A new study finds that fried rice is a health risk and that the food should be avoided at least four to six weeks before it’s available in stores.
Researchers from the University of British Columbia’s School of Public Health, in collaboration with the Centre for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), reviewed more than 700 studies of the link between eating fried food and the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes.
The findings are published in the journal BTS.
The study found that consuming fried rice for four or more days before a meal increases the risk for colorectal cancer by 24 per cent and heart disease by 33 per cent.
Colorectals are the most common cancer in the US, accounting for more than 2 million deaths a year.
It is also the leading cause of death for people over 65 in the United States.
There is also a link between high intake of fried rice and higher risk of developing diabetes.
‘Dire warning’: Dr Peter O’Donnell, who led the study, says it is ‘clearly dangerous’ to eat fried food Dr O’Donnel told BBC News: ‘I think that a lot of people who consume fried food think that it’s healthy, but there’s really no evidence for that.
‘The studies we looked at showed that for people who were eating fried foods, the risk was more than double the risk that was associated with a normal diet.
‘People who were consuming fried foods tended to be younger, healthier and to have higher levels of physical activity, so it seems that eating fried might be more harmful than we thought.’
The researchers reviewed the studies of people consuming a diet high in refined carbohydrates and fats, which is known to be linked to increased risk of coloretum.
The researchers found that people who ate the highest levels of refined carbohydrates had a greater risk of dying from colorectoral cancer.
They also found that those who consumed the most saturated fat, like butter and margarine, were more likely to develop colorecctal and endometrial cancer.
Dr O ‘Dry’ foods and the cancer risk Dr O said: ‘There are some very clear, clear risks associated with the consumption of dry foods.
‘We’re seeing some very interesting data that shows that, in fact, eating dry foods can actually have an increased risk for cancer.
‘It’s the saturated fat and sugar that cause a lot more cancer in terms of total cancer.”
The reason for this is because the cells in our body get rid of fat and sugars.
When we eat them, we don’t get any of the vitamins or minerals that they provide.
‘In fact, they get the nutrients they need to keep cells alive.’
We don’t have any evidence for a direct link between consumption of dried food and cancer, so that’s what we looked into.
‘And so, although it’s clear that the cancer risks associated directly with eating dried foods is higher, the risks associated indirectly through the consumption and storage of foods are much higher.’
The research was led by Dr O. His colleagues analysed the studies that showed an increased cancer risk after consuming fried food.
The team used data from more than 400,000 people across the United Kingdom and Australia.
The studies included people who consumed more than five servings of dried foods a week.
In the United Arab Emirates, the researchers found a 20 per cent increased risk in men who ate fried rice, compared to those who did not.
The UK study found the risk increased with the amount of sugar consumed per serving.
For example, the amount that people consumed increased by 27 per cent for each 100 grams of sugar.
Dr Peter C. O’Dorman, from the Centre For Science in Public Interest, says that there is ‘very clear, strong evidence’ that the risk from consuming fried oil is more than twice as great as from the other types of fried food The research, which was carried out by the Centre, used data on the intake of refined sugars, salt and fats from the food industry, as well as information on the consumption habits of people in the UK.
The data showed that people in both groups who ate at least one serving of dried products had a 10 per cent increase in risk of the following types of cancer: coloreclectal (21 per cent), endometrium (18 per cent) and breast cancer (17 per cent).
‘We found that the highest intake of processed refined sugars increased the risk significantly,’ Dr O added.
‘So, if you eat a lot, and then you eat refined sugars for a long time, you can increase your risk for certain cancers.’
But what we found in this study is that if you don’t eat dried foods, you are actually not getting any of these nutrients.’
The risk of pancreatic cancer and the cancers of the liver, lungs and ovaries is higher if you consume fried foods. But
