Grilling and Cancer

Here is some information that I wanted to share with you. This information may very well be known to many or most of you, but it was new to me. Grilling causes cancer!

I have cooked on a grill all my life. I try to eat healthy and recently discovered that of all things that chicken, when cooked fairly well done on a grill, is highly cancerous. The carcinogens are called heterocyclic amines (HCAs), and Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs).

Trying to stay within the posting guidelines I don’t know how to discuss any other information about these carcinogens. If you want to research what I have posted above you will find that the “five worst foods to grill”, in this order, are chicken, steak, pork, salmon, and hamburger. Can you believe that hamburger is the least cancerous of all these listed? Grilled chicken is actually 110 times more cancerous than hamburger.

I will never cook chicken directly over a fired grill again.

Re: Grilling and Cancer

DannyTX,

That's great information and good for this board. Grilling is very popular and many people are unaware of the danger.

To add more: Don't overeat animal protein. Animal protein itself, whether grilled or not, is a promoter of cancer. There's a good book that will tell you all about this: "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell.

Be informed and be healthy:
