20 ‘Innocent’ Habits That Might Give You Cancer (Expert-Verified)
We’re eating deli meats
For many people, it’s impossible to imagine a complete breakfast without some crispy bacon or sausages. However, these delicious treats may do more harm than good in the long run.
In 2015, the International Agency for Research on Cancer official listed processed meat as a human carcinogen. Why?
Firstly, these foods are manufactured using chemicals known for damaging colon and rectum cells. In fact, if you eat just 1.8 ounces of processed meat per day, you can increase your risk of colorectal cancer by almost 20%!
The most popular processed meats are hot dogs, sausage, ham, pepperoni, beef jerky, roast beef and any other deli meats.
Captain’s Tip: No matter how convenient and tasty these types of meat may seem, they’re just not worth the risk. Skip them by cooking fresh meat at home or just opting for whole meats instead.
