Harvard scientists decided to determine how many French fries you can eat without fear for your health. To do this, they conducted a study with a group of volunteers who actively engaged in sports, adhered to a balanced diet and followed the correct sleep regime.
The results of the experiment will unpleasantly surprise all fast food lovers… It turns out that even with this lifestyle, eating French fries is highly discouraged.
Well, who doesn't love golden and crispy French fries? This is perhaps the most popular snack that goes well not only with fast food, but also with meat and other hot dishes. But it's no secret that you shouldn't "lean" on this snack, because potato slices literally float in oil to get into our plates so delicious.
But is it really impossible to pamper yourself at least occasionally? This is what scientists from Harvard University found out.
Studies have shown that the use of deep-fried potatoes has a negative effect on human health. First of all, people who love this delicacy may have heart problems. In addition, cases of diabetes mellitus and obesity are not uncommon.
According to the research results, the "safe portion" is six (!!!) potato straws per week (!!!). And this is provided that a person leads an active lifestyle, eats right and has no problems with sleep. Six straws! For a whole week…
Earlier, similar observations were made by Italian scientists who managed to find out that people who do not eat French fries at all lived half a year longer than those who occasionally indulged themselves.
