* FOOD ALERT-Stay Away From Burnt Toast *
Recent studies by food scientists in Great Britain advise not to eat burnt toast! According to the Food Standards Agency, starchy foods should never turn more than golden brown in coloring. These foods run the risk of producing a dangerous amount of acrylamide, which has shown to cause cancer in animals. Here’s the catch, no studies have proven this is true in humans. While acrylamide may pose no harm, scientists advise better safe than sorry. To lean more about acrylamide, as well as how to prevent the chemical production, visit the BBC News website.
