In a study [PDF] that confirms what should be obvious to anyone not in complete denial, researchers have finally put a number on the dangers posed by overconsumption of fried foods: a 13% increase in the chance of death.

Specifically, researchers studied the effects of eating fried food every day on the health of post-menopausal women in the United States.

Regularly eating fried food is linked with a heightened risk of death from any cause and heart-related death, among postmenopausal women, finds a U.S. study in The BMJ.

The study was published Wednesday in the medical journal BMJ and reported that women eating a daily portion of fried fish or shellfish saw a 7 per cent greater risk of death.

Several cohort studies in U.S. populations have found that higher consumption of fried foods was associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, they write, but a study in a Mediterranean population found no association between fried food consumption and coronary heart disease.

The researchers looked at about 20 years' worth of data for nearly 107,000 older women in the USA, ages 50-79. They looked at the food habits of the participants from 1993 to 1998 and followed up with them for about 18 years on average. However, this finding was not statistically significant, the study added.

The study found women who ate one serving of fried chicken had a 13% higher risk of death than women who did not eat any fried foods.

According to Bao, the link between fried food and negative health issues is caused by the combined effects of the food itself and the frying process.

If you eat fried chicken or fish on the regular, you could have a higher risk of dying.

You knew fried chicken wasn't exactly healthy.

In Spain, fried foods are often made at home using olive oil, the study says.

The results are not surprising "given the association of fried food to weight gain and obesity, as well as elevation of cholesterol and triglycerides", said Dr. Guy Mintz, who was not part of the study. This matters, Bao explained, because if people fry food at home, they are less likely to reuse oil, which creates more harmful products in the oil that are absorbed into the food.

The authors note that the study wasn't able to identify what types of oils were used to cook the foods, at what temperature or which cooking methods were used.

The researchers note that as an observational study the findings can not show cause and effect, and as it only includes United States women it may not be applicable to other populations.

The American Heart Association has more about a heart-healthy diet.

Increased risk of premature death was 12 percent higher for once-a-week consumption. Meats also tend to be more deeply fried than many snack foods.
