Is cooked food dangerous?
According to a recent article in the UK publication, The Guardian,
research shows that there is a direct link between acrylamide and ovarian cancer ….AND… Acrylamide is a chemical which is produced when food is roasted, fried, or baked.
The future may, indeed, as we all expect, hold validation for the raw food diet.
Right now, the only thing the study has shown is that crisply-cooked starchy foods is a hazard to women’s health.
The article further says that the EU now advises people to steer clear of “overcooking” of carbohydrate-rich foods.
Most breakfast cereals contain acrylaminde, as do cooked meats.
Despite the alarming news, the British Food Standards Agency states that, “It is not possible to have a healthy balanced diet that avoids acrylamide.”
