Beer Marinade Makes Grilled Meat Healthier

The next time you fire up the grill, you may want to marinate your meat with beer.

Researchers from Portugal and Spain found beer lowered the amount of cancer causing compounds that form during the grilling process.

The study found dark beers were the most effective, lowering the carcinogens by more than 50%.

Light and non alcoholic beers lowered carcinogens by less than 25%.

Scientists think the benefits have something to do with the high number of antioxidants found in beer.
