What is Acrylamide?

Acrylamide is a known nerve-toxin and suspected carcinogen.

It is extremely prevalent in our food supply (think processed and fast foods).

This issue was first made public in 2002. Yet many of us have not even heard about acrylamides.

The European Chemical Agency added acrylamide to the list of substances of high concern in March of 2010.

Hey – want a large “cigafry”?
