Употребление жареного картофеля может привести к преждевременной смерти. Об этом сообщает группа ученых из США, Италии, Испании и Великобритании.
К подобным выводам исследователи пришли, наблюдая за 4400 добровольцами в течение восьми лет. За соответствующий период была зафиксирована смерть 236 пациентов.
Особое внимание ученые уделили пищевым привычкам испытуемых и выяснили, что употребление минимум двух порций жареной картошки в неделю удваивает риск преждевременной смерти.
Отмечается, что вареный или печеный картофель подобной угрозы не представляет.
Напомним, что ранее исследования показали, что картофель фри полезнее вареного.
