Scientist in the recent revelations announces that the overcooked and over boiled meat could have the possibility of twice as much as the cancer risks than the earlier thoughts. The warning comes after they found that the dark crust formed on the outside of a well-done steak or joint of red meat more than doubles the risk of intestinal tumors. The red meat has the more and more possibility of it as due to non availability of good meats the red meat has to be boiled more and more to suit the taste and in the process it garners the bad dark crust among the meat portion and in the process it enters into the intestine and making the life more and more worse.
Frying and grilling are particularly risky because the intense heat turns the sugars and amino acids of muscle tissue into high levels of cancer-causing compounds. Especially the grilled and the tanduri mode of making the dishes could have adverse and very dangerous effect on the health of the eater as due to grill and frying of the meat the sugar is then turned into amino acids which is the prime reason for the cancer. The cancer causing agents such as food mutants can be generated in the meat while cooking at a very high temperature by using the grills and frying. These compounds, called HCAs, are carcinogenic. Other cancer-causing substances, so-called food mutagens, occur at high temperatures when frying or grilling.
This research has been done on mice; this process of change has been clearly observed.” We wanted to study tumor development in the intestines of the ‘human-like’ mice and compare this with tumor development in normal mice given the same food mutagen,” the Daily Express quoted the researchers as saying.
The incidents of intestinal tumors increased from 31 per cent to 80 per cent in case if you eat the meat like this. It is better to act now and be healthy for this so that in the long drawn process you will not catch any health hazards. As we all know health is the real wealth and in order to save ours health we should always be alert and read all relevant information and observer them before research them fully so that we will be always healthy and happy.
