So, food that increase the risk of cancer of the intestine and stomach is red processed meat. Manufacturers are trying to extend the shelf life and to change his taste with the help of nitrates and nitrites, which are carcinogens. Who recalls that even 50 grams of processed meat a day (about two slices of bacon) increases the risk of developing bowel cancer by 18 percent.

Another factor affecting the occurrence of malignant tumors, is the consumption of sugar. Despite the fact that scientists have not established a direct connection between sweets and cancer, frequent eating of foods high in sugar leads to excess weight which, in turn, increases the risk of cancer.
