Things That Could Give You Cancer

Yes, I know, the title is very grim. But so is the truth.
Yesterday I went to watch ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ and it really made me think about cancer. For about 5 minutes today I had a burning passion to figure out a way to end cancer and it’s prevailing effects. One way to prevent people from getting cancer is to know what could give you cancer in the first place.
Let’s get started.
1) Processed Meat. This isn’t very surprising actually. So many chemicals are used on meats which is why everyone should stick to organic, grass-fed meat or go vegetarian. Oh, and eat organic fruit and veg. Just eat organic as much as possible.
2) Popcorn Bags. Yep, I know, licking the butter off of the sides is very satisfying. It could kill you though, so don’t. The bag is lined with PFOA which is a toxin. It causes infertility too.
3) Potato Chips. This is because they are fried in high temperatures which causes acrylamide to form (Acrylamide is a carcinogen found in cigarettes)
4) Excess amounts of alcohol. I don’t think an explanation is necessary for this one.
5) Parabens which are found in cosmetics. Ladies, put that make-up down. Please.
I found out all of this information from a beautiful place called BuzzFeed.
Anyways, I must go hunt for potato chips to throw out. Who knew?
Take care of yourself. The world can be a scary place when you’re not aware.
