Barbecue Trying to Kill You, The Planet
This is bound to whip somebody into a panic: Mother Nature Network is reporting that the smoke produced by cooking fatty foods may contain carcinogens. Scientists have done a study which shows that cooking food releases emissions, and the biggest offenders seem to be fatty foods cooked with high heat, such as fried chicken or charcoal-grilled hamburgers. The story is dubious, preying on people's ignorance that smells are actually created by these emissions and likening grilled meat smell to secondhand smoke. Please don't tell the City of New York, or someone will try to ban restaurants.
