    Acrylamide was known to cause cancer in lab animals when ingested at high doses. So when researchers announced a decade ago that they had also discovered it in many commonly eaten foods — including French fries, potato chips, bread and even coffee — consumers were understandably worried that their snack chips might do them in.

    Here’s a short list of some of the foods acrylamide is often found in:
    • Potatoes (especially roasted or fried potatoes)
    • Cereals
    • Coffee
    • Crackers
    • Breads (especially toasted bread)
    • Dried fruits

    the FDA released a draft of some practical strategies to help growers, manufacturers and food service operators lower the amount of acrylamide in their foods, accompanied by the aforementioned consumer update.

    1- Cut out, or at least cut back on, fried foods. This is just a good idea, anyway, but it's an especially good idea if acrylamide makes you nervous. If you want to make a big difference, have things that you boil or steam or eat raw.

    2- Don’t eat crispy or burnt french fries. The FDA says overcooked, crispy or burnt french fries are the ones most likely to have higher levels of acrylamide. Go for the golden yellow fries, and avoid the brown ones.

    3- Also, don’t eat burnt toast. Same concept here: The dark brown or black areas on a piece of toast are more likely to contain acrylamide. Toast your bread to a light brown color instead. The best rule of thumb is just don’t cook things to death.

    4- Potatoes don’t belong in the refrigerator. Keeping potatoes in the fridge can increase the amount of acrylamide produced during cooking, the FDA says. Instead, keep them stored in a dark, cool place, like a pantry.

    Just as worrying is the high glycemic value of this starch and its disproportionate use in the Western diet which contributes to many higher risk conditions (diabetes, obesity, steato hepatitis, etc.)

    Don't eat potatoes, Don't eat fried. Don't eat beans. Calorie Restricted Paleo Diet. As much as possible eat only what you grew, or know the guys who did.
    Meat, green leafy veg, and seeds (I'm allergic to all nuts) Cut out dairy (unless you have myelin issues), all cereals (wheat, rice, millet) (OK, I confess I do like my oatmeal in the morning (no milk, no sugar) just oatmeal and water. NO SUGAR. NOTHING IN A CAN, A PACKAGE, or a FROZEN BOX. Eat two meals a day. Morning and Evening. Strive for 1200 calories. Your body is an animal. Treat it like one.
