5 Foods and Drinks That Are Debated That Can Trigger Cancer

From genetics to lifestyle influences, researchers are constantly trying to identify what can drive a person to cancer. Some foods for example have been proven can be a trigger cancer or carcinogen while others are still unclear.

Now related to it currently there are at least five ingredients of food and beverages that are debated whether researchers include carcinogens or not.

Although it does not mean we must immediately away from it, it never hurts to know:

1. Coffee

In the United States coffee became the subject of conversation because the content of acrylamide compounds that are formed when the seeds are roasted. The nonprofit organization is trying to make store owners warn consumers that coffee is dangerous.

In 2002, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified acrylamide into the 2A carcinogen group for humans, but based on studies conducted on animals. Meanwhile, according to studies conducted on humans in 2014 found 'no significant association between intake of acrylamide from food and various types of cancer'.

2. Hot Tea

A study by researchers from the Peking University Health Science Center found that consumption of hot tea may increase the risk of esophageal cancer. But with the note that this seems to only happen to smokers and people who like to consume liquor.

This happens probably not because of the content present in tea but the influence of the drink temperature. Consumption of tea with high temperatures can further damage the cells of the esophageal wall of smokers or drinkers of alcohol thus increasing the incidence of tumors

3. Asparagine

The so-called asparagine compound commonly found in asparagus vegetables in a recent study in the journal Nature is said to be linked to breast cancer. Tests in mice see that when aspagarine consumption is limited then breast cancer cells become more difficult to develop.

According to researchers this is likely because cancer cells need asparagine as their favorite food ingredient. But once again the test is still done on animals so it is not necessarily the same thing happens in humans.

4. Soy

Soy contains phytoestrogens (isoflavones) called genestein and daidzein in large quantities. These vegetable chemicals mimic the hormone estrogen seen by several studies in the journal National Cancer Institute can encourage the growth of breast cancer cells.

However, other studies see different results where when children eat a diet high in soy are protected from cancer risk. For now, various studies still provide mixed results.

5. Dairy products

In a study conducted by the Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health, found an association between high consumption of dairy products and calcium with prostate cancer development.

However, other studies by European researchers to see low-fat dairy diet can actually reduce risk of colon cancer by 25 percent. This possibility is related to how high the content of fat present in milk.

Those food is still in debate by Scientist and Researcher that can trigger Cancer, but do not worry to much, as long as you dont eat to much you will be ok, stay healty :)
