21 drew1492 Cooking meat at high temperatures causes some of the amino acids that make up the muscle tissue to chemically react to form two classes of carcinogenic compounds: [polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polycyclic_aromatic_hydrocarbon) and [heterocyclic amines](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heterocyclic_amine).
