Swedes Say Bread and Fries May Cause Cancer


Swedish researchers have found that certain foods heavy in carbohydrates contain a compound called acrylamide which US researchers have confirmed in the past as a carcinogen.

Lab animals have developed tumors when exposed to acrylamide. Acrylamide seems to pop up in food when bread is baked or fries are fried in oil. Researchers found it when they heated rice, cereals and potatoes.

The scary thing is that found unsafe levels of acrylamide in fries fast food chains sell and potato chips. The US Food and Drug Administration is skeptical and believes the Swedish study need more scrutiny before they make any changes.

Someone definitely needs to look into this more in the US. Those are about the most common food eaten here, besides (red) meat, and if true, that would explain why cancer is so common here.

  Juanito, you have a point.  
Everything causes cancer now. But I think everything caused cancer 100 years ago, too. Just now we are living longer, and have the technology to know what cancer is. I bet the dinosaurs *really* died of massave cancer outbreaks.... can cancer outbreak? Either way, thats my new theory.

  walking on grass does cause cancer...  
if the right chemicals were sprayed on it. I thought it was pretty much common knowledge that the dinos died because of dust clouds and destruction caused by meteors hitting earth, and the climate changed killing them. But maybe cancer was an alien virus in the meteors that spread to the dinos and then to other species until it got to us...or our bread.
