Dallas, TX, November 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Dr. Dennis Birenbaum, head of the Texas Hematology / Oncology Centers PA, and an MD Anderson trained cancer physician, is an outspoken advocate of the delaying and even the prevention of certain cancers through smarter lifestyle and eating choices.
Dr. Birenhaum states, “If you are like most Americans you crave your sweetened sodas, donuts, fries, hot dogs and the little crispy burned edges of your bacon or steaks. It’s tough to give up what you like. These five foods are not selected arbitrarily. Many experts like myself believe that these five foods are in the top tier of potentially cancer causing snacks and meals as well as contributing to other health related issues. The general mantra is to eat healthy, but my philosophy is to be specific and start by not eating unhealthy. Before you make the decision of what to eat, you need to make the much harder commitment of what not to eat. So, my advice is to target the five items: sodas, donuts, fries, hot dogs and burned meat and make sure you avoid them all at least one day each week.”
Many people dedicated to improved nutrition are in sync with Dr. Birenbaum’s position. A healthy diet that can potentially lower a person’s risk for certain cancers can actually start with what you choose not to eat and many people just don’t know where to start. The idea is to keep the first step simple and commit to limit the five common foods listed. Mentioned in internet commentaries, these and other similar foods have published ingredients or cooking processes that involve chemicals proven to contribute to a higher risk of cancer.
Dr. Dennis Birenbaum concluded, “Although cancer is caused by many factors, including heredity and the environment, I encourage my patients to take advantage of the things they can control. So set a realistic eating goal as you move toward a much healthier lifestyle diet. By slowing down the cumulative effects of eating certain foods patients can see that the health benefits are real.”
