Fries factor in breast cancer

Researchers are encouraging improved eating habits for our children by targeting chips as increasing a child's risk of future breast cancer. Diet has been shown in previous studies to not only increase people's waistlines, but also boost their risk of developing cancer. The potatoes themselves were not found to have cancer forming properties, rather the oils that were used for deep frying were high in saturated fats and trans-fatty acids induced cancer in later life. The study indicated that the type of diet that a child is exposed to can have some bearing on their health in later years, which is the responsibility of the parent to govern.
