We all know that eating too much barbecue food can cause cancer, but there are still many people who can’t help their mouth addiction and want to eat. Especially in summer, invite three or five friends, eat barbecue outdoors with the breeze blowing, and drink two sips of cold beer, and the fatigue of the day will be dispelled in this idleness. So, is there any way to make your barbecue eat scientifically and healthily? You have to pay attention to the following points.

1.Leafy vegetables and fruits cannot be roasted.
It turns out that when it comes to barbecue, people think of grilled meat and grilled seafood. But in the past two years, there have been many fresh eating methods, such as green spinach, long leeks, and crisp and sweet apples…it seems that any vegetable and fruit can be eaten roasted.

But in fact, since crispy and tender vegetables are grilled on charcoal fire, it is difficult to control the heating time. After a little longer, they are easy to burn and may be more likely to produce carcinogens than meat. Moreover, the nutritional value of vegetables and fruits is largely reflected in the rich vitamins, but excessive heating will destroy them.

2.Potatoes should be cooked medium.
Roast some sweet potatoes, potatoes, and lotus root when grilling meat, which can not only nourish the stomach but also increase dietary fiber, which is beneficial to balancing minerals. But remember, the potatoes must be baked to medium. Half-baked potato slices have the effect of cleaning the intestines. In addition to potatoes, some vegetables with thick flesh can also be grilled, such as onions, green peppers, eggplants, carrots, etc., which can provide rich dietary fiber and minerals.

3.Seafood must be baked for a long time.
Grilled oysters and grilled scallops are currently the most popular ways to eat grilled seafood, but their biggest problem is that they are easy to be cooked outside and raw inside. Seafood contains pathogenic bacteria such as Vibrio parahaemolyticus, which have strong heat resistance and can be killed above 80°C, and there may even be parasite eggs. In general, steaming seafood is safest. If you’re craving grilled seafood, try to bake it as long as possible. It is best to eat it with garlic and mustard, which has a bactericidal effect.

4.The grilled meat is eaten with vegetables.
Eating grilled meat wrapped in raw green leafy vegetables can greatly reduce the toxicity of carcinogens. Or mix a cold dish with cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower, which is a “detoxification enzyme” that accelerates the discharge of carcinogens. It is best to eat barley tea or green tea with barley tea, preferably warm, which can relieve greasily, protect the stomach, and avoid alternating hot and cold stimulation. It is best not to brush the barbecue sauce while grilling, so as not to ingest too much salt. Meat can be marinated before grilling, or barbecue sauce can be diluted with water and spread over the ingredients.

5.Eat more pears and tomatoes after a barbecue.
Many people dare not eat barbecue because it is easy to produce carcinogens during barbecue. Anyway, you should not eat too much barbecue. Women who eat barbecue are prone to lack water and wrinkles. But what if you really can’t control your mouth? Here are the remedies.

A research team from Seoul University School of Medicine in South Korea published a report pointing out that the carcinogen polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons accumulated in the body after eating barbecue will be significantly reduced after eating pears. Therefore, eating a pear after a meal can expel a large number of carcinogens accumulated in the body.

In addition, residents of Mediterranean countries such as Greece and Italy often eat barbecue food, but the incidence of tumors (cervical cancer, prostate cancer, liver cancer, etc.) there is relatively low. What is the reason for this? Because residents often eat tomato products – tomato sauce.

They often use tomato sauce as a condiment when grilling fish and meat. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which has a strong antioxidant capacity and the ability to block the synthesis of carcinogens. Vitamin C contained in tomatoes and other fruits also can block the synthesis of nitrosamines in the body. So after eating barbecue, be sure to eat more pears and tomatoes.
