Not true at all: There are hardly any foods that can be blamed for causing cancer. Rest of it is all in your mind. So just relax and eat all healthy foods and enjoy them as they are body's nourishment.. You should not indulge in a lot of meat and animal based foods some of which have the risk of causing cancer but even that is debated. There are actually many foods like fruits and vegetables which prevent cancer.
