SHAFAQNA TURKEY – We use it everyday but it causes cancer! There are many factors that cause dangerous diseases such as cancer, heart disease and high blood pressure. Studies have shown that the materials and products we often use in the kitchen are associated with cancer. To reduce the risk of cancer, we need to stay away from the following foods.
Do you feel overwhelmed by all the information about the dangers of certain foods, drinks, and household items? New research is constantly published on the harmful chemicals and ingredients we often unknowingly use every day, often leaving us wondering if these things are safe to use or consume. A study conducted in 2022 identified the three most dangerous substances found in everyday life that cause cancer.
1- NON-STICK POT
The connection between non-stick cookware and our health has proven to be complex over the years. Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, are synthetic chemicals used in items such as waterproof clothing, cleaning products, and non-stick cookware. These substances are known to be among the most important catalysts for a number of health risks associated with non-stick pans. In fact, PFAS are sometimes referred to as “timeless chemicals” because they are digested very slowly and are known to stay in your body and environment forever.
INCREASES THE RISK OF LIVER CANCER
Past research has found links between PFAS and things like liver disease and cancer, but most of this research has been done in animals, limiting our overall understanding. A study published in JHEP Reports Innovation in Hepatology in 2022 confirmed the link between PFAS and liver cancer. Not only that, it used human blood and tissue samples previously collected from more than 200,000 people. Liver cancer was found in 50 of these samples. And when the researchers looked at their blood before the cancer developed, they found high levels of PFAS. According to a study report from the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, participants in the top 10% most exposed to PFAS were 4.5 times more likely to develop liver cancer than participants in the last 10%.
2- OVERPROCESSED PRODUCTS
Not surprisingly, eating highly processed foods such as fast food, sodas, and packaged baked goods is associated with various health complications. Past research has found links between ultra-processed foods and an increased risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. But in August 2022, a new study was published showing a confirmed link between these foods and colorectal cancer, especially in men.
MEN ARE CONNECTED TO CANCER
The study, published in the British Medical Journal, looked at three large cohorts of 3,216 cases of colorectal cancer. Among these cases, those who consumed the most ultra-processed foods had a 29% higher risk of developing cancer than those who consumed the least of these foods. Interestingly, a higher intake of processed meats, seafood, and poultry products, as well as carbonated drinks, appeared to be the main reason for this increased risk compared to other types of ultra-processed foods. Also, although both men and women participated in the study, there was no association between ultra-processed foods and colorectal cancer in women.
3- ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS
It has been recommended that you choose diet drinks over regular drinks to reduce your intake of added sugar. Unfortunately, a March 2022 study found a possible link between artificial sweeteners, such as those used in diet drinks, and an increased risk of cancer.
Stay away from artificial sweets
A study published in PLOS Medicine examined the potential carcinogenic effects of three popular types of artificial sweeteners: aspartame, sucralose, and acesulfame-K; diet sodas and tabletop candy alternatives were among the most common. The researchers found that among more than 100,000 French adults, those who consumed the most of these artificial sweeteners had a 13% higher risk of developing cancer, with aspartame and acesulfame-K particularly contributing to the highest risk.
