The Joy of Fry Ups
Wonderful news everyone!
The British Medical Journal has decreed that fry ups are no longer bad for you.
It appears that the health issue (if there really is one) lies not with the constituents of fry ups, but the oil in which they are fried.
A study published in the BMJ found no association between the frequency of fried food consumption in Spain - where olive and sunflower oils are mostly used - and the incidence of serious heart disease.
Needless to say the British Heart Foundation had a mild seizure over this, and has warned us not to reach for the frying pans "yet".
Well they would say that wouldn't they?
Professor Michael Leitzmann of the University of Regensburg in Germany said
"Taken together, the myth that frying food is generally bad for the heart is not supported by available evidence."
As I have stated many times before on this site, the body is a like a car engine it needs oil in it in order to ensure that the blood flows smoothly through the veins;)
As ever with food and drink, so long as you eat and drink a variety of foods/drinks then a blow out every once in while will not do you any harm. It is the constant haranguing by Nanny and the "health" industry that raises the blood pressure and stress levels, not the occasional fry up!
