(NaturalNews) In a somewhat surprising move, presidential advisers recently warned President Obama that there are threats in our environment which increase our risk of cancer. These threats include chemicals, radiation, and even radio frequencies. These threats, they surmise, add to the risk of DNA and cell damage, and increase the risk of different types of cancer in the US population.

The panel further expressed their belief that the federal government must step in to help protect its citizens from being exposed to these elements on a frequent basis. The unfortunate truth is that technology`s greatest advances have also become one of the biggest health threats we face today.

Technological advances have given us access to things like cellular phones, advanced health scanning and detection equipment, readily available and reliable electricity, and more. So essentially, the same thing that has propelled us forward into new frontiers has also essentially poisoned our bodies.

Even the factories that produce these modern day conveniences are responsible for the majority of our air pollution. Our air quality, water purity, and even the ground in which we grow our produce is affected by poisonous emissions from factories and vehicles.

In a nutshell, every day we are inundated with chemical and environmental toxins. Until now, it really has not been acknowledged by the medical or scientific community as a true contributing factor to cancer and other diseases.

Almost everything the average citizen touches, uses on their body, inhales into their lungs, and consumes is tinged with some sort of pollutant or hazardous material. Of course, using only natural and chemical free products minimizes this exposure, but not everyone is able to do this.

Even our water is often touched by contaminants. Chlorine, various heavy metals, pesticides, solvents and other toxic chemicals are often found in tap water, which is why many people choose to filter their water.

Even drinking water from a plastic bottle has hazards you must be aware of. BPAs, or Bisphenol A, which is a chemical found in plastic bottles, has been linked to causing various types of cancers.

If you cook with plastic in the microwave, harmful BPAs may be leaching into your food as well, since they are more easily leached when heated. For this reason, it is recommended that you heat your food in the microwave only in glass. In fact, you may be better off to eliminate microwave cooking all together.

Why use a microwave at all? There is evidence that microwave cooking not only destroys healthful enzymes and nutrients in food, but also chemically alters your food`s composition. These alterations in composition can cause mutations into cancer causing agents, especially with certain foods like meats.

Even your cookware can infuse your foods with hazardous chemicals. Popular nonstick coatings that are often used in frying pans and other cookware have been suspected in causing foods to leach harmful contaminants from their surface when heated. Linked to bird deaths, these coatings cause activists to worry about what it could do to the human body in terms of physiological damage.
