Sounds like propaganda cooked up by Hank Hill, and the propane companies. Actually, it is probably true, but what good is living, if you have to eat off a gas grill for the rest of your life?

Bang!!!, oops.

Eggs are bad for you. Wait now they're good for you. Butter's bad for you. Wait now butter is good for you. Alcohol is bad for you but a glass of wine is good for you and the 104 YO lady in eastern Europe credits whiskey for her longevity. Tobacco is bad for you, period! I'll take my chances with all the above plus lump charcoal minus tobacco.

Didn't read don't care going to die from something, I'll bet processed food will kill you before cooking on a charcoal grill. Just poured me a good 3oz of Wild Turkey 101, I'm sure that's not good for me either but I'm still going to drink it.

I bet the alcohol in the Bourbon, will counteract the chemicals in the charcoal. I think I better go pour me another.

I don’t believe gas will effect you but the chemicals they put in it to make it stink probably will.

I believe the oldest living veteran in the US is 112 years old and smokes cigars and drinks whisky.

I use both depending on the application. Hell, I take 7 pills a day for the rest of my bad habits.

Not surprised by the answer. That said, what we are cooking is usually the bigger health risk I suspect than the fuel source. “Good news! Pork belly on a gasser is healthy! Now pass me another beer.”

I've heard that charcoal tablets help with the gas.
