Marinade Against Cancer

From Prevention Magazine (Aug 09 P. 52), saturating red meat in a wine or beer based marinade before grilling can reduce the amount of carcinogenic compounds associated with grilling. According to a study from the University of Porto in Portugal, a six hour soak dropped levels of harmful substances by up to eighty-eight percent.

A different study from Kansas State University found that preparing beef with rosemary reduced the same compounds by seventy-seven percent.

Thereʼs no need for hours of overnight marinating, with Caricoʼs Ultra-Vac it can be effectively done in a few minutes.
