Never stored potatoes you bought in fridge, you can get cancer


Illustration Illustration - There are some foods that can be dangerous to consume after being stored in the refrigerator. One of them is potatoes. According to experts, there are a number of reasons why potatoes can not be stored in the refrigerator. First, the cold temperature in the refrigerator can damage potatoes, because starch in potatoes can turn into sugar. This change not only makes the potato taste sweeter, but also affects the texture and makes it harder.

Second, when the starch has turned into sugar, it can cause dangerous chemical reactions when cooked. When potatoes are fried at a temperature of 250 degrees Fahrenheit, sugar is mixed with asparagine mino acid to produce a chemical called acrylamide. Acrylamide is a carcinogen that can cause cancer risk, as the National Cancer Institute says. Acrylamide is usually used in the production of plastic, paper and dyes.

This has been proven by a study by The National ??Toxicology Program using mice as their object. Cigarette smoke is a major source of acrylamide exposure, but some people can swallow it through food sources, including potato chips, french fries, biscuit bread, cakes, cereals, canned black olives, prune juice, and coffee.
