Chow Down With Chip – Myth: Red Meat Causes Cancer

Reality: Research says enjoy the steak!

Red Meat

In a 1986 study, Japanese researchers discovered cancer developing in rats that were fed “heterocyclic amines,” compounds that are generated from overcooking meat under high heat. Since then, some studies of large populations have suggested a potential link between meat and cancer. Yet no study has ever found a direct cause-and-effect relationship between red-meat consumption and cancer. The population studies are far from conclusive. They relied on broad surveys of people’s eating habits and health afflictions—numbers that illuminate trends, not causes.

Put the Truth to Work for You: Don’t stop grilling. Meat lovers who are worried about the supposed risks of grilled meat don’t need to avoid burgers and steak—just trim off the burned or overcooked sections of the meat before eating.
