shish kebab and ketchup
Oncologist Marina Shorina: when preparing kebab and other grilled and grilled dishes, carcinogens can be released.

Oncologist Shorina warned that potentially carcinogenic compounds are present in large quantities in burnt meat and in the smoke emitted by burning wood and coals. Such carcinogens can actively settle in the lungs and on the mucous membrane of the stomach and intestines. Under the influence of these substances, dangerous cellular changes occur. According to the doctor, due to the ability of carcinogens to integrate into the DNA structure, cells undergo an uncontrolled process of growth and division, leading to the appearance of tumors.
Marina Shorina explained when eating kebab contributes to the development of cancer – its risk is primarily increased by too frequent and abundant consumption .

“If a person eats kebab once, the body will cope with unwanted processes. If this is a systemic situation, when something is constantly being cooked on the grill or barbecue, then the processes caused by carcinogens are repeated, and the body does not have time to cope with it. Then cancer can form,” the oncologist shared with Channel Five.
Shorina added that the harmful substances of such dishes also have a negative effect on metabolism and the general condition of the body.

In turn, gastroenterologist Guzel Evstigneeva said that the crust that forms on pieces of kebab contains H-proteins that can accumulate in the body. This increases the risk of more intense aging and the development of chronic inflammation.

How much kebab can you eat without harm to your health. Doctors recommend consuming it no more than once a week in an amount not exceeding 250 grams (cooked meat).

Earlier, the portal wrote that doctor Alexander Myasnikov named foods that provoke inflammation in the body.
