Acrylimide.....naturally occuring chemicals in the veggies. Been around since the caveman discovered fire. Causes cancer in labratory rats in higher doses.

Amounts vary widly. French fries and potato chips have the most. Crackers have it in them. Even baby food has some in it.

But, there is little cause for concern. Just don't super size I guess.

You had me scared! I figured I was a goner! I'm glad it's nothing to worry about. I'd hate to give up those Super sized meals. At least the report wasn't on sugar!
