FACT: When meat, fish and poultry are cooked, CARCINOGENIC chemicals called heterocyclic amines are created that INCREASE the risk of breast, colon, lung, pancreatic and prostate cancer.
FACT: It doesn't matter what cooking method you use: grilling, frying or baking will give you the SAME results.
FACT: Just cooking the meat produces a SIGNIFICANT PRODUCTION of cancer-causing compounds.
FACT: The top 3 offenders: Bacon, fish and chicken. These 3 produce the HIGHEST LEVELS of these cancer-causing compounds. It doesn't exclude other meats, they all produce these chemicals, but these 3 are the top 3 winners.
FACT: When meat is well-done, the risk of cancer increases by 5 times! Undercooked meat can cause food poisoning from e-coli....especially chicken....it's a known fact that all chicken purchased in the marked is COVERED with e-coli bacteria....the USDA is well aware of this as they perform the testing making sure the levels of e-coli fall within the safe guidelines.....there is no such thing as "safe e-coli".....it causes food poisoning!
However, I do have good news. The levels of heterocyclic amines flowing through one's body may drop to ZERO after refraining from eating meat for just 24 hours. So, if you just choose to follow Meatless Mondays for instance, have no meat at breakfast, lunch or dinner on Monday, by Tuesday morning the carcinogenic compounds flowing through your blood could drop to ZERO.....but, you also have to refrain from cigarettes, eggs, and cheese because they have the SAME compounds.
And we wonder WHY so many people are diagnosed with or have died from cancer..........
