4. Prepared Meats

Item

Reason to Avoid

.
Alternative

Bacon

Contains sodium nitrite

Eat fresh meat only, or
no meat at all.

Bologna

ALL of these are laced with sodium nitrate, sodium nitrite, OR BOTH. KNOWN carcinogens. Of course, all of the "corporate meat websites" insist that you simply cannot get enough sodium nitrate - pure BULL.

nitrite --> nitrate --> nitrosamines
Nitrosamines cause cancer.

Capicolla

Hot Dogs

Mortadella

Pepperoni

Pork Sausage

Prosciutto

Salami

5. Charred Meat

Item

Reason to Avoid

.
Alternative

Any burned meats

Those beautiful grill marks from barbecuing? Carcinogenic. When food turns black, you have created NEW COMPOUNDS, which were previously absent. They are called HeteroCyclic Amines, a.k.a. HCAs. They have been linked to prostate cancer and pancreatic cancer.

Cook at lower temps.

Orange Crush

It is banned throughout Europe and Japan. The FDA doesn't care about Americans. Corporate power is paramount.

ANYTHING else!

Pepsi

Contains a nasty carcinogen
4-methylimidazole in the caramel coloring. In California, Pepsi is reducing the amount just enough, so that they aren't required to have a "Causes Cancer" warning on the container.

Reason to Avoid

.
Alternative

White bread

Empty calories
You may prefer gluten-free

Whole Grain

White rice

Empty calories

Brown Rice

White sugar

Molasses

Notes:
1. With bread, they start with whole grain, they remove 95% of the nutrients, then put back 20%, and then have the gall to call it "enriched bread". BULL!. "Depleted bread" is much closer to the truth. Severely depleted.
