High consumers of processed meat products may be at increased risk of developing colorectal cancer compared to low- or non-consumers of these types of meat.
Fried meat contains high quantity of carcinogenic and mutagenic heterocyclic amines.
High consumption of well-cooked red meat that contains carcinogenic heterocyclic amines is associated with a greater risk of colorectal adenoma, breast cancer, and lung cancer.
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,...
