Epidemiological evidence indicate that exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) consumed with grilled meat might be hazardous for health. We used 3 different types of grills. 16 PAHs congeners were measured. PAHs exposure to charcoal briquettes incineration products might be even 10 times higher than in case of other types of barbecues.
