AVOID: Chargrilled Meat
- Cooking meat too long and at too high a heat creates dangerous compounds called “advanced glycation endproducts”, or “AGEs” for short.
- AGEs, as the name implies, age you, including your skin, by causing inflammation.
- To avoid creating AGEs, don’t chargrill your meat. Avoid a blackened crust and cook only as much as is needed to kill pathogens.
