I know they are fucking delicious, but look at some facts…

Acrylamide is a chemical used in making substances called acrylamide copolymers and polyacrylamide, which can be found in consumer products like food packaging, adhesives and caulking. They are also used in many industrial processes such as the production of plastics, dyes, paper, drinking water and wastewater treatment.

Acrylamide is also found in food, and can be produced when vegetables containing the amino acid, asparagine (ie potatoes) are heated to high enough temperatures.

The human body converts acrylamide into glycidamide, which can mutate and damage DNA.

The main food sources of acrylamide include french fries, coffee, bread, cookies, potato chips, crackers, cereal, canned black olives and prune juice.

In the general population, the main sources of acrylamide exposure comes from food and cigarette smoke.

The levels of acrylamide will vary depending on the manufacturer, cooking method/time, and temperature.

Methods to decrease acrylamide content: not storing potatoes in the fridge, decreasing cooking time to prevent heavy crisping/browning, blanching potatoes before frying and drying potatoes in a hot air oven after frying.

Animal studies have shown that acrylamide exposure increases the risk of cancer.

However, epidemiological (observational) studies have found no consistent evidence that dietary acrylamide exposure is associated with the risk of cancer because these types of studies are very limited in determining accurate levels of exposure.

That being said, I don’t think you need science to prove that french fries are terrible for your health. You just need to think critically and from an evolutionary standpoint.
