Fried Foods Trigger Cancer

At the bottom of this site has listed more than two years, Prof. analysis. Dr. dr. Li Peiwen (a medical doctor and expert oncologists traditional medicine of China) about why the cancer incidence in Indonesia more than China. Because the Indonesian people loved to eat fried foods, he said. From crackers, fried plantain, fried cassava, fried chicken, fried potatoes, fried rice. just gone days without eating fried food.
Hmm ... why fried food can lead to cancer?

Tareke Eden et al of the University of Stockholm, Sweden, in 2002 announced the results of research on acrylamide, a carcinogen formed in food research heated. He think, carbohydrate-rich foods such as potatoes, cassava, yams, bananas, rice, etc. will decompose if it is fried, then react with amino acids to produce carcinogenic compounds (cancer triggers) called acrylamide. Similarly baked goods. The food was raw, boiled, or steamed not experience such reactions, so that does not produce acrylamide. If anything, levels are very small.

Research on mice shows that the acrylamide cause tumors, DNA damage, nerve damage, interfere with fertility rates, and result in miscarriage. A plate of fried potatoes are cooked at a temperature of 220 C acrylamide containing approximately 2500 micrograms. In mice, this number had caused the mutation. What if every day we eat fries, ote-ote, crackers, fried bananas, fried cassava, fried tempe, fried-fried or another?
Really? No wonder the doctors always advise us to avoid fried. So, what means we should never eat fried foods? Can it, if not too much and know tricks of foods. Because of oil however, is also needed in our body's metabolism, in the amount of not more than 5-10 ml / day (1-2 tablespoons)
