Browned Toast, Crips & Potatoes Are ‘Potential Cancer Risk’, Say Food Scientists

That was the headline in the news a couple of weeks ago!
It was from the bbc website (link below)
Here is an extract from it:
‘Bread, chips and potatoes should be cooked to a golden yellow colour, rather than brown, to reduce our intake of a chemical which could cause cancer, government food scientists are warning.
Acrylamide is produced when starchy foods are roasted, fried or grilled for too long at high temperatures.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) recommends carefully following cooking instructions and avoiding browning.
However, Cancer Research UK said the link was not proven in humans.
The FSA also says potatoes and parsnips should not be kept in the fridge.
This is because sugar levels rise in the vegetables at low temperatures, potentially increasing the amount of acrylamide produced during cooking.
Acrylamide is present in many different types of food and is a natural by-product of the cooking process.
The highest levels of the substance are found in foods with high starch content which have been cooked above 120C, such as crisps, bread, breakfast cereals, biscuits, crackers, cakes and coffee, as a result of the roasted beans.’
Okay so every now and then we get something in the news with a big bold headline but once you read it then it’s not so clear.
This is another one, it says ‘was not proven in humans’ but it’s scary nonetheless.
What I notice with this is (besides potatoes and parnsips) the foods this Acrylamide is being found on:
  • Bread
  • Crisps
  • Biscuits
  • Crackers
  • Cakes
  • Cereal
All  highly processed foods made by US
We are playing with fire through these unnatural food manufacturing that we are doing to create these nutritionally void unnatural quick, cheap foods! It’s not right.
Whether it increases our cancer risk or not is it worth the risk? If I was  you then the easiest way to not take a chance is to simply CUT OUT PROCESSED FOODS
Don’t let that crap in your body.
Cut it out = reduce your risk
