An analysis found that one medium-sized serving of french fries is enough to increase the risk of heart disease
The analysis reviewed 17 studies investigating the relationship between fried food and heart health.
Eating 4 ounces, of fried food each week is associated with a 3% increased risk of heart attack and stroke.
It also caused a 2% increase in the risk of heart disease and a 12% increase in the risk of heart failure.
People who ate the most fried food per week had a 37% higher risk of heart failure compared to those who ate the least.
Researchers say more work will be needed in order to establish a direct link between fried foods and cardiovascular disease.
While this study determined a link between cardiovascular disease and fried foods, these findings are not able to establish a direct link, Megan Meyer, PhD, Director Of Science Communications At The International Food Information Council.
The findings were published in the journal, Heart in January.
