FOR THE BURN? |
There has been some controversy lately about
the dangers of eating burnt or blackened food - linking overcooked barbecue foods
with a hightened risk of cancer. Some think that it is only burnt meat that causes
risks, others go further claiming that all well-done food is carcinogenic.
Natalie Savona from Healthy magazine says 'Cancer is increasingly thought to
be caused by environmental and not genetic triggers. The environmental trigger
is invariably oxidation - hence the importance of anti-oxidants in our diet. Any
combustion process (smoking, barbecuing etc) involves oxidation, so charred food
is likely to be full of oxidants. But I wouldn't suggest people avoid cooking
on a barbecue, grill or griddle. The key is to minimise your exposure - cook your
food for the right amount of time and don't eat it if it's burnt'.
undercooked meat especially barbecue - style, also has dangerous health risks
so do try to strike the right balance when using this method of cooking. And if
you burn your toast, throw it away - it's not worth the risk!
That a strong yearning for salty food may start in the womb? Researchers at the
University in Haifia, Israel indicates that pregnant women suffering from morning
sickness are more likely to increase their salt intake during this time and that
the sodium loss during sickness may pre-dispose newborns to a higher salt desire.
Although in some ways it is less harmful to crave savoury tastes than sweet
foods, too much salt can increase your risk of high blood pressure, stomach cancer
and even heart attacks. A need for salt could be an indication that you are dehydrated,
so increase your fluid intake before resorting to extra salt.
If you really
must salt your food, switch to a potassium - substituted version which has some
of the sodium removed.
