Eating boiled potatoes doubles your risk of early death, investigate says

Apparently, genocide by French fry could occur to we if you’re not careful.


People who eat boiled potatoes some-more than twice a week double their risk of an early genocide when compared with people who equivocate this crunchy treat, according to a recent investigate published in a American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Not surprisingly, National Potato Council CEO John Keeling strike back, telling CNN the “study isn’t applicable to a ubiquitous population” given it was collected for an osteoarthritis investigate and usually surveyed people with arthritis.

Keeling went so distant as to contend “it is really most a widen to code boiled potatoes, or any other form of potato, as unhealthy.”
