Preliminary results of a study on people who eat grilled or well-done meat find they were at risk for developing high blood pressure. Dr. John Phillips of Ohio Health says that none of the 100-thousand who took part in the study started out with hypertension.
People who preferred meat well-done as opposed to rare had a 15% higher chance of developing high blood pressure as well and the bad news doesn't stop there. Phillips says that when meat is cooked well-done, cancer-causing chemicals can be formed.
They found that people who ate grilled, broiled, or roasted meat or fish more than 15 times a month had a 17% higher chance of developing high blood pressure.
