Compound in chips not linked to cancer?

null Dutch researchers found /*acrylamide*/ is not associated with an increased risk of lung cancer in men.

Animal studies on acrylamide had raised fears that the compound that develops in cooked foods might be a carcinogen.

Male participants in a large study at /*Maastricht University*/ in the Netherlands showed no link between lung cancer and consumption of foods high in acrylamide.

Interestingly, female participants in the study seemed to have a lower risk of lung cancer if they consumed foods with more of the compound.

Researchers released their results online in the /*Journal of the National Cancer Institute*/.
