The FDA is taking a stand on french fries, warning they could contain acrylamide, a potentially lethal cancer causing carcinogen and nuerotoxin that was first discovered in many popular starchy foods back in 2002.

Sadly, the more crispy and brown (and presumably delicious) the fries are, the more likely you will find this substance.

Despite the fact that studies have shown a direct cancer link in animals to the consumption of acrylamide, it pervades the average Western diet. Apart from french fries, you can find the chemical in lots of foods cooked at high temperatures, including potato chips, cookies, cereal, toast, and even coffee.
