    Study: Cooked meat contains carcinogens in significant studies, review?

    Primal Fuel
    *Study: Cooked meat contains carcinogens in significant quantities, review?

    The cooked meat carcinogen 2-amino-1-methyl-6-phe... [Cancer Res. 2007] - PubMed - NCBI
    The Cooked Meat Carcinogen 2-Amino-1-Methyl-6-Phenylimidazo[4,5-b]Pyridine Activates the Extracellular Signal

    It isn't an epidemiological study so don't be so quick to dismiss it. Reading some of it, their conclusion seems pretty reasonable. They claim that cooking meat leads to creation of carcinogens, which when ingested enter blood plasma and lead to physiological changes at the cellular level. However I can't really find what cooking methods they have determined leads to significant levels of carcinogens, nor if meat quality matters. Additionally the overall increase in risk, of cancer, isn't mentioned.

    Is there anyone with more experience in biological sciences, or who has heard of this study, who could provide a review of the paper? I haven't been able to find a review from googling it.

    Thanks for the instruction. I shan't be running around like a headless chicken over a foodstuff that people have been eating for hundreds of thousands of years, however.

    The real question here, it seems to me, is are you going to regularly burn your meat and eat the burnt portions?

    I thought that was pretty much an accepted general rule that it's best to avoid charring your meat. The best you can do is minimize these substances by not burning your meat at extremely high heat and offsetting them with other protective foods.

    Yeah this is well known, and just about everything is a carcinogen, lol.

    The study claims that these carcinogens are produced in normal cooking of meat. And "we done it for millions of years, so its not harmful" isn't a proper rebuttal to what this research claims.

    That's why we cook our meat at low temperatures, and go on the rare side. It took a little getting use to, but now I can straight up eat raw meat. I don't do it, I do prefer my pathogens dead for the most part. But it's not as revolting as it first seemed.

    Have you ever eaten a raw vegan? The news always says they're really good for you.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Don't get me wrong. I cook my veggies to a mush! But I've never liked the taste of burned food. Even when you're supposed to, like barbeque. I often got mad at grown-ups for burning the meat. I'd tell these well-,meaning, generous and hapless adults to pay attention and stop burning the meat (Ah, aspergers - how I love you). But, mmm, yum, I like my meat rare!

    Ehm no it doesnt. They didnt even cook meat for this study, they just used the heterocyclic amines for an in-vitro study. The only thing this study says, is that these carcinogens are potentially dangerous even at lower doses than previously thought.
