This or That?
That. Go with propane
Lugging a propane tank to your grill may feel like a hassle, but the planet will thank you for it. Natural gas is another efficient, clean-burning alternative, if your house is outfitted for it.
Keep things healthy for both the Earth and your family when you fire up the grill this weekend with a few other tips:
• Don’t get burned
Overly blackened burgers and chicken contain cancer-causing compounds called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, which were recently found to increase risks for pancreatic cancer. And all that blackened soot adds pollution to the air.
• Consider a skewer
Buy organic meat, but use it as an accent, on, say, kabobs, rather than a main dish. You’ll cut your ecofootprint, and recent studies suggest cutting back on red meat can boost your heart health and protect your vision.
