Fried meat contains high quantity of carcinogenic and mutagenic heterocyclic amines.
Fried, grilled, and baked meats contain mutagens, such as heterocyclic amines (HCA). Well-cooked meats produce heterocyclic amines (HCA), which are potent mutagens. This study examined the quantities and types of heterocyclic amines (PhlP, MelQx, and DiMelQx,) produced in meats prepared by cooking methods commonly use by U.S meat consumers. Researchers assessed the PhlP, MelQx, DiMelQx,...
