Do you like eating RE-FRIED French Fries

THIS French Fries lead to THAT diseases.

A medico friend emailed me the following interesting article on French Fries (Potato chips, fried). Nesha-India, has edited and added some portions, to suit this forum's readers.

"Another Way Hospitals Can Kill You"

The Center for Science in the Public Interest tested French fries at 14 of America's leading hospitals and six top children's hospitals.

All 20 served fries with health-harming trans fats.

Among the worst offenders, based on the trans fatty content of their fries:

Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania -- 5.3 grams

University of Michigan Health System -- 4.9 grams

UCLA Medical Center -- 4.6 grams

University of Washington Medical Center -- 4.5 grams

University of California, San Francisco, Medical Center and Children's National Medical Center -- 4.1 grams

What's more, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) serves trans-fat-laden French fries in its cafeteria, despite that agency's own recommended dietary guidelines. Their French fries, in fact, contained more trans fats than any of the hospitals.

The report is having some effect; the University of Michigan Health System vowed to work to remove trans fats from their menus, and the USDA will begin serving fries cooked in trans-fat-free canola oil.

FRENCH FRIES (potato chips / fingers), one of the worst fast foods, are not only laced with trans fats, but acrylamide, produced when starchy foods are cooked at high temperatures. Eating French fries with soft drinks, doughnuts ... further complicates the G.I.Tract system.

Eating your favourite French Fries, (sometimes becomes addictive) could lead to the following diseases / disorders.


1. Increase in weight, leading to chronic obesity
2. Increases in the risk of Heart diseases
3. Increases Cholesterol
4. Increase in risk of Diabetes, G.I. Cancer and Chronic fatigue
5. Crohn's, IBS and other digestive disorders
6. Susceptible to various other diseases
7. Susceptible to Skin disorders like Acne, Pimples, Wrinkling, Eczema
8. Leads to chronic physical and mental weakness & fatigue
9. Literally contains no calcium, vitamins, minerals or any good fatty acids
10. Literally fibre-less food, hence leads to constipation.

Remain Healthy & Happy ....... Nesha-India
