BEACON TRANSCRIPT- Everybody loves Nutella. Despite this, it is believed that the main ingredient in this creamy spread might actually cause us cancer. This is not the only food that can make us sick. Bacon, ham, and hot dogs can also cause cancer.
A new study showed that the ingredient that is used for Nutella, bacon, and ham can make us sick. One of the reasons for which these foods were linked to cancer is the palm oil. This is the ingredient that is carcinogenic.
Despite the fact that previous studies showed that this ingredient can cause cancer, palm oil is still used in making several delicious products that are consumed worldwide. Nutella, for instance, is one of the products that contain this edible oil.
Although it is bad for your health these products are being sold in every store that you can find. All of us are probably wondering what is safe to eat anymore. Well, anything that doesn’t contain sugar, palm oil, salt and other bad ingredients. This way we would probably have to farm our own vegetable and raise animals in order to stay healthy.
Red meat has also been linked to cancer. In 2015 WHO announced that red meat might be dangerous for us because it might lead to cancer. Another announcement was made that same year, in July. This study showed that alcohol can also lead to cancer.
Specialists mentioned that people don’t need to be worried and give up any food that is linked to cancer. They mentioned that these studies are made in order to make people understand that some types of food need to be consumed less than others.
This is why experts said that people can eat anything but they should eat more fish and vegetable in order to stay healthy. As long as they don’t abuse any of these products there is no higher risk of developing cancer.
The researchers mentioned that there are a lot of factors that influence out health, not only what we eat. Some of those factors include age, blood pressure, drinking, and smoking. All of these combined with no physical activity and bad alimentation are the ones that can cause health problems.
What is your opinion about this study? Do you think that these foods can cause cancer?
