Barbecuing isn’t such a “hot” way to cook meat

One chemical group, called HAAs (heterocyclic aromatic amines), forms during high-temperature reactions between substances in muscle tissue.  A recent study of prostate tumor biopsies showed that these HAAs can migrate to the prostate and damage prostate cells.  See here for the study, and tips about ways to reduce the levels of carcinogens in your meat.

“I now eat far more veggies, and look at packaging, cutting processed foods, and working on cutting out sugar.”
“I don’t look at meat as the main part of my meal.  I eat less meat and more fruits and vegetables.  I seek out plant-based recipes.  Lastly, I try and will continue to try to eat foods I have not eaten before, e.g. eggplant and kale. (Still not fond of kale, but at least I tried it.)"
“Excellent session.  I continue to be amazed at what I didn’t know and how easy it will be to change to healthier eating.”
