RadiationCellCancer remains to be at the top of the list of the most common causes of fatalities. This fatal disease can affect anyone. And there are everyday items that increase the risk of cancer. These items include the following:

  • Cellular phones. There is still an ongoing debate over this matter. But the World Health Organization has already concluded that the radio frequency electromagnetic fields emitted by cellphones can possibly cause cancer in the brain. As of this moment, there is still limited evidence to prove the relation between cell phone and cancer. But it would not hurt to do take precautions. Something as simple as using headsets instead putting the phone directly to your ears can help.
  • Antiperspirant products. Aluminum in particular has been found to be a main contributor to breast cancer. What the antiperspirant does is it stops perspiration. By doing so, it encourages toxin deposits in the lymph nodes which may lead to breast cancer.
  • Talc powder. Talc has been under close scrutiny for years. This is because it has been found to have some similarities with asbestos. Talc can cause lung cancer and promote the growth of tumors in the ovaries.
  • Bubble bath for children. Products that contain sodium lauryl sulfate are known to affect the skin's mucous lining. Prolonged usage increases the risk of cancer.
  • Fried treats. Fried food should be avoided not only because they increase the body's cholesterol levels. It is also because foods that have been fried using extremely high temperatures contain acrylamide which is a type of carcinogen.
  • Alcohol. Excessively indulging in alcoholic drinks can make you become more prone not only to one but different kinds of cancer which can affect the liver, esophagus, mouth, colon, and breasts. As a matter of fact, it can increase the chances of getting breast cancer among women by as much as 30 percent.
  • Burned meat. When meat is cooked until it becomes burned, it releases toxins. It particularly creates a carcinogen known as heterocyclic aromatic amines. Despite this fact being common knowledge though, some people still can't kick off the habit of eating charred meat.
  • Cured meat. These meats contain nitrates. It is common among hotdogs, bacon, sausages and lunch meat among others.
  • Soft drinks and juices. Sweetened beverages in general are filled with refined sugar. It is also a fact that carcinogens feed on sugar. In which case, these beverages can help promote the growth and formation of tumors. Aside from the high sugar content, these drinks are also filled with certain additives that are not good for the health. As such, sweetened beverages should never take the place of vitamins and minerals, as well as other nutrients.
  • Doughnuts. Because of their high sugar content and the deep fat frying process they go through, doughnuts are a carcinogenic filled treat.

There are a number of other factors that may bring about cancer. What is more alarming is that these things have become part of people's lives and it will take a conscious effort to avoid them. But with proper information, we can all make a change and hopefully avoid cancer.
