Grilling Can Be Healthy
Many people like to barbecue in the summer, but cooking food on a grill has potential health dangers. Good News: You can relax and enjoy barbecued

food safely if you take a few steps to protect yourself. What to avoid: Grilling foods at very high heat or for long periods of
time can create carcinogenic compounds. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are formed when any food, including meats and vegetables, is charred. Don’t cook your food to a charred crisp, and do scrape off any part that is blackened. Cook meats thoroughly but on the lowest heat and shortest Directions

pork, beef, fish or chicken) before cooking can reduce HCAs by as much as 70%. The benefit of marinating is that it increases the high heat f or 5 minutes on each side or moisture content of the food, which prevents the chemical reaction in the fish or meat that produces carcinogens at high heats. Marinating for as little as 10 minutes is enough. Marinades with antioxidant-rich spices, such as hot pepper, allspice, sesame and ginger, are particularly protective, say University of Western Ontario researchers. houghts on Time

Partially cook meat, poultry or fish in the kitchen, then finish on

Cook plenty of vegetables. They taste great, are full of antioxidants,
and have no creatine, the chemical in meat that creates HCAs. • Keep the flame and the heat low, and flip the food frequently (about
