What are the causes of cancer and how to avoid it?

A study published by the World Health Organization warned of foods that increase the risk of cancer, we review together.
1- Charred meat: When roasting red meat at a high temperature, some parts are charred, so it produces harmful DNA. To avoid this, the researchers recommend cooking over a medium heat, turning the meat at intervals, and baking at a moderate temperature.
2- Microwave popcorn: GMO corn kernels and the fumes from artificial butter contain diacetyl, which is toxic to humans. Therefore, it is preferable to make popcorn in the traditional way, not using the microwave.
3- Hydrogenated fats: They change the shape of cell membranes and promote the growth of abnormal cells.
4- Soft Drinks: Soda is a killer mix of harmful colors and preservatives loaded with tons of hidden sugars.
