Cooking meat at high temperatures generates cancer-causing chemicals called heterocyclic amines. Research from the University of Texas cautions that people who eat meat frequently, especially red meat that is cooked medium or well-done, may run a high risk of developing bladder cancer.
Call to Action:
You can reduce your risk by:
- Cooking at lower temperatures for a longer period of time
- Keep flames from touching food when barbecuing or grilling
- Eating more meatless meals
