Facts about Fried Foods

5 Facts about Fried Foods

  Fried food is hard to avoid – but you can do it, and there are plenty of reasons why you should. Among the most important is this: Fried food clogs the arteries leading to an increased risk of heart attacks, strokes and kidney failure.  
  It’s not just the fat in fried foods that’s harming you. When cooking oil is heated to frying temperatures, it forms cancer-causing chemicals that are released into your food.

In addition to all that extra fat and chemicals, eating fried food increases your risk of breast, lung, pancreatic and head and neck cancers. New scientific research shows that eating fried food also increases the risk of prostate cancer in men.

   And not the health-exercise kind? Eating fried food can increase the acid production in your stomach causing acid reflux – chronic heartburn.

Fried food is a huge source of saturated fats, which are awful for you, and trans fats, which are dangerous, because they raise bad cholesterol (LDL) and actually lower your  good cholesterol (HDL).
