Summer Grilling is America’s Past time but it comes with serious consequences. Ignoring the scientific communities warnings on charred foods is a serious risk.
Sometimes we ignore the warnings and studies because we find traditions and comfort foods to be more important than health. Health requires a lifetime commitment and poor health takes a lifetime to develop. Our psychologically and traditions makes it hard for us to put value into the medical and scientific warnings based on our poor eating habits. If the foods that caused health issues created instant problems or symptoms showed up 24 hours after consumption we would avoid these foods like the plague or anyone with any common sense would. Yet when people are told about these dangers, a list of excuses start rising up on why it is still ok or how one will be fine. Some of these excuses included that health food and eating well was too expensive and hard to maintain. And medical bills are not and dealing with illness is not hard? Excuses like well my grandma lived to 100 and she ate everything and anything. Unfortunately epigenetic has disproved this theory. You’re guaranteed nothing. Then others would use well you go to live a little. Nope live a little absolutely not live a lot seem more my position. Most of the foods in the past were eaten in fewer amounts and with fewer toxins. Since WWII we have gone full throttle on toxins including things like bacon, hotdogs and burgers which have well been established to be disease promoting.
Breathing in the fumes from grilling is equally as bad as smoking. Yet people hover around the grill completely oblivious to the dangers. This summer you might warn family and friends to stay away from the grill it causes serious long term health issues. HCAs (Heterocyclic Amines are well established as highly toxic and known carcinogens. Eating these is not just a small risk but a serious risk to health. This 4rth of July stay off the grill.
