Isn't it common knowledge that when you grill meat you create carcinogenic material?


#3

Eeesh, thankfully the only thing i like there are the hotwings. But i cant even stomach them for more than once every couple months. Learn to fry your own chicken people.


#4

Those assholes at KFC!


#5

im still gonna eat it lol


#6

Isn't that one of the compounds formed by cooking any type of meat?


#7

I had at least half a big tub of KFC this weekend. Good stuff.


#8

I didn't tell ya not too, just thought the article was interesting.


#9

Isn't everything carcinogenic these days according to doctors?


#10

woah, remind me never to walk out in the sunshine again either.


#11

Yes, cancer results from many sources. It can be environmental factors, such dangerous things as sunlight for instance. Just don't overdo stuff and don't be a homo about tstuff.

I like the new grilled chicken. However, I looked up the ingredients and found that they use MSG in the spices. I'm not sensitive to it, but try not to eat it if I can. I'll get the grilled chicken in a pinch, though.

As an alternative, I usually get a whole rotisserie chicken (2lb) from my supermarket. Just as tasty and nothing more than salt and some herbs on it for about 5-7 bucks.

Yes. It seems to form more in red meat than in fish or poultry, but grilling any meat causes it to be formed. I don't know why they're targeting KFC specifically with this.

The harmful effects of PHiP and other molecules in its family can be greatly reduced simply by marinating with citrus fruit and/or eating something with quercitin with the charred meat.

This is the type of quote that our grandchildren will say their "grandpa always said...". I like it.

It will be interesting to think I might be listening to Alice in Chains and 2Pac in the nursing home.


#15

Quoted for the mother fucking truth.

Delicious. Picking one up tomorrow. Thanks for reminding me.


#16

Win

And yes x3 to the whole chickens, one setting on a good day and I'm licking the rib bones for the last bit of breast.


#17

Yea... this is silly -_- .


#18

Guess not.


#19

Whole chickens have phytoestrogens from being heated in that plastic.


#20

Whatever those are, taste fucking delicious.
