okay could someone please tell me the differences, any that you can possibly think of, between burnt food v. regular. ie a reallly burnt hamburger v a rare one. time is kind of essence because we're having a debate over it right now

Burnt foods are crunchy, rare are squishy... :D When something such as a hamburger or steak is under-cooked, you're more likely to get sick, not to mention no one wants a steak so rare that you need a band-aid for it.

sorrry i guess we're talking about whether or not eating food that has been especially burnt is baed for you. like that something changes in teh parts that are burnt that is not as good for your body

you want your food cooked med-med well. make sure the stuff is dead. no band-aids or moo-ing thank you.

i don't think you understand what i'm getting at. when you burn something, you change all kinds of physical properties on the burnt parts. we're talking about whether or not these changes are detrimental to your health

I think there are probably studies out showing that anything will give you cancer.

umm, yeah, but what we are talking about here is something that is just bad for you... Saying that "anything can cause cancer" doesnt really help answer any question that was being asked here.

So burning food is bad for you?

Yeah, it destroys it and makes it a carcinogen. Kind of like inhaling smoke from a cigarrette.

the "burnt" food that contains carcinogens is that black charred outside that comes from grilling

If you burn the food in a pan or oven i dont think its bad for your. When they talk about the "char" part causing cancer they are referring to the burned part when using a charcoal grill. If you burn a burger black on a grill it has had alot of time to soak up the chemicals coming from the coals.
