French fries, other fast foods can destroy health

French fries, other fast foods can destroy health
Junk foods are called 'junk' for a reason. They are basically food items that contain no nutrition and become a source of empty calories that may lead to unnecessary weight gain which increases the risk of other lifestyle diseases like hypertension, high cholesterol, heart problems and diabetes.

It may be comforting to indulge in cheesy, fatty or sugary foods, once in a while, but given the surge of fast food chains, the so- called 'junk diet' is becoming a part of daily lifestyle.

There has been a lot of evidence to show that junk food can mess with body and brain and the latest study serves as a warning sign. A team of researchers found that regular consumption of fried potatoes (most commonly enjoyed as French fries) is linked to an increased risk of death. The health risk has been associated with the way potatoes are cooked and consumed and not potatoes in general indicating the effects of fried and fatty foods, according to a global media report.
