It is often found in French fries, cereals, crackers and many other food products. According to a recent report on the FDA website, stuides have found that high levels of acrylamide can increase the risk of cancer in animals – and many experts believe the risk likely translates to humans as well.

The latest study, published in the British Medical Journal, found no association between the frequency of fried food consumption in Spain - where olive and sunflower oils are mostly used - and the incidence of serious heart disease.

The chemicals seem to be formed by exposing high-carbohydrate foods to high temperatures in...
