Are Carbohydrates Causing Cancer?

Check out the video I stumbled upon. This is really eye opening.

Welcome to Tim Van Orden’s Running Raw Project. In this episode: While speaking in Fredericksburg, Virginia, Tim discusses the dangerous compounds that form when carbohydrates are heated at high temperatures – mainly a substance called acrylamide.

Acrylamide is a known carcinogen – meaning that it causes cancer. It is formed when the amino acid arginine bonds with glucose. This occurs when carbohydrates are heated at high temperatures, but not when they are boiled or steamed.

Tim cites a list that appears on the FDA website which states the levels of acrylamide in common baked goods and other staple foods.

Here is a link to the FDA’s page about acrylamide – FDA Acrylamide Questions and Answers
