Frozen Fries are Cancer Causing

Researchers are warning that frozen french fries, those tasty delectables you get at junk food restaurants that are magically soft on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside, contribute to the formation of cancer due to high levels of carcinogenic chemicals.

The process that factories use of partly cooking fries so they remain raw on the inside produces high amounts of acrylamide, a cancer causing agent.

Acrylamide is actually a natural byproduct of many types of cooked foods, especially potatoes.  The problem is that these types of fries have dangerously high levels due to the levels of fructose and the preparation methods at factories.

To be blunt, you didn’t really think french fries were anything but destructive to you right?

Here’s another reason to order broccoli instead.
