What is really in our food? In 2005, a study found that an average of 200 industrial chemicals were found in babies at the moment of birth. Pediatrician Dr. James Sears says 15 million pounds of food dyes are put in our foods every year, and that these chemicals are linked to allergies, inflammatory diseases, and behavioral problems such as ADHD and autism. And that’s only the beginning.

GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) have long been thought to cause cancer. In 2012, a French team claimed a bestselling brand of genetically modified corn caused tumors and organ damage in rats. The rats showed pre-cancerous cell growths and damaged immune systems in just 10 days. Other scientists disputed the claim. Still, why take any chances, especially when 41 percent of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. Any food modified by chemicals and grown with chemicals might have a dangerous and life-threatening chemical reaction in the human body. Here are 10 foods you never knew caused cancer.

7 Canned Tomatoes

6 Processed Meat

5 Microwave Popcorn

Americans eat nearly 54 quarts of popcorn a year. Although typically believed to be a "healthy" snack, or at least relatively healthy, once it is showered in salt and drenched in butter all nutritional value is out the window. But does eating popcorn expose us to cancer-causing chemicals?

The dangers of genetically modified organisms have been well documented. GMOs were first introduced in 1996. Since then, studies suggest that Americans with three or more chronic illnesses jumped from 9 percent to 13 percent. Autism has skyrocketed, and so has food allergies. There has been a sharp rise in autoimmune diseases, infertility, and gastrointestinal problems. Coincidence? Probably not. As of 2010, 80 percent of corn and 90 percent of soybeans grown in the U.S. were grown from modified seeds. Moreover, the bovine growth hormone in milk has been linked to cancer. In other words, food isn’t meant to be mass-produced with biotechnology. When you eat GMOs, you eat at your own risk.
