Tuesday Tips: How plant-based foods help fight cancer
The easy way to beat cancer with Guinness
Meat and alcohol are happy bedfellows. Happier still when you add fire. But to safeguard your health and improve the taste of the meat you grill, you need to douse it in the one absolutely essential ingredient: Guinness. Happy St. Paddy’s day, gentlemen.
Cuts cooked over charcoal form carcinogenic compounds called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which are also in cigarette smoke and car exhausts. Neither of which is conducive to an enjoyable steak. But according to research published in the Journal of Agriculture and Food Chemistry, pouring your pint over your chops could cut out the carcinogens. Scientists bathed pork loins in three beers for four hours, then grilled them, and found less than half the PAH level compared to unmarinated meat.
The effect was most marked with dark beers like stout and porter, but since non-alcoholic ale also lowered PAH levels, researchers think the effects might be down to the beer’s antioxidant properties.
