Harvard Professor Recommends Eating Only 6 French Fries Per Meal, Twitter Doesn't Agree

Last year, the The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a study that found that people who consumed fried potatoes more than two-tree times a week had a higher mortality risk than those who did not or consumed potatoes in a different way.

A Harvard professor got caught in a Twitterstorm after he announced that people should eat only six French fries in a meal to remain healthy. Eric Rimm at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health made the announcement, referring to French fries as 'starch bomb'. and while he advised people to stay off the deep fried delights altogether, he said that if one must have fries, they must limit their intake to 6 fries per serving.

“I think it would be nice if your meal came with a side salad and six French fries.” Rimm told New York Times. And while there is nothing inaccurate about Rimm's words - deep fried potatoes have almost no nutritive value and only cause health problems - French fry lovers have been up in arms since the announcement.

Many took to social media to express their disappointment over Rimm's words and also shared photos of French fries to drive home the point.





































This is not the first time that the French fries have been in the eye of a storm. Last year, the The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a study that found that people who consumed fried potatoes more than two-tree times a week had a higher mortality risk than those who did not or consumed potatoes in a different way, without skinning and/or deep frying them.
