Go Easy on the Meat

Nov 07, 2010 11:20PM

Meat has traditionally had a proud place at holiday tables, but recent research from the University of Texas cautions that people who eat meat frequently, especially red meat that is cooked medium or well-done, may run a higher risk of developing bladder cancer.

The UK Food Standards Agency suggests that people can reduce their risk by cooking at lower temperatures for a longer period of time and keeping flames from touching food when barbecuing or grilling.
