Foods to Avoid With Cancer


There are many foods that fight cancerous cells within the body, such as vegetables and fruits. On the flip side, there are also foods that encourage the spread of cancer and should be avoided.

Charred Foods

Blackened or charred foods and pan-fried meats contain heterocyclic amines that cause cancerous mutations in studies. Flip your burgers every 60 seconds to avoid charring.


Alcohol has been shown to do all kinds of evils to your body. It can speed up the delivery of cancer-causing agents into the cells, weaken the immune system, overstimulate the release of certain hormones associated with cancer and reduce the availability of a B-vitamin required for normal DNA synthesis, thus speeding up rates of cell division.

Red Meat

Consumption of high-fat animal foods is linked to an increased risk of cancer progression. If you are trying to avoid the spread of cancer, eat a diet low in animal fats.

Processed Foods

New research suggests that a diet high in inorganic phosphates, found in a variety of processed foods--including meats, cheeses, beverages, and bakery products--might speed growth of cancer tumors.

Saturated Fats

Saturated fats come from animal products, such as meat and dairy, and are linked with greater spread of cancer. Fish oils and vegetable fats, on the other hand, are not.
