Soon there won't be much left for people to eat without worrying about how much it could harm our well-being.
For decades, scientist have been tirelessly conducting studies to determine the impact our diets have on our overall health and life expectancy. While there have been links between manufactured foods and premature death, nothing has prepared us for the results of the latest food study.
Dr. Nicola Veronese, a scientist at the National Research Council in Padova, Italy, led a study that resulted in some surprising revelations about the danger of consuming fried potatoes.
You're probably thinking that this is a no-brainer considering fried foods have always been considered bad for health but there has only ever been limited research on specific food groups like potatoes.
Veronese and her team studied a cohort of 4,440 aged between 45 and 79 over a period of 8 years. They closely observed the participant's consumption of fried potatoes and came to the conclusion that those who ate french fries and other fried potato foods were two or three times more likely to double their risk of early death. Scary!
