    The boiled food is better than fried, because all the useful ingredients in any food are present within the cell which compose the tissue of the food, so when you boil the food the cell of course explode due to high pressure, and all the useful ingredients fall into the water, so when you eat the soup of the boiled food you have all the useful metals, salts and proteins.

    In case of   fried food after the cell explode due to high pressure in oil, all the useful ingredients fall into the oil, and of course you never drink the oil as you drink the soup, another matter in case of fried food is that however you try to get rid of most of the oil from this food, you must eat some of the oil with the food, which increase the quantity of the triglyceride in your blood, and this triglyceride increase the viscosity of the blood and of course you can imagine what happen next, that it can block the arteries and veins within your circulatory system.

    And the thing that is more useful that the boiled food is any food without any process that happen on it, like the dish of the salad.

      Think about deterioration of nutrients.

    Even if a fat is a so-called healthy fat, it's still a fat. The amount of fat that a person should consume each day is relatively low, and is generally exceeded when a food is fried.

    When it comes to preparing vegetables, raw is best, followed by steamed. The nutrients are retained in the food, rather than being diluted by boiling.

      I appriciate your reply. However, if you don't mind I would like you to consider the

      following concept as well:
                       *The cooking medium for fried food is some edible oil having very high boiling

      point(about 300 to 400 degree celsius)
