5 Ways Your Food Causes Cancer
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has an action plan to help us eliminate acrylamide from our food. Why is it important? Because for years the chemical has been linked to cancer in mice and researchers aren't certain if the chemical can cause cancer in humans who have been exposed to the carcinogen for years. Cancer rates are also increasing. Acrylamide is the by-product of cooking and food production processes. Many of our favorite foods could lead to cancer.
