Fried foods cause cancer!

Plus they make you fat, but you knew that already! I wonder if cartons of french fries will soon carry the surgeon general's warning on them. From the Tampa Tribune:A new Swedish study announced Wednesday claims french fries, potato chips, bread, rice and other fried or baked high-carbohydrate foods may cause cancer.

The culprit may be acrylamide, ``a probable human carcinogen'' formed when potatoes are fried and breads are baked, according to Sweden's National Food Administration, which did the preliminary research.
