Genotoxicity of acrylamide

Be extra careful when your chips are down.


And now scientists have discovered the ’genotoxicity’ of acrylamide. The toxin found in crisps, chips, biscuits, breakfast cereals and crispbreads, indeed many potato and other foods baked at high temperatures, induces gene mutation, structural chromosomal aberrations, sister chromatid exchange and mitotic disturbances in mammalian cells in vitro and it induces structural chromosomal aberrations in vivo in both somatic and germ-line cells.

In case you didn’t get all that, it’s very toxic and carcinogenic. Be careful what you are giving your children and take avoiding action if you have cancer.
