One regular serving of friend chicken or fish has been associated with a higher risk of death from any cause except cancer, according to a new study.

The subjects, American postmenopausal women who enjoyed friend chicken once or more per day had a 13% higher risk of death from any cause compared with women who didn’t partake of fried food, according to the study published in the medical journal BMJ.

Women eating a daily portion of fried fish or shellfish also saw a 7% greater risk of death.

The study’s researchers claim limiting the consumption of fried foods, especially chicken and fish, could improve health.

“We know fried food consumption is something very common in the United States and also around the world,” explained Wei Bao, said the study’s lead author. “Unfortunately, we know very little about long-term health effect of fried food consumption.”

Previous research has shown links between higher consumption of fried foods and an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes.

A 2017 study found that people who eat fried potatoes two or more times a week double their risk of an early death compared with those who avoid them.

Bao’s ream examined the eating habits of nearly 107,000 American women between the ages of 50 and 79 from 1993 to 1998 and then followed up for about 18 years.

The data showed eating fried chicken had a 13% greater risk of dying early and 12% increased risk of a heart-related death.

“Although there is an increased risk of eating fried food in terms of mortality, the risk is lower with low frequency,” said Bao.
