Once you choose hope, anything's possible.
The link between diet and cancer is complex This is because our diet is made up of lots of different foods and nutrients. Most of these affect our risk of cancer, often in combination with one another. The genes you inherit also affect the way diet influences your cancer risk.
your diet. If it contains mostly acidic foods, your digestive system will most likely be the first to suffer.
list of unhealthy foods
1. Potato chips and french fries
Acrylamide is one of the many cancer causing agents.Potatoes are found to produce higher levels of acrylamide when fried or baked potato chips and french fries are unhealthy foods that cause cancer
2. Pickled vegetables
If you eat a lot of pickled vegetables, you are more prone to tumors in your esophagus, which is one of the rare types of cancer. Cases of esophageal adenocarcinoma are unusually common in Japan and China where pickled vegetables are a major part of their diet.
3.White bread, pasta white sugar and rice
Anything that is white is unhealthy because white is equal to processed. White bread and pasta come from bleached flour
White rice is also on the list of acidic foods because it has a very high sugar content compared to brown rice.
4.Cured or dried meat
Cured meat is acidic food.During the curing process, a potent carcinogenic substance called nitrosamine is released. Nitrosamine is carcinogenic. Bacon, sausages cured pork and dried beef are foods that cause cancer because they contain high amount of nitrosamines.
5. Grilled or charcoaled meat
grilled meat is found to be one of the unhealthy foods because they produce chemicals called heterocyclic amines or HCAs.
These chemicals are formed when the fats and protein in the meat come into contact with high heat.
Smoked foods may cause tumors in the stomach because of the carcinogenic substances called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) that form on the surface of food during the smoking process.
7.Fried sweets (doughnuts, elephant ears).
The combination of hydrogenated oils, refined flour and sugar, and the frying process which produces acrylamides causes fried, sweet food to be potential cancer causing disasters
8.Soda.(cola and other)
sugar and chemical also cause cancer
Some foods actually contribute to the development of cancer; other foods lessen the risk.
The following anti-cancer diet greatly lowers your risk of colorectal cancer and nearly all other types of cancers
1.Fats and saturated fats
Keep your diet low in total fat and very low in saturated fats /LDL)
2.Eat less total fat
Limit your daily fat intake to no more than 20 percent of your total food calories you average 2,500 calories a day, fat should provide no more than 500 of these calories you should eat around 55 grams of fat per day,
3.Eat the right fat
Unsaturated fats, found in plant foods, such as legumes
egetable oils that are high in monounsaturated fats, such as olive oil
Seafood, such as salmon and tuna, that is high in omega 3 fatty acids
Oils that contain more omega 3 flaxseed, pumpkin seed, canola, soybean (not hydrogenated), walnut, safflower, sunflower, sesame, and virgin olive oils
4.Increase Your Fiber Intake
Use whole grain ,beans ,broccoli, carrots,pumkins,carrot and raw vegetables
An Apple a Day May Keep the Cancer Doctor Away Eat lots of raw fruits and vegetables
5.Eat lots of raw fruits and vegetables
Plants also contain phytochemicals . Substances that may help your body fight cancer The five major classes of compounds that occur in fruits and vegetables as natural blocking agents against carcinogens are: phenols, indols, flavones, cumines, and isothiocyanates
The vegetables most important to reducing the risk of cancer are the cruciferous vegetables : broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts, mustard greens, kale, and cauliflower.
6.Red meat to seafood
7.Animal-based diet to a plant-based diet.
8.Eat more soy products
Soy is a more healthful source of protein than mea women who eat more soy foods have less risk of breast cancer
One serving of soy (equal to a 1/2 cup of cooked soybeans, tofu, tempeh, or one cup of soy milk) a day can lessen the risk of cancer.
9.Eat foods containing calcium.
Best sources of calcium are dairy products, such as yogurt, and bony fish.
10.Drink less alcohol.
Alcohol consumption slightly increases the risk of colorectal cancer, and the alcoholic beverage with the strongest link to colon cancer is beer.
it's possible that garlic may have some anticancer benefits.
12. Green tea.
Green tea has been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer cells, possibly because of a phytochemical it contains called "catechins."
A balanced diet will help to maintain a healthy body weight, which can itself reduce the risk of many cancers.
