Cancer is strongly connected with what we eat.
Recently published new data of researches from Stockholm found that diet changes can prevent cancer formations. Swedish doctors are summarized statistics of research, which involved nearly 5000 people.
It was found that increasing use of processed meat products such as sausages with only 30 grams per day increases the risk of developing stomach cancer by 15-38%. Scientists say the increased risk of cancer may be associated with addition to these products of nitrates and preservatives. In large quantities these substances are carcinogenic. A second important factor is the impact of toxic substances that result from smoked meat.
Another new trend in diets connected with cancer is low fat foods. It was found that foods high in fat increase the risk of breast cancer and pancreas. Especially dangerous are the so-called hot fat – those used for cooking food warmers again.
The risk of developing colon cancer increases with excessive consumption of fried and roasted meat in the course of preparation appears carcinogens.
Foods rich in fiber can neutralize the harmful effects: fresh vegetables, fruits, bread with bran. They are associated with carcinogens. Source of carcinogens in fried potato chips and crackers are carbohydrates. When heated they emit specific substances – acrylamides. They increase the risk of developing cancer. If the potatoes are roasting in red, it means that they contain acrylamide. The most concentrated is the substance in chips and fries. Acrylamide is present in any other fried foods rich in carbohydrates, but in different quantities.
This does not mean you should completely give up French fries. Consumed in reasonable amounts is not harmful. But when in the daily diet of modern people and regularly eat chips and French fries and tasty toasted pie, the risk of excessive accumulation of carcinogens in the body increased considerably.
Is it true that all soy sauces contain carcinogens?
Indeed, in many soy sauces were found extremely high doses of some carcinogens. In Europe, was recently published official report on the survey results of more than 2000 soy sauces. Elevated levels of carcinogens were found in 35% of samples and very high – at around 14%. The most dangerous substances contained in products manufactured in Vietnam, China, Taiwan and the Philippines. Try to buy soy sauce, prepared by fermentation. This information is listed on the label.
