Turns Out Making Carne Asada Is Worse Than Breathing Car Exhaust
Study finds that the carne asada you're grilling up actually emits more toxic gases than your car.
These toxic particles get into your bloodstream and settle in your lungs, liver, brain, and heart, causing damage to your organs.
The World Health Organization says that a safe level of PM2.5 is 10 micrograms per cubic meter; people making carne asada are exposed to 200 micrograms per cubic meter - 20x the safe level.
Apparently, the study also found that even making toast exposes you to more toxic gas than 20 minutes breathing car fumes in a high traffic city center.
