According Adityawati Ganggaiswari, biomedical experts from Indonesia Cancer Foundation (ICF), the seminar "Improving the Quality of Life Ostomate" on Saturday (31/3), in Jakarta, the use of inorganic substances in foods as preservatives, colorings, flavorings and ingredients known to trigger cancer cell .
How to cook the wrong way can cause carcinogenic compounds in food. "For example, red meat that is burned too mature will lead to carcinogenic substances, heterocyclic amine compounds," said Adityawati. Fried potatoes with a high temperature will contain acrylamide can cause cancer.
