Too Much Fried Chicken Can Kill You

Fried chicken, french fries, and chicken-fried steak might be delicious, but treating yourself to such fare regularly could be deadly, a new study warns.

Women who eat more than one serving a week of fried chicken or fried fish have an increased risk of heart disease and death, researchers report.

"Overall, we found that total fried food consumption is related to higher risk of all-cause death, and also death from cardiovascular disease," said senior researcher Dr. Wei Bao, assistant professor of epidemiology with the University of Iowa's College of Public Health.

The results are not surprising "given the association of fried food to weight gain and obesity, as well as elevation of cholesterol and triglycerides," said Dr. Guy Mintz, director of cardiovascular health and lipidology at Northwell Health's Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital in Manhasset, New York, who was not part of the study.

Everyone dies.

Enjoy life and eat/smoke/drink as much as you so desire.

What good is being 90 years old, never really having enjoyed ice cream, soda, or fried chicken, and unable to walk across the room or wipe your own ace. Or think clearly.
Have lots of fun. God will call you ON HIS SCHEDULE, not yours.
