Eating French fries regularly can kill
World | society | 15:20, 15 June 2017 | 1609

AKIPRESS.COM - An eight-year study on the regular consumption of French fry has come out with this devastating result that too much of the fried potato snack can lead to a speedy death, reports Sputnik news agency.

Acrylamide forms in starchy foods fried at high temperatures, and is termed a carcinogen by US government health agencies. The dangerous chemical compound has been shown to cause tumors in adrenal glands, the thyroid and the lungs.

Making the ominous observation that the risk of death from eating too many french fries is double than those who do not consume the delicious yet greasy food, the new study has called on potato lovers to prepare their favorite tuber another way, perhaps by steaming or boiling.

Those who regularly eat the delicious treat twice or more in a week, in comparison to those who do not eat french fries at all, have twice the chance of suffering death by heart attack due to a circulatory system overloaded with cholesterol and other toxins, says the Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The study included 4,440 participants between the ages of 45 and 79, who were examined over a period of eight years; 236 of those participants died.

The research indicated that those who died were the ones who ate the most fried potatoes, and not just french fries either, as any form of potato seared in boiling hot oil - including hash browns and tater tots - was found to be the main reason for early death.
