Rockpool Bar & Grill on Urbanspoon

During the evening everyone ate alot of seared meat. Some learned authorities question the health implications of having food that is tinged with carbon. For example from BBQ and extreme lava hot sizziling hot plates or nuclear stir fries. The evidence appears to be equivocal for the moment but see this article at http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Cancer_and_food 

QUOTE
  • Burnt or barbecued foods – a group of carcinogenic substances called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) can be produced if foods are overheated or burnt. Although charred or smoked foods could contain traces of PAHs, experts agree that the amount in the average Australian diet is too low to be considered a significant cancer risk. However, when cooking, it’s best to use relatively low temperature methods wherever possible, and limit your intake of char-grilled meats and foods. Low-temperature cooking methods include steaming, boiling, poaching, stewing, casseroling, braising, baking and microwaving or roasting.
