Cancer Linked To Barbecue Meats

Once again the press gets it wrong saying that a compound that is formed when meats are charred at high temps is linked to cancer in rats. I believe that they are referring to grilling here but calling it BBQ.

I do believe thought that rats are the most cancer prone animals out there!

When I was a kid, my great-grandmother used to alway tell us that those charcoal briquets would cause cancer. She didn't want to eat anything cooked over charcoal, only wood. I don't put a lot of faith into any of the cancer research. My other grandmother is now 93 years old, continues to live alone, drives a car, and is in relatively good health and she has eaten charcoal-grilled, smoked bbq, fatty meats and whatever else she wanted all her life. The great grandmother I spoke of, passed away about 3 years ago at the ripe old age of 95. Basically, her body just started giving out. I guess that's why I am the way I am, I eat what I like. If it kills me well, life's too short to be spent in misery anyway!

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A compound formed when meat is charred at high temperatures -- as in barbecue -- encourages the growth of prostate cancer in rats, researchers reported on Sunday.

Quote:
It also fits in with other studies suggesting that cooking meat until it chars might cause cancer.
Thats why WE cook low and slow.
