A new study reveals the effect of fried potatoes on people.
The researchers tested 4,400 people that were from 45 to 79 years oldold by letting them eat French fries, potato chips, and hash browns for 2 or more times on a weekly basis over the course of 8 years.
Apparently, it shows that these people actually have escalated their risk of early death.
But another research reveal that it is not the potatoes that could cause premature death but another ingredient that is usually evident in various fried potato dishes.
It appears that the cooking oil has rich content of trans-fat, which boosts the levels of bad cholesterol i.e. LDL. And that can result in heart disease.
Nicola Veronese has hope that the study will serve as a warning to people that consume fried potatoes on a daily basis. Also that these people should lower their intake when it comes to fried potatoes and potato chips.
However, this scientist also noted that other crucial factors might increase the risk of early death with people that often consume fried potatoes.
The other crucial factors are those like high salt intake, inactivity, and obesity.
