A peer-reviewed study of acrylamide levels in these foods suggests that it is present in dangerous levels. Acrylamide is a know carcinogen and neurotoxin that is formed when foods are baked or fried at high temperatures. The tests conducted by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) on some popular brands of french fries and chips found that the acrylamide in fries was at least 300 times the amount allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency(ERA) in a glass of water.
In addition, this food contained trans fats (artery-clogging fat that's been linked to raising bad cholesterol and lowering the good kind) that increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke and cancer.
