For the study, a team of researchers followed the eating habits of 4,440 people aged between 45 and 79 for eight years. They analyzed the amount of potato they ate by asking to fill out a questionnaire. The scientists did not find a direct link between people who consumed potatoes cooked in other ways and death, but they found a line between frequent consumption of fried potatoes and raised the risk of death.

Registered dietitian Jessica Cording says: “Fried potatoes are a food that provides a lot of calories, sodium, and sometimes trans fat, but contributes minimal nutrition.”
