Not short term: Burning food carries carcinogens. Carcinogens are cancer producing entities. Over time eating alot of grilled, burned meat and other foods is not healthy. When grilling outside and you eat overcooked meat you can take a Vitamin C pill. It will help neutralize the carcinogens from the burned food. Popcorn is a risk for diverticulitis. Choose better choices of snacks to stay healthy.
