There are certain cancer causing foods which have invisible agents in them causing you harm.  We love eating these foo and include them in our daily diet without even knowing how much damage they are causing to our bodies. Below is a list of foods that you should try to avoid as much as possible because they are found to cause cancer.

1. Soft Drinks and Sodas

They have zero nutritional benefit and negatively work for your body. This is shown by a recent study which suggests that having a minimum  of two soda cans per week can increase the risk of pancreatic cancer.

2. Alcohol

Alcohol is No. 2 on the list of cancer-causing substances. So before you go for another glass of wine or that meat cooked in beer, think again.

3. Artificially-Sweetened Foods


Though this may be highly preferred by diet-conscious people, sweet foods labelled sugar-free are hidden enemies. This is because they have aspartame instead of sugar, and it is a big criminal, we warn you.

4. Microwaved Foods

Microwaved foods are found to produce cancerous tumors in the human stomach and intestines. Also the minerals found in vegetables when cooked in microwave change to cancerous radicals.

5. Canned tomatoes



Choose fresh tomatoes instead of canned ones as the resin that lines the cans has bisphenol-A, which leaches out due to the acidity of tomatoes. It can cause cancer by damaging chromosomes.
