12. Smoked Meat
Smoked barbecue meat, which is famously tender and delicious, is also loaded with carcinogens.
During the smoking process the meat absorbs tar from the smoke, which in turn is absorbed by your body when eaten.
Tar is found in tobacco, which is the leading cause of cancer.
Meanwhile, grilled meats (when prepared with the proper cooking oil) can cut the carcinogen content down significantly.
Pass on the smoked brisket next time you go out for dinner.
