The $2 million six year study at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory found the Well done ground beef contains three newly discovered mutagens and three known mutagens. Two other mutagens also were found but they have not been identified or tested in animals. Two of the three previously known mutagens Are known to cause malignant tutors in mice and rats said senior biomedical scientist James s. Felton. The risk to humans from any of them remains unknown the scientists said. Mutagens Are compounds that change genetic material in cells and sometimes can cause cancer in animals said Felton who presented his findings Here at the annual meeting of the american association for cancer research. Sperm and egg cell mutations and damage to chromosomes which determine inherited traits can cause birth defects. Arthur j. Miller head scientist at the . Department of agriculture research Laboratory in Philadelphia said previous studies have found traces of unidentified mutagens in other Well done muscle meats including other beef cuts pork Chicken and fish with spines although not in shellfish or Organ meats like liver.

Four caused mutations and chromosome damage in chinese Hamster cells and live mice and japanese scientists previously showed two induce the malignant tutors in rodents he added. A a we re talking about frying and broiling. If you Cook your meat at lower temperatures and make it Well done like stewing braising microwaving or baking you done to seem to get the degree of mutagens you do when you Cook with a hot flame or hot surface like a frying pan a Felton said. He said the chemicals Are formed by frying or broiling hamburger until Well done with the temperatures of the pan surface above 300 degrees fahrenheit a medium High stove setting. They Are different than a known Carcinogen found on charred barbecued meat he said adding that barbecuing produces fewer aromatic amines than frying or broiling. Moscow apr officials of the .
