    I figured with BBQ season just around the
    corner, this article might give some 'food
    for thought'.


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A compound formed
    when meat is charred at high temperatures --
    as in barbecue -- encourages the growth of
    prostate cancer in rats, researchers reported
    on Sunday.

    Their study, presented at a meeting of the American
    Association for Cancer Research, may help explain
    the link between eating meat and a higher risk of
    prostate cancer.

    It also fits in with other studies suggesting that
    cooking meat until it chars might cause cancer.
    The compound, called PhIP, is formed when meat
    is cooked at very high temperatures, Dr. Angelo
    De Marzo and colleagues at Johns Hopkins University
    in Baltimore reported.It appears to both initiate
    and promote the growth of prostate cancer
    in rats, they said.

    "We stumbled across a new potential interaction
    between ingestion of cooked meat in the diet
    and cancer in the rat," De Marzo said in a
    statement.

    "For humans, the biggest problem is that it's
    extremely difficult to tell how much PhIP you've
    ingested, since different amounts are formed
    depending on cooking conditions."

    For the study, Yatsutomo Nakai and other
    members of De Marzo's team mixed PhIP into
    food given to rats for up to eight weeks, then
    studied the animals' prostates, intestines and
    spleens. They found genetic mutations in all
    the organs after four weeks.

    Oh this is ridiculous:biggrin1: Meat has a high fat content. It clogs arteries and blocks the prostate. Soon, we wont' be able to eat veggies.:rolleyes:

    Thanks for the tips, Windy.

    1. What he said.

    2. I eagerly await next week's study that shows that an absence of grilled meat in one's diet leads to another, equally depressing, form of cancer.

    3. We all have to die of something. *shrugs*:cool:

    I think that telling me that it's going to rain on the May 2-4, Canada Day, and Civic Holiday weekends would have done a better job. :tongue:

    Actually, I think that would depress me more than getting prostate cancer! :biggrin1:

    You aren't some kind of monarchist, are you? :eek:

    I normally refer to it as the May Beer weekend.

    Well, I'm not a drinker and if it's
    going to be a holiday, people should
    at least be aware of why they got
    the long weekend to open the drinking
    season with fireworks and beer! :wink:
