The Top Five Cancer-Causing Foods are:

1. Hot dogs
Because they are high in nitrates, the Cancer Prevention Coalition advises that children eat no more than 12 hot dogs a month. If you can't live without hot dogs, buy those made without sodium nitrate.

2. Processed meats and bacon
Also high in the same sodium nitrates found in hot dogs, bacon, and other processed meats raise the risk of heart disease. The saturated fat in bacon also contributes to cancer.

3. Doughnuts
Doughnuts are cancer-causing double trouble. First, they are made with white flour, sugar, and hydrogenated oils, then fried at high temperatures. Doughnuts, says Adams , may be the worst food you can possibly eat to raise your risk of cancer.

4. French fries
Like doughnuts, French fries are made with hydrogenated oils and then fried at high temperatures. They also contain cancer- causing acryl amides which occur during the frying process. They should be called cancer fries, not French fries, said Adams .

5. Chips, crackers, and cookies
All are usually made with white flour and sugar. Even the ones whose labels claim to be free of trans-fats generally contain small amounts of trans-fats.

So, what are you waiting for? Live Life without limits!

The Story behind the Forepaugh's Restaurant

House Built in 1870 owned by Joseph Forepaugh for himself, his wife and two daughters.
His life in the house was never such a memorable one. But his business life was always successful as he was the senior partner in the largest wholesale dry goods company in the Midwest but for some reason, at the age of 58, he committed suicide. His body was found in a nearby park with a bullet in his head and the gun still clenched in his hand.

Some claimed that Forepaugh worried needlessly about his financial affairs, leading to his suicide, but there wer some feedbacks that his death had more to do with an affair of the heart than money. And they may have been right.... upon learning of his death, one of the household maids, a young girl named Molly, also killed herself. She was found hanged from an overhead light in an upstairs room. The other servants in the house believed that Molly and Forepaugh had an affair and thats why he killed himself realizing that the two of them could never be together.

Many believe that it may be Molly's ghost who has come back to haunt the place. Restaurant owner James Crnkovich recalled a special event at the place where the servers wore l9th century period clothing as costumes. As a waitress was setting up for dinner, an unknown woman in the same type of clothing (although not a dress supplied by the costume company) walked down a nearby hallway and disappeared. Staff members also talk of unusual events that happen with the customers and other employees like lights turning on and off in the basement, cold chills, strange noises and of course, the ghost of Molly.
