ATLANTA (WAOK) – For many of us, Memorial Day weekend is typically the first time we pull out the grill for the summer. But a lot of research connects charred, grilled meats to cancer-causing substances. Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic say you can decrease your risk by marinating and pre-cooking red meat. Cooking the meat a little beforehand means it’ll spend less time on the grill forming those cancer-forming components. Ground turkey doesn’t pose the same risk as red meat but you should still avoid charring it.
