7. French Fries
These little fried sticks of potato are salty, delicious, and satisfying.
However, by and large, most cheap french fries are made with hydrogenated vegetable oil and topped with a mountain of sodium.
The trans fats and salt (as discussed previously) can increase your risk of high blood pressure, obesity, and other numerous diseases.
In addition to this, french fries commonly contain a chemical known as acrylamide. Any food that’s fried at high temperatures has a chance of containing this.
Acrylamide is also found in cigarette smoke and even building insulation.
It gets even worse: this compound has been linked to a increased risk of cancer.
