Patatas fritas: peligro indefinido

Mira que nos lo tienen dicho:
“Todo lo que nos gusta o es caro, o engorda o es pecado”.

Pero hombre, uno se aferra a sus trazas de ingenuidad para creer que habrá algún resquicio en esta absurda regla. Pues no, tarde o temprano nos vienen con la penitencia en forma de michelines, de notificación del banco o, lo que es peor, de amenaza de cáncer, la presentación contemporánea del purgatorio.

Y eso es lo que pasa con las patatas fritas, ese modesto alimento que atrapa nuestra voluntad en cuanto lo probamos. Barato, nutritivo, sencillo de preparar... pero con muchos aguafiestas empeñados en castigar nuestro paladar. Hace dos o tres años se detectó la presencia de acrilamida, una peligrosa sustancia que suele formarse en tratamientos a elevadas temperaturas de alimentos con almidón en presencia de grasas, como sucede al freír la patata.

Bueno, el calor no solo genera sustancias cancerígenas en la patata. También hace años ya saltó la voz de alarma en Estados Unidos al descubrir que el máximo exponente de su “sofisticada” cocina nacional, la barbacoa, provocaba la aparición de cancerígenos en las zonas requemadas de la carne –que sí, las más sabrosas; si ya lo venía diciendo...-, también por la elevada temperatura en la superficie de contacto.

Pero las patatas fritas han ido acumulando más y más pruebas de cargo, como la noticia de Reuters de este mes de agosto que asociaba el elevado consumo de patatas fritas en los niños con una mayor incidencia de cáncer de mama al hacerse adultos.

Y eso que la U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) no acaba de tenerlo claro.

“La acrilamida puede producir cáncer en animales de laboratorio en altas dosis, pero no está claro que los bajos niveles presentes en los alimentos puedan provocar cáncer en humanos.”

Por si acaso, hay quien ha puesto el carro delante de los bueyes y se ha puesto a regular el asunto. Bueno, la cosa es que los californianos, guiados por la astuta batuta de Arnold Schwazennager, muy pronto encontrarán en todo tipo de bolsas de patatas fritas mensajes que alertan del peligro potencial de este alimento.

Conociendo al Gobernador, imagino que serán mensajes sutiles, como los que aparecen en los paquetes de tabaco:

“Comer patatas puede matar.”

Y es que las patatas comparten con el tabaco ese punto de adicción. Una vez que tomas la primera, ya no hay quien pare hasta terminar la bolsa. No es para tomarlo a broma, que una cosa es la acrilamida y otra más seria son los americanos. No me parece mal que nos avisen de los riesgos; lo que me preocupa es que tarde o temprano querrán salvarnos.

Ya lo estoy viendo: zonas reservadas para devoradores de patatas fritas, dispensarios de gusanitos para consumidores enganchados a las chips y obligación de servir los perritos calientes con tiras de zanahoria. En fin, que me veo comiendo el huevo con patatas cocidas. Si al menos diera el presupuesto para acompañar los cachelos con “pulpo a feira...”

Hi, seeing as you accept anonymous blogging I thought I would send you this info about online gambling from a guy at work. His blog features best casino and he has made a fortune from online gambling.

The Online Casino Startup Bonus

When choosing a trustworthy online casino there are many factors you need to consider. Just because one of the great number of online casinos existent today has impressive graphics, games and offers a wide diversity of bonuses, it doesnt mean its a fair and licensed one. Of course, such cases are rare, and, since today there are hundreds of reputable virtual casinos one can choose from, the most important criteria when deciding which one to play at is what they offer.

The first bonus you can get when you first open an account at a casino is the sign up bonus most casinos offer, an encouraging bonus of at least $25, but it may often be higher than $500. Some casinos even match your first deposit, meaning they double it, for free.

Many casinos also offer hundreds of dollars worth bonuses for new players and, if you're the one who brings other friends to the casino, things are even better than that. Most casinos offer a refer a friend bonus and, the more friends you have, the more fortunate you will get. For each friend you refer to the casino, you will get up to $1000, for each friend that they refer, you'll earn up to $300 and, furthermore, for each person that your friend's friends refer, you will earn up to $100. Once you are confident that particular casino is a reliable one, bring as many of your friends as you can to the casino and you'll have all the reasons to enjoy their games. The only thing you need to pay attention to afterwards is to handle the money wisely and not risk it all in a single bet, however confident you may be.

And most casinos give you an alternative to this. They offer you the chance to practice for free at first, and they also give you money to do that, so, it's practically free and you have nothing to lose. When you find the right casino you'll know it from the first time you play there. From then on, they will remind you how important you are to them by giving you special bonuses every month. These bonuses are somewhere around $100 and even higher and they reward you for being a loyal customer. These casinos also offer the so called comp points that accumulate throughout the course of the games you play and at certain points they turn into real money and, depending how long you have been playing at that casino, you may win lots of money.

The most important bonuses casinos offer are the jackpots and prizes you can win at their games. Casinos reward players with millions of dollars each day for their gaming skills. Tournaments and regular casino games are most profitable for gamblers. Only one progressive jackpot, for one single game of slots, for instance, can be of over $ 2 million. And it's only a matter of seconds and a bit of luck to win it.

Most casinos don't need a special occasion to give bonuses. They offer bonuses for the players third and fourth deposits, for being loyal to the casino, or just for being at a table at a certain time. So, it’s only a matter of finding the right casino and from there on, bonuses will keep coming to you. The only problem is that if you don't have a proper money management you won't treasure what you win, it will go away as easily as it came. We may all want those bonuses, but do we know what to do with them and how much of it we should risk in our next bet?


A guy at work recommends the following Casino Gaming Sites, (the trick is to sign up to each and get your startup bonuses) once you have played each one for a while you will get to know which one suits your style of play and which is therefore the most profitable one for you.


as follows:

CASINO CLASSIC


PLAY65.COM


888.COM


CASINO-FOR-ME

PARTY POKER.COM
