Second Hand Flesh Fumes

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.
