Research at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital has suggested that eating French fries during preschool years is linked to a significant increase of developing breast cancer later in life. The large study involved 2,000 nurses.


According to the researchers, they found that each additional serving of French fries per week represented a 27 percent increased risk of breast cancer. Potatoes were not the problem. The cooking method of frying French fries in saturated fats and trans fats seemed to be what created the increased breast cancer risk.

Interestingly, other foods perceived as less healthy such as hot dogs or ice cream, however, were not associated with breast cancer risk.
