Everyday food could be causing 90 per cent of cancers, according to study

The study – part-funded by the UK charity Worldwide Cancer Research – found palmitic acid significantly increases the likelihood that cancer will spread.

The discovery has left researchers scrambling for a new therapy to help interrupt this process in the hopes it could stop the spread of cancer in a time where diagnoses have increased at alarming rates.

Metastasis – or the spread – of cancer remains the main cause of death in cancer patients and the vast majority of people with metastatic cancer can only be treated, but not cured.

As most are aware, food can have a major impact on cancer with fatty acids being the building blocks of fat in the body.

  • Well this is another reason to avoid Palm Oil

Something is going to eventually do me in. In the mean time Leave My Food Alone. Let me enjoy my cancer causing diet.
How to be Perfectly Healthy

  1. Don’t breathe airs no good
  2. Don’t eat might die
  3. Don’t drink might die

Are you now perfectly healthy? Yes, but you’re also dead. :grinning: :grinning:


Awww, don’t shoot the messenger :018: I’m just passing on the news.

…bored out of your mind! :joy:



Ahh…thinking outside the box…I like it! :+1:

wait…wait…nope, donuts are made of palm oil


Look let’s be honest at my age if I was to introduce my body to a healthy diet it might shut down. Also

Donuts are made of cloudy fluffy dreams. Palm oil sheesh! :broken_heart: :broken_heart:

No she wasn’t! Didn’t you know? It takes 70,000 cochineal insects to produce 1 kg of red food colouring.
