Regular consumption of deep fried foods, like French fries, fried chicken and doughnuts, is liked to an aggressive version of prostate cancer. That's the result of a study at The Hutchinson Center's Program in Prostate Cancer Research.

The co-director of the center believes, when oil is heated to high temperatures, potentially carcinogenic compounds can form in fried food.

Previous studies have shown eating foods with high-heat cooking methods, like grilling meat, may increase prostate cancer.
