Although not always cancer causing, foods can influence the risk for a variety of cancers. Carcinogenic foods is a growing field of exploration, and in recent years, there has been a growing list of potentially cancer-causing foods. You should avoid eating them when you can, in order to give yourself the best defense against a variety of cancers.

The food you eat plays a major role in your overall health. It can help prevent illness and disease. At the same time, it can play a role in your risk for a number of conditions.

Food, of course, is not the only factor in cancer risk, and people will not always develop cancer if they eat cancer-causing foods—nor will they necessarily avoid it by filling their diet with foods that (may) prevent cancer. At the end of the day, dietary decisions are all about reducing the threat of illness and encouraging good health.
