Before cranking up that grill this summer, you may want to think twice.
There are so many things we love that are bad for us, according to research. Tack this onto the list: grilling. So here’s the scoop. The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health did the testing and found that meats cooked at high temperature can raise your blood pressure.
The good news is, if you opt for not eating well done meats, the risk is lower.
The study followed over 100 thousand people for over 10 years. A third of the subjects got high blood pressure. Those that liked their meat well done, had a 15-percent higher jump of high BP.
Researchers aren’t sure why the results were so startling. some studies suggest cooking meat at high-temperatures could lead certain chemicals to form, inducing oxidative stress, inflammation and insulin resistance in animals, and the risk of high blood pressure.
