancer is a great threat to our life, but did you know that certain foods you eat every day will cause cancer? Let's take a look at 16 cancer-causing foods that you probably eat every day.
1. Canned Foods
Most cans are made with a chemical called bisphenol-A (BPA) which can affect the way genes work inside the brain. And that's why canned foods are suspected of causing cancer.
2. Soda Pop
Loaded with sugar, Sodas are a leading cause of the nationwide obesity and can lead to many health issues, such as inflammation, insulin resistance, and gastro-esophageal reflux disease.
3. Farmed Salmon
Farmed salmon are fed on unnatural diets and can become contaminated with chemicals, antibiotics, pesticides, and other known carcinogens.
4. Microwave Popcorn
Microwave popcorn bags contain perfluorooctanoic acid, a toxin linked to infertility in women and increases the risk of kidney, balder, liver, pancreas and testicular cancers. Most popcorns use soybean oil which can cause stomach problems and skin rashes.
5. Processed Meats
Processed Meats such as sausages, hot dogs, and bacon contain numerous chemicals and preservatives that are harmful to your health.
6. Potato Chips
Potato chips are high in weight gaining elements, and their excessive trans-fats and sodium can cause high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

11. Refined Sugars
Back in 1931, German Otto Warburg, the Nobel laureate in medicine, first discovered that tumors and cancers both use sugars to feed themselves to proliferate.
12. Artificial Sweeteners
Mounting evidence has proven that the chemicals that make up artificial sweeteners break down in the body as a deadly toxin called DKP, which can cause cancer, particularly brain tumors.
13. Diet Anything

A moderate consumption of alcohol can be healthy, but excessive drinking is the primary cause of heart failure, stroke, sudden death, female breast cancers and more.
