Think you’re eliminating the health risks of animal flesh by not eating it?
That’s not necessarily the case.
If you live with people that fry or grill flesh, or outside a restaurant, particularly Chinese, you might be taking in fumes that increase your risk of cancer.
Similar thing applies if you’re pregnant and your partner cooks flesh while you’re around: you may be putting your child at risk of things such as lower birth weight or smaller head size.
Young kids also risk cognitive impairment as a result of taking in flesh fumes.
