When we hear about lung cancer, cigarette smoking is a common cause, but scientists have also found that some foods can lead to this serious illness.
Recent scientific studies have shown that individual eating habits can also contribute to the risk of lung cancer.
Unlike smoking, you may not need to completely abstain from these foods, but you should raise them as much as possible to avoid an increased risk of illness.
These foods include:
1. Saturated fat
These saturated fats are found in processed meats, dark chocolate and cream.
One study found that people who ate large amounts of saturated fats inside their diet were more likely to develop lung cancer than those who ate less than a day.
2. Beta-carotene supplements manufactured
Beta carotene is found naturally in orange or yellow foods such as carrots, peppers, pumpkins and mango and has health benefits.
But the problem, according to the researchers, lies in the use of processed beta-carotene supplements, which can have a negative impact on people who smoke, especially if taken too much, increasing the possibility of contracting cancer.
The study examined the determination of manufactured beta-carotene supplements, not their natural body.
The authors issued recommendations to stimulate beta-carotenoids from their natural sources and avoid any plant sources.
3. Carbohydrates treated
The researchers found that people who ate more sugars had a higher risk of developing lung cancer than those who consumed less sugar.
4. Grilled meat
Studies have shown that roast meat can contribute to the growth of many cancers such as pancreatic cancer and breast cancer.
Smoke and smoke from grilled or burned meat during the barbeque contain carcinogens that can penetrate into the flesh to enter your body with what you eat after you have finished the barbecue.
5. Foods and drinks contain arsenic
Arsenic may be present in varying degrees in drinking water if contaminated, and some processed juices such as apple juice, rice, seafood and poultry.
A health study concluded that contamination of drinking water in Bangladesh had a serious negative effect on lung function, after researchers found arsenic.
