 French Fries-Why They Could be a Death Warrant

An ingredient acrylamide, found in many fried foods, could be harmful for health, according to the FDA.

Acrylamide forms in many plant-based foods while they are cooked at high-temperatures, like frying or baking; it's often found in French fries, cereals, crackers and many other food products, Fox News reported.


According to a recent report on the FDA website, studies have found that high levels of acrylamide could raise cancer risk among animals - and many experts believe that the risk could translate to humans as well.

The chemical was first discovered in 2002. According to the FDA, acrylamide forms from sugars and an amino acid that are naturally found in food.
