Fries Heighten Cancer Risk

Very young children who eat French fries frequently have a much higher risk of breast cancer as adults. A study of American nurses found that one additional serving of fries per week at ages three to five increased breast cancer risk by 27 percent. A high-fat diet has been linked with breast cancer, which affects more than 200,000 US women a year and is expected to kill 40,000 this year. This is a little scary indeed! Fortunately, my family was not that fortunate to be able to chomp down fries at the age of three to five. Peas and carrots, anyone? :)
