Burnt meat carcinogenic, what about plant matter?

It's my understanding that heavily cooked/charred meat has some health detriments (debatable). I was wondering if chatred plant products had any I'll effects.

Roasted some sweet potatoes tonight and they were blackened pretty good. They had that bitter charred taste but the middle of each piece had some unscathed flesh do I ate them anyway. 

Just wondering if anyone knew of any literature or knowledge on the possible health complications eating burnt plant matter.

Thanks.

Of course it is.  Potatoes fried in high temperature (i.e. French Fries) create acrylamide, a carcinogen.  Also sugars react with proteins creating AGE's.
