In this modern age, we are constantly being exposed to varioustypes of chemicals and toxins.
For example, we are eating foods that are full of dangerous chemicals, GMO foods and in some caseseven the food packaging is toxic.
Even the air itself which we have to keep on living,now is overly-polluted.
Needless to mention the countless harmful substances with which we come in contact with on every day.
However, the worst part is that many people are not even aware of all these dangers.
They think that only because their food is labeled, it is some kind of assurance that everything is as it has to be.
That’s the reason why we made a list of the 12 most harmful foods, which could even lead to cancer formation.
The scariest part is that they could be found in most households.
- Whole Milk
The whole milk hides certain toxins thatcannot be found on the label (which is very convenient for the manufacturers).
Some of these toxins, most of them carcinogenic, arecertain antibiotics, heptachlor, hexachlorobenzene, ddt, dieldrin, and a specific bovine growth hormone thatmight result in breast prostate, andcolon cancer.
- Ajax Cleanser and Similar Household Products
This is a cleaning product whichone of the most popular and most commonly used.
However, it hides a toxic ingredient which is called crystalline silica, and it has already been connected to lung, eyeand skin irritation and also cancer.
Luckily, the amount of products that are sold out there which are using this dangerous ingredient is decreasing more and more.

And those are: POLYSORBATE 80 ,FORMALDEHYDE,FDC RED #4 , and ‘fragnance’ – a term which is used for covering plenty different ingredients which could lead to contact dermatitis.

- Clairol Nice and Easy

The best way to increase a person’s awareness of the hidden dangers lurking around each corner in our everyday lives (however, no need to become paranoid), is by informing ourselves aboutall the harmful ingredient in our household products that we seem to ignore because most of us simply cannot find the time to read the labels.
You have to create such a helpful habit and try to avoid such dangerous ingredients whenever it’s possible.
If you cannot avoid them altogether, then try to limit their regular usage as much as you possibly can.
