Excessive Consumption Of fried Potatoes Doubles Your Risk Of Early Death - New Study




A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says people who
eat fried potatoes two or more times a week double their risk of an early death compared to
those who avoid them.

The researchers
however noted that eating potatoes that have not been fried was not linked to a similar early mortality risk.

The study tracked 4,440 people aged 45 to 79 over a period of eight years to study
osteoarthritis. This research team decided to momentarily set aside the main issue of
osteoarthritis and look at participants' consumption of potatoes.

So the researchers divided study participants into subgroups based on how frequently they
ate potatoes each week. Over the eight years,
a total of 236 of the participants died.

Analyzing the data for each group, Veronese and his team found that those who ate fried
potatoes two to three times each week doubled
their chance of dying early compared to those
who ate no fried potatoes. French fries, potato
chips, hash browns and any other preparation
requiring a fryer are all included under the umbrella of "fried potatoes".

Age or Sêx of participants did not influence the
result, but the data showed men were more likely than women and younger participants
were more likely than older participants to enjoy
the fried food.

The study was led by Dr. Nicola Veronese, lead author of the study and a scientist at the
National Research Council in Padova, Italy.
