29. So, it's probably just the presence of substances...
...they've decided are carcinogenic, rather than any data on BBQed meat-eating, which they are using here. The problem with that is that it doesn't take into account any number of other factors which may go into eating grilled meat. There may be some substance or process which blocks the absorbtion of the carcinogens, I don't know, and apparently they don't either. I mean, be informed, that's cool, I'm just not going to fear my beer can chicken or steak because the AP had a slow night.
