The top five cancer-causing foods are: 

1..   Hot Dogs   

Because  they are  high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention  Coalition advises that  children eat no more than  12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live  without hot  dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.   

2.   Processed meats  and Bacon  

Also  high in the  same sodium nitrates found in hot  dogs, bacon, and other processed  meats raise the  risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon   also contributes to cancer.  

3.   Doughnuts   

Doughnuts  are  cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are  made with white  flour, sugar, and hydrogenated  oils, then fried at high  temperatures.. Doughnuts,  says Adams  , may be the worst food you can  possibly eat to raise your risk of  cancer.


4.   French fries  

Like  doughnuts,  French fries are made with hydrogenated  oils and then fried at high  temperatures. They  also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which   occur during the frying process. They should be  called cancer  fries, not French fries, said Adams   .


5.   Chips,  crackers, and  cookies  

All  are usually  made with white flour and sugar. Even  the ones whose labels claim to  be free of  trans-fats generally contain small amounts of   trans-fats.
