After reading the article “Why Do Fries Taste Sooo Good?” in Reader’s Digest, I have decided to moderate my fries consumption. Especially learning that these popular snack foods have been cooked twice; I just can’t imagine the amount of oil that goes into those fries. Moreover, these fries contain acrylamide which is formed when foods are baked or fried at high temperature. According to Clark University research professor Dale Hattis, acrylamide causes thousands of cancer-related disease in America per year. That’s not all. These greasy foods also contain trans fats, a kind of fat which is responsible for clogging the artery. I don’t think I can completely give up on fries, so I’ll just eat these in moderation.
