Summer Supper Showdown: Charcoal vs. Gas Grilling

Which is Healthier?

Nothing quite says summer like gathering with friends and family around the grill on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Before you decide what to serve, the question is how to prepare it: charcoal grills vs. gas grills? If the healthier option is your goal, let’s compare them to see which one comes out ahead!

No matter their preference, charcoal or gas, you should consider treating the grill master in your life to one of IonLoop’s magnetic bracelets for men -- a fashion forward accessory that supports his overall health and wellness.

The Original BBQ King: Charcoal

Charcoal is no stranger to a barbecue! It is a traditional way to grill food and traditional grill masters stand by this method. However, it would be interesting to see how these grill masters feel when charcoal is dissected from a health standpoint.

The challenge with charcoal is that you cannot control the temperature, which could result in an increased formation of harmful PAHs. Otherwise known as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, these compounds, made of carbon and hydrogen, are not easily broken down and negatively impact the environment, since the PAHs last a long time in the atmosphere. The practical uses of PAHs are associated with the creation of dyes, plastics, and pesticides. Is that something you want sharing space with your summer dinner?

Not to mention your lungs!

Breathing in the smoke that comes from burning charcoal can present some lasting, unpleasant results. The health concerns may include everything from cataracts, jaundice, and kidney and liver damage. Not so pleasant for a barbecue with the family!

Best to Get on Board with Gas Grilling

Gas grilling (either with natural gas or propane) is overall better for you. When it comes to those two major checkpoints of smoke emissions and temperature control, gas grilling wins. With this method, you can keep the temperature below 300℉, which is safer and still gets the job done!

A grilling option that returns less smoke also does some favors for your body and the environment. Obviously, from an environmental standpoint, less smoke is better! By keeping the temperature down and the smoke controlled you have got yourself a safe and tasty grilling environment.

The clear winner is gas grilling after looking at these checkpoints. The next time you are preparing for a barbecue, say goodbye to the charcoal and hello to the gas grill.

Just like a gas grill can limit your exposure to harmful PAHs, our stylish magnetic therapy bracelets can also limit your exposure to the harmful effects of positive ions, like those emitted in UV rays from the sun.
