BBQ kidney cancer link?: Grilled Meat Cancer

BBQ kidney cancer link?: Grilled Meat Cancer, A new study links grilled and barbecued meat to one type of cancer.

Two weeks ago, the World Health Organization declared processed meat a carcinogen.

Now a new study links grilled and barbecued meat to kidney cancer.

Here’s a warning for those who love pan fried meats, or backyard barbecues with lots of steak.

A new study in the Journal of Cancer Research links higher meat consumption with a higher risk of kidney cancer.

Researchers examined the diets and genetic information of kidney-cancer patients, then compared them with healthy men and women.

They found the kidney cancer patients ate more meat, both red and white, than the healthy people.

Specifically, they looked at meat cooked over an open flame, which health experts say can create carcinogens.

They also found a certain genetic mutation that made the patients more vulnerable to kidney cancer, suggesting genetics may play a role.

One thing to keep in mind, the research only looked at the most common type of kidney cancer: renal cell carcinoma.

Researchers add, people should not stop eating meat, just eat in moderation, and don’t burn it.
