It’s a bit of a mood killer, but the truth is that a lot of the food we eat today are pretty bad for us – so bad, in fact, that they could cause cancers. Most of them have been artificially engineered to increase their numbers and the flavors that we love.
So, instead of eating on and being vulnerable because some company wants to make more money, it’s time to check out what could be killing you with every bite – or gulp.
1. Microwave popcorn
In general, the science supports that popcorn is pretty healthy. However, what makes it especially unhealthy is the way that most manufacturers choose to make it. There are several means of doing this, of course, but the most convenient way is exactly what can make popcorn to be dangerous.
Most microwave bags are lined with perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) – a dangerous chemical that can cause kidney cancer, bladder cancer, and complications with the testicles and pancreas too.
