Food Chemicals
  • About 6,000 chemicals, both synthetic and natural, are deliberately or inadvertently added to foods
  • Hundreds of thousands of chemicals – perhaps a million – are naturally present in foods
  • Coffee aroma alone consists of about 1,000 different chemicals
  • Relatively few chemicals that occur naturally in foods have been tested for their cancer-causing potential
  • Several natural carcinogens that are widely consumed in ordinary foods
  • Caffeic acid, found in coffee and in apples, lettuce, peaches, pears, potatoes, tomatoes and citrus fruits, causes cancer in laboratory animals, but its role, if any, in human cancer is unknown
