Potato Chips


Potato chips can help beat cancers

The mouth-watering chips have long been labelled as a “junk food”. Yet, experts have claimed that gorging on a deepfried potato diet can help people in beating certain cancers.

According to them, chips are rich in vitamin C, which tackles dangerous free radicals associated with cancer growth, and those suffering with the disease can even shrink the size of their tumours by eating wafers, the Daily Star reported.

“Chips give vitamin C, which is an important nutrient believed to help protect against certain types of cancer. People who eat food rich in vitamin C are much less likely to suffer from cancer of the oesophagus, cancer of the stomach and breast cancer.

“Free radicals are very unstable molecules which can cause damage within the body and are linked to several different types of cancer. Chips contribute vitamin C, which is a powerful anti-oxidant that neutralises the free radicals and stops them from damaging us,” said nutritionist Fiona Hunter. In fact, a 175 gm portion of chips contains three times more vitamin C than an apple and nine times more than a slice of pizza, according to the researchers. PTI
