Dr. Elaine Chin. Going ‘viral’ with over half a million accounts reached is an abstract concept for many of us who have healthcare careers and post for the purpose of getting important evidence-based information out to people. Recently I posted a Cancer Awareness Series. The risk of BBQ foods went ‘viral’. I’m ‘at risk’ for colon cancer because of my family history.
Dr. Elaine Chin. Did you know that cooking over high heat, especially an open flame, can expose you to potential cancer-causing compounds like heterocyclic aromatic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs)? Studies show that these harmful compounds can cause changes in DNA that may increase the risk of cancer.
