Independence Day is Friday, and for many people that means firing up the grill. However, grilling can increase the risk for cancer. "Grilling allows much of the fat to drain out of meat during cooking," explains assistant professor of nutrition Jennifer Weddig, a registered dietician. "But when fat drips onto the fire, the flames cause compounds to form in meat which may cause cancer. These compounds - carcinogens - form more on high-fat meats and meats that have been charred on the outside," Weddig explained.
To limit carcinogens, try a marinade with citrus juice. "Marinating meat may reduce the cancer risk associated with grilling," she says. Other ways to avoid producing carcinogens is by using leaner cuts of meat, trimming fat off of meat and precooking the meat so it spends less time on the grill.
