KID NEWS: Snacking on Chips Can Take Years Off of Your Life

Did you know that starchy foods – like potato chips – can shorten your life?  They can.

Participants in a research group who had been snacking on starchy foods, like potato chips, were more likely to risk early death.  In fact, they had a 50-52% increase of living a much shorter life.  That means that half of chip-eaters could live much longer, if they just switch to something better – healthier.

The study also reveals a 44-57% risk of death, related to cardiovascular disease.  That means the chips and starchy foods are really bad for your heart.  And it’s kind of like looking at two friends, who are munching on chips, and knowing that one of them is not going to live nearly as long as the other, because of heart damage.
