I am convinced...I do not know what was in their fries, but knew that it couldn't be good. I am not a big fan of McDonald's food anyway. The only thing I really like is their sweet tea. Thanks for sharing! I will definatley share this with others.

"A chemical substance, acryl amide, is produced when starch rich foods are fried at high temperatures. Health conscious people are aware that this is carcinogenic in nature"

Not really.

In March, 2003, the International Journal of Cancer reported on a study conducted between 1991–2000 in Italy and Switzerland that analyzed the risk of cancer of the oral cavity and pharynx, esophagus, larynx, large bowel, breast and ovaries. It found “reassuring evidence for the lack of an important association between consumption of fried/baked potatoes and cancer risk.”

More recently, in January, 2008, one of the HEATOX members published a study, stating “So far, epidemiological studies have not shown any association between human cancer risk and dietary exposure to acrylamide. The purpose of this study was to conduct a nested case control study within a prospective cohort study on the association between breast cancer and exposure to acrylamide using biomarkers.” The study found that “[a]fter adjustment for smoking behavior... a positive association was seen between acrylamide-hemoglobin levels and estrogen receptor positive breast cancer... A weak association between glycidamide hemoglobin levels and incidence of estrogen receptor positive breast cancer was also found, this association, however, entirely disappeared when acrylamide and glycidamide hemoglobin levels were mutually adjusted.”
