Causes of cancer

Smoking is very often the main cause of cancer. It kills us silently and drains money from us quietly. There're 4,000 harmful chemicals (though in diluted form) in one stick of cigarette. Taking one puff is 600 times worst than inhaling the exhaust fumes from vehicles.
Some food that cause cancer are,
1. Barbecued Food
2. Deep Fried Food
3. Overheating Meat
4. Food that is high in fat causes our bile to secrete acid that contains a chemical which is a promoter of cancer cells.
5. Food that contains preservatives, too much salt or nitrates (e.g. Canned food, Salted egg & veggies, sausages, etc.)
6. Overnight Rice (where Aflatoxin is accumulated)
7. Food that is low in fibre: Our body needs 25 gm of both soluble & insoluble fibre daily. We must drink at least 1.5 litres of plain water a day.
8. Contaminated Food.
