Stroke, dementia and more: why french fries are dangerous

(ORDO NEWS) — Potatoes do not pose any threat to health at all, but if they are cooked in a huge amount of oil, then in this case the dish will be incredibly harmful.

Scientists some time ago conducted a study that showed that regular consumption of french fries can cause irreparable harm to health and cause premature death.

Fats are several times longer digested by the body than, for example, proteins or carbohydrates. That is why it comes as no surprise that very fatty French fries will be present in the human stomach for much longer than healthy foods.

In this regard, lovers of such junk food are more likely to experience pain in the abdomen, suffer from nausea or bloating, diarrhea.

Deep-fried potatoes contain enough trans fats that can lead to a significant increase in blood cholesterol levels. As a result, the risk of developing pathologies of the cardiovascular system begins to increase. A person can die from a stroke or a heart attack.

In addition, experts have found that if there is a high level of trans fats in the blood, this increases by almost 75% the risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in old age.

Fatty food is generally dangerous for the whole body. For example, it negatively affects the gut microbiome.

Harmful microorganisms begin to multiply rapidly, while useful ones gradually die and their number is significantly reduced. As a result, the body becomes weaker and worse tolerates a variety of diseases.

Fried food contains a lot of calories and a minimal amount of nutrients. If you use it too often, then in this case you can very quickly gain extra pounds. Some experts believe that fried foods are directly related to obesity.
