Core Tip: It has been long known French Fries are not great for your health, but now a study has linked eating fried potatoes at least twice a week leads to increased health risks.
It has been long known French Fries are not great for your health, but now a study has linked eating fried potatoes at least twice a week leads to increased health risks. The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, looked at potato consumption in 4,400 people between ages 45 and 79 over the course of 8 years. By the end of the study, 236 people had died.
 
After adjusting for several factors, eating potatoes overall did not increase a person’s health risks. But when researchers looked more closely at the types of potatoes people were eating, they found that eating fried potatoes, including French Fries, fried potatoes and hash browns at least twice a week more than doubled the risk of death.
 
Eating unfried potatoes, such as potato salad and boiled, baked and mashed potatoes, was not linked to increased health risks.
 
According to livetradingnews.com, unfried white potatoes are a relatively healthy food because they contain a good amount of fibre, vitamins and micronutrients, the authors write, which “could have counterbalanced the detrimental effects of their high glycemic index.” Fried potatoes, however, typically contain lots of fat and added salt.
