French Fries/Cancer link

Rumor has it that our favorite French fries can cause breast cancer. But don't be sad if you're a lover of French fries. While it is true that acrylamide [a chemical formed during baking and frying] that is considered a potential carcinogen, new research shows that there is not link between foods with acrylamide and breast cancer risk. Based on their study, the amounts of acrylamide you consume with french fries is far too low than the amount that causes cancer.

So if you love eating fries, go ahead and have some, it's not as bad as you think. But keep in mind that fries are also packed with calories, so eat in moderation. :D

Every week there's something else on the news that causes cancer. It seems that eating in moderation and exercising regularly is the key to staying healthy. I better get on it then.
