These byproducts "tend to end up on other tissues in the body, causing long-term damage," Chapman-Novakofski said.

The study found a stronger link to heart disease from the by-products in cooking than the harmful saturated fat in food.

Diabetes sufferers at risk of heart disease are warned to avoid cooking methods that leave a crust on meat.

The study has been published in the International Journal of Food Sciences and Nutrition.
