Dr J. Scott Smith of Kansas State University in Manhattan explained thatrepparttar antioxidants in rosemary are also found in smaller amounts in other herbs such as oregano, sage and basil. The antioxidants are likely to reduce HCAs by blockingrepparttar 149423 chemical process that createsrepparttar 149424 cancer-causing compounds, Smith noted. To keep meat safe, Smith recommended avoiding cooking it at extremely high temperatures. Adding spices couldn't hurt, he noted, and may makerepparttar 149425 meat even safer.
