·         Spice it up! Marinate your meat, poultry and fish. Studies show that marinating your food for at least 30 minutes can prevent the formation of cancer-causing chemicals.


·         Add an antioxidant rich acid to your marinade mix such as fresh orange, lemon or lime juice. This may block cancer-causing chemicals from developing.


·         Cook fish away from the flame by using a cedar plank or by wrapping it in zucchini. You can also flip frequently to avoid charring or burning.
