List: Known Carcinogenic Foods
If you want to be one step ahead of reducing your cancer risk, consider limiting your consumption of the following foods:
We’ve already mentioned red meat earlier, so let’s talk about it first. The World Health Organization identifies red meat as “probably carcinogenic to humans” because of its strong association with colorectal cancer.
The word “probably” is inserted because the limited studies that we have haven’t yet ruled out other factors (like the ones we mentioned: family history, etc.)
Red meat refers to the mammalian muscle meat, which includes pork, lamb, beef, veal, goat, horse, and mutton.
Recommended Servings: 1 to 2 servings weekly, equivalent to 6 ounces (170 grams) per week.
