We’re eating charred meat
Who doesn’t love a good barbecue or some roasted meat for lunch? This is perhaps one of the most popular meal choices in our country especially during the hot season.
Unfortunately, it’s just as harmful as it is tasty.
The National Cancer Institute points out to several studies proving that frying meat at high temperatures or flame-grilling can trigger a chemical-forming process. During this process, the DNA can literally be affected, which increases your risk for all types of cancer.
Captain’s Tip: This risk can be reduced by simply avoiding any type of blackened meat. Additionally, you can replace frying (which also gives you cancer-causing trans fats) with baking, roasting or broiling. Luckily, there are countless recipes available nowadays that prove just how delicious healthy food can get!
