Going to the supermarket has become a difficult thing to do; as you always need to be informed which new chemicals may be a hazard to your health. However, some people still choose to buy whatever package they like the most. This is the main reason why we have decided to educate you on cancer causing foods today.
#1 – Microwave Popcorn
Of course, it’s really easy to put a bag of popcorn in the microwave, wait a few minutes – and your snack is prepared. However, the next time you are about to even buy a bag of microwave popcorn, you should think twice about it. First thing you should know is that the bag itself contains a chemical known as perfluorooctanoic acid, which is listed as a popular carcinogen chemical (it is also found in Teflon). The contents of the bag are no better, as they contain a preservative called propyl gallate, which is a chemical known to cause skin rashes and stomach problems.
