Fried chicken, fish could lead to early death

Fried chicken, fish could lead to early death”

Moreover, one or more servings of fried fish/shellfish per day were associated with a 7 percent higher risk of death from any cause, while a 13 percent higher risk of heart-related death than those with no fried food.

One or more servings of fried fish or shellfish a day was linked to a 7% higher risk of death from any cause and a 13% higher risk of heart-related death. However, previous research has shown links between higher consumption of fried foods and an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

However, CNN noted that the study has its limitations after interviewing a number of experts on the matter.

Researchers looked at almost 107,000 postmenopausal women who tracked their diets in the 1990s for a nationwide study that followed them until 2017.

While this shouldn't surprise anyone, according to the lead author of the study, Wei Bao, an assistant professor of epidemiology at the University of Iowa, this study appears to be the very first time anyone actually dug into the data and calculated a figure to go along with the known link between fried food consumption and an early death. "But it is probably a good idea at least to reduce portion size and frequency of consumption of fried food".

The authors, led by a team from the University of Iowa, concluded: 'Frequent consumption of fried foods, especially fried chicken and fried fish/shellfish, was associated with a higher risk of all cause and cardiovascular mortality in women in the United States'.

The observational study is the first of its kind in the United States that takes a look at the relationship between fried food consumption and mortality, Bao added.

Researchers have found that during this time, 31,588 deaths occurred - including 8,358 cancer deaths, 9,320 heart-related deaths, and 13,880 deaths from other causes.

But the researchers found no evidence that fried food increased the risk of cancer. This may be because more Spanish people prepare their food at home, rather than eating it in restaurants, and choose healthier frying oils, such as olive oil, Bao says. They were also more likely to smoke, exercise less, and have a worse diet in general. But an observational study can a never prove cause and effect, and the authors note that it's impossible to rule out the impact of other factors that affect health.

Other limitations of the study are that other factors could play a role in the premature deaths. Women who ate fried food regularly had a much larger daily calorie intake than those who didn't eat fried food.

The presence of "unidentified confounders is still possible", so no firm conclusions can be drawn about cause, they said.

"Reducing the consumption of fried foods, especially fried chicken and fried fish/shellfish, could have a clinically meaningful effect across the public health spectrum".
