Harvard University spokesman Eric Rimm has determined a healthy serving of fries through research. According to the expert, the portion of the product fried in oil should be reduced six to seven times. French fries gained wide popularity in the 19th century in the United States, after which they spread throughout the world.
However, for the first time this delicacy appeared in Belgium and France at the end of the 17th century. In modern establishments, this dish contains about 40-45 slices of potatoes, but large portions can be tripled at once. Doctors note that people who consume this dish several times a week increase the likelihood of cardiovascular disease and obesity. Scientist Eric Rimm found out which portion of French fries would have the least negative effect on the body. It turned out that a serving of french fries, which will not fatally affect the body, is six straws, but at the same time a person must play sports and adhere to a healthy diet. In his study, Rimm referred to the scientific work of Italian scientists who had previously figured out the benefits of avoiding French fries. It turned out that people who do not eat this dish at all live on average six months longer than others.
