Default BBQ'ued and grilled food is bad for your health...

As much as I hate to admit it, I eat way too much grilled, smoked food. It has been scientifically proven that eating food that is charred, or cooked over charcoal, greatly increases your risk of cancer. Now before you go arguing, keep in mind that I am absolutely passionate about grilling, smoking meat; I just got done cooking some chicken thighs. What I am trying to say is, if somone who is extremely passionate about grilling and smoking food is saying, " hmmm...is this going to give me cancer?" then there must be something here. I just wanted to get some mature feedback on this topic.

Sincerely,

Tyler

Well, pretty much everything we eat or drink is "killing us," that is why we should be eating all things in moderation...but if this is worrying you that much, don't eat them anymore.

Quit smoking cigarettes 10 years ago... took up smoking meats instead.

Breathing air which contains oxygen (a proven oxidizer) will kill you also, it just takes a long time most times.

Personally I do not worry about eating grilled or BBQ'ed food. There are many other ways to live longer like not going into certain neighborhoods after dark, not falling asleep before the wife after a big argument, not diving into a empty pool after drinking several beers, ect.

Go ahead and have another rack of ribs and enjoy the life you are living at the moment.

Everything causes cancer. This ain't no health food but neither is beer. I find it amusing when some people worry about Gluten or MSG and ignore the 800 pound gorilla in the room.

Any meat cooked at high temps , including fried or broiled , will produce carcinogens .
Also when grilling , the fat dripping down on the coals or flame will produce a "carcinogenic " smoke that is deposited on the meat . I am not that worried , everything in moderation.

And when I BBQ its " low and slow " and the fat does not touch the coals/flame...

According to research, once a month is considered a moderate intake of such type foods....

Let's face it, how many of us actually eat BBQ only once a month? I am not trying to make this into a debate; there is nothing to debate---it is a scientific fact that it will increase your risk of cancer. I guess I was just curious how people (including myself) justify eating these types of foods without ever questioning the long-term side effects. Maybe this isn't a topic about BBQ, maybe it is about diet in general. I feel like I am going off on a tangent, so let's just all agree that barbecue is something that should be eaten in moderation, but all of us eat too much of.

Give me barbecue....or give me death!!!!!

Sincerely,

Tyler

This reminds me of the 80's scare of eggs being bad for you...turns out, that's not necessarily true. I think that I'll keep on keeping on and keel over when it's time. So many things out there are bad for you, you'll never get away from it all! The fumes from pumping gas into your car are bad for you, but do you alter your driving route to minimize how often you fill up for that reason? Any free radical in your bado is prone to mutate a cell into cancer, and we're born with those cells already in our body. I've seen people that don't excercise, eat a bad diet and smoke like a chimney live longer than others that do all of the right things in regards to good health. It's all going to come to an end at some point, might as well go with a full tummy of yummy food and a smile on your face!!!
