      Grilling this Memorial Day? Here is a warning!

      Some charred, grilled meats have been linked to cancer.

      A study published in the "Journal of Food Science" found marinated steaks had a significant reduction in the amount of carcinogenic compounds after grilling. There are some things you can do to decrease your risk:

      - Marinate your meat in some type of balsamic vinegar or an olive-based{} dressing.- Do not to burn your beef on the grill because the cancer causing chemicals develop when the meat is charred.- Use a food thermometer to ensure your meat is cooked to the proper internal temperature.- You could also pre-cook the meat so it spends less time on the grill.- Try ground turkey -- it{} doesn't pose quite the risk red meat does.
