The Worst Foods That Have Been Linked to Cancer

Shelf-Stable Meals

Shelf-stable meals contain pretty much all of the ingredients that define the "ultra-processed" category. 

Boxed Meals

Boxed meals like macaroni and cheese and taco kits contain many of the same problem ingredients.

Instant Noodles

The same problem that plagues your shelf-stable meal can be found with your instant noodles. 

Instant Soup

The same is true for instant soup packets. Simmering pasta and frozen veggies in chicken broth is nearly as quick and far better for you!

Instant Mashed Potatoes

Instant mashed potatoes have been heavily processed for ease, but making your own mashed potatoes takes less than half an hour.

Store-Bought Bread

Grocery store bread is a part of the ultra-processed category not only due to the presence of hydrogenated oils

Store-Bought Burger Buns

Like sliced supermarket bread, store-bought burger buns often contain bromated flour. Many of them also contain sugar, which isn't ideal either.
