We know that potato chips are very tasty and cheap, but this little pleasure it’s not worth it. They are high in fat and calories that are a no-no when we are speaking of weight gain. Also, you may want to know that potato chips are fried in high temperatures and this causes them to make a material called acrylamide, which is a known carcinogen.
“A study done in the New England Journal of medicine found that eating just 1 once of potato chips per day caused an average 2-pound weight gain in one year. Besides being full of trans-fats which can cause high cholesterol in most people, they have excessive sodium levels which, for many people, cause high blood pressure.”
