Cooking meats may create carcinogenic compounds,
especially if the meat is cooked at a high heat.
However, a recent study reveals rosemary may
minimize those compounds. In the study, adding a bit
of rosemary extract to hamburger patty mixtures
before cooking helped reduce the formation of the
harmful substances.

Cooking beef, chicken, pork, and fish at high
temperatures results in the formation of heterocyclic
amines (HCAs), compounds that can cause genetic
mutations that may increase the risk of colorectal,
esophageal, prostate, and breast cancers. In a recent
study, researchers compared the effects of rosmarinic
acid and rosemary extract antioxidant powder on the
formation of HCAs in ground beef patties fried at
different temperatures for different amounts of time.
Researchers found that antioxidants in both rosmarinic
acid and rosemary extract reduced the formation of
HCAs. To make cooked meat healthier, use the lowest
temperature possible to raise the meat's temperature
to the appropriate point to kill all food-borne
pathogens. Turning the meat often on the skillet, grill,
