Here are some things that can cause cancer which you might not have noticed before. Those habits are listed below for you.
4 Things you should avoid in daily life
- Nowadays everyone knows that consuming tobacco is the major reason for getting lung cancer. The chemicals present in tobacco smoke damage the cells and change the DNA. They block the process of cell growth. And it is also not good for your oral hygiene.
- People who are having obesity, have so many health problems, like Diabetes, heart related problems, and high blood pressure. Cut out some unhealthy foods that you take on a regular basis to avoid these health issues. Just like packaged foods, sugary meals, red or processed meats.
