Fried Chicken Is Killing You, According to Science

On this week's episode of "Guess what's killin ya today!" I present to you, fried chicken and fish.

A regular serving of fried chicken or fish is associated with a higher risk of death from any cause except cancer, according to a new study done in postmenopausal women in the United States.

Women who enjoyed fried chicken once or more per day had a 13 percent higher risk of death from any cause compared with women who did not eat any fried food, according to the study, published Wednesday in the medical journal BMJ.

The observational study is the first in the United States, to Bao’s knowledge, to look at the relationship between fried food consumption and mortality. However, previous research has shown links between higher consumption of fried foods and an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

A 2017 study found that people who eat fried potatoes two or more times a week double their risk of an early death compared with those who avoid them.

First they came for my fried potatoes, then my fried chicken and fish, watch next week they'll tell me that I can't have fried cake!
