Why eating fries often is a bad idea
Eating fries at least twice a week could increase your risk of premature death, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The study looked at the potato consumption habits of 4,000 people between 45 and 79. By the end of the eight-year study, 236 participants had died. It found that those who consumed fried potatoes two to three times a week or more “were at an increased risk of mortality.”
It added that eating unfried potatoes was not associated with a higher mortality risk.The authors emphasize more studies with a larger number of participants should be conducted "to confirm if overall potato consumption is associated with higher mortality risk."
