Suya And Reasons You Should Stop Eating It by danduchi(m): 6:46am On Jun 10, 2015
Suya as it is being made and sold in many places should not be eaten because of the risks and dangers associated. I will
try as much as possible to explain this in very simple and clear terms. This is to enable even a layman read and understand the message of this post. All I just want you to know are the risks and dangers associated with eating just any Suya.
If you are reading this, you probably know what Suya is. But
by way of definition, Suya is a spicy skewered meat which is
a popular food item in various parts of Nigeria and is
enjoyed as a delicacy in many parts of West Africa. It is
traditionally prepared by the Hausa people of northern
Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, and some parts of Sudan.
Forget the dirty environment and poor or zero hygiene
conditions in which Suya is made and handled in many
places in Nigeria, there are other dangers that are inherent
in the consumption of Suya – those that many would never
know unless they are Food professional or have come
across an article like this that explains it.
Suya and Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs)
You know when they say Cigarette kills? It is majorly due to
the PAHs they contain. Many Suya sellers make their Suya by
burning all sort of woods and charcoal to make their fire.
Some even throw in such things as plastics to make their
ember burn brighter in order to cook the Suya meat. Many
of these materials burning under the meat contain these
Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons — and do you know what
these PAHs do in the body after enough consumption or
exposure?
1. Some PAHs are chemical carcinogens (cancer-causing
compounds) while seven PAH compounds have also been
classified as probable human carcinogens.
2. Some PAH compounds are mutagens. Mutagen is a
physical or chemical agent that changes the genetic
material (DNA).
3. According to a finding, reported in an article on
health.usnews.com, high prenatal exposure to PAH is
associated with lower IQ and childhood asthma.

Re: Suya And Reasons You Should Stop Eating It by here: 7:01am On Jun 10, 2015
I was educating an audience once on my fears for this and no one listened because I was not an authority in the field and lacked facts,am happy someone has.Yet we fail to realise this is a danger and worse still our medical system here is so low cancer is still to us like malaria is to the white man (not fully understood).
My basis for feeling this was wrong is based on the Japanese instance of smoked fish which increased the cancer rate such that that area has the highest rate but someone argued that smoked food is more healthy than the cooked yet they do not get the point "the wood and smoke".
I am also looking at the home warming system in most developed countries as a factor in the cancer rates from the fire system installed in houses but until that is also proven.
