You do your best to stay healthy.
You go on a walk daily. You eat your fruits and veggies and drink plenty of water.
But what you don’t know is you could be sabotaging yourself by eating one poisonous combo.
A brand-new study REVEALS eating two foods together, which are otherwise considered very healthy, can actually send your cancer risk soaring!
You don’t want to miss this info…
The iron “shield”
We all know how important it is to eat enough veggies.
But eating certain types at the same time can up your chance of getting cancer by 50%?
Here’s how it works…
When you combine iron-rich foods with lycopene, you’re putting yourself directly in the firing line of lung, prostate, and colon cancer!
So when you make a delicious meat and cheese lasagna, you could be canceling out nearly all of the tomato sauce’s cancer-fighting lycopene.
And it was a group of researchers that found this startling information out.
They designed a study to figure out exactly why certain nutrients weren’t being absorbed. They recruited seven men and gave them meals both with and without iron; each meal contained tomato ingredients.
And after the researchers took a look at the participants’ blood levels, they found that lycopene absorption was cut by HALF!
It’s downright shocking. After all, aren’t all veggies created equal?
It just goes to show the importance of getting a wide variety of nutrients… and even better, a good multi-vitamin.
You can pick up a good multi-vitamin that contains iron. Just make sure you don’t take it after a tomato-heavy meal.
As a secondary measure, be aware when you’re eating your tomatoes alongside iron-rich foods. You could leave the tomato off your hamburger at dinner, but eat it with your eggs at breakfast.
And of course, just make sure you don’t forgo iron-rich foods OR tomatoes. It’s better to get SOME nutrients than none.
