Eric Rimm, the varsity professor, in the departments of epidemiology and nutrition at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, calls potatoes "starch bombs".


Rim said that “I think it would be nice if your meal came with a side salad and six French fries,” Rimm said in the piece.”


A study was published last year which "noted that potatoes have a high glycemic index"—an issue that's been linked to an "increased risk of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease."


Those who ate fried potatoes 2-3 times per week were at a higher risk of death compared to the participants that ate un-fried potatoes.

Pakistani | 2 years ago | Reply We always criticize fast food over our desi or home cooked food, but the truth is that our desi food is way more unhealthy than fast food because of the amount of cooking oil and salt we use in it on daily basis, which causes heart attacks. The Japanese cuisine is the healthiest in the world, which is made up of raw food.
