GOLDEN. Warm. Crunchy, yet soft … many find french fries the ultimate irresistible temptation. But now we know they double your chances of death.
They’re everywhere. It’s hardly possible to eat out and not find a serve on your plate. They probably even infest your freezer.
We’ve long known their greasy goodness is too good to be true. Cholesterol. Weight gain. Any number of fatty fallouts apply.
But denial is a beautiful — crispy — place to be.
Now though, an eight-year study has found those who regularly eat french fries have double the chance of death than those who don’t.
On average, we each eat roughly about 14kg of hot fried potato chips every year. And that’s a problem.
Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that those who eat fried potato two or more times each week have double the chance of dying when compared to those who eat none.
