This type of food has the largest quantity of carcinogenic substances and it mainly cause damages to our liver and we may suffer from cancer because of it.

As alcohol can hinder the normal functioning of the immune system so as to lower the ability of the liver so the carcinogenic substances that absorbed by stomach are increased. If we have drunk more than 200ml of alcohol, the chances of having cancers will be greatly increased. If we smoke together with drinking, the chance of having cancers will be greatly increased.
10.Avoid eating carcinogenic food such as steroids and the food that contains lots of Vitamin E. As they can increase the chance of suffering from breast Cancer.
