Favorite Wellness Tip: Avoid using metal wire bristle brushes to clean your grill. The brush’s wire bristles can fall off and end up on the grill’s cooking surface. If these eventually stick to the food you’re cooking, the sharp bristles can get stuck in the base of tongue, stomach or intestines, and may require surgical removal.
