There are so many ways in which we can be exposed to cancer, but this time I’m going to talk about cancer linked to canned food and plastic bottles. Now before I begin, allow me to ask, who has never eaten canned food? I don’t know about you but I know I have. On an occasion I would have tuna fish put some salt and pepper, some mayo and we’re good to go. But did you know that most of these easy access, quick processed foods contain a high level of toxic chemicals that cause cancer? Food packaging that was once considered to be safe by the Food and Drug Administration is now found to be hazardous to human health.

   It’s time to take charge over cancer

The more we choose to eat fresh food such as fruits and vegetables, and cut down on processed, packaging food, the better chance we get in lowering the exposure to cancer. I know that sometimes we look at our pocket change when we make food choices, but what would it profit to go cheat and die than to spend a little bit more change and live longer?  Don’t you want to live long enough to see your kids or grand kids?

The reason why the canned food is  not good for you is that it has an industrial chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA) used in many bottles and metal-based and beverages since the 1960s. According to the Federal Officials it’s a big concern because they found that it interferes with hormones that regulate reproduction, metabolism, behavior, and especially the development of fetuses, infants, and your children.

Please be mindful of your baby’s health. Make choices that would preserve your innocent baby. Once again kill cancer save birthdays. Mothers, breast feed for at least 12 months whenever possible, as breast milk is the optimal source of nutrition for infants. BPA which stands for Bisphenol A is an estrogenic chemical that lab have linked to breast cancer. So please mothers, I urge you to take charge over cancer by changing your eating habits. A small change can significantly reduce your chances of getting breast cancer.

  1. Hi Aimee,
    your post is eye opening. As a college student, I eat a lot of canned because it just takes too much time to cook beans and what have you. However, I will be putting in more time in cooking now that I know the consequences of eating canned food.
