Can foods that are fried use oil that has been used over and over again cause cancer?
Hello, thanks for the question.
Cooking oil that is used repeatedly is certainly not good for health. Cooking oil that is too often exposed to heat will cause the chemical structure of the oil to change so that it will damage the nutritional content and can cause health problems. The use of cooking oil repeatedly will cause high cholesterol levels in the body thereby increasing the risk of heart disease, stroke, etc. due to the buildup of plaque in the blood vessels so that blood flow becomes smooth, and increases the risk of cancer due to changes in chemical structure in the oil. Therefore, it is recommended to use oil a maximum of 3 times as long as the color and clarity of the oil does not change. In addition, you should still do a healthy lifestyle, eat healthy and nutritious food, adequate rest, meet your fluid needs, exercise regularly, and avoid stress, smoking, and alcohol.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
