    I see you have a video already with some information on acrylamide. However, I was listening to a podcast with Dr. Graham (fruitarian guy – 80 10 10) and one of the benefits of sticking to his plan is not ingesting acrylamide which he states is a carcinogen. So, should I stop drinking coffee? Stop baking my potato? Stop eating organic corn chips? Stop eating breakfast cereals such as organic corn flakes? You get the idea. I’m about to adapt my diet from just gluten free vegan, to gluten free, modified raw vegan. My version of a modified raw vegan being someone who allows rice, quinoa, beans and potato type starches in a crock pot, or boiled. I won’t give up coffee though. Am I overly concerned with regard to acrylamide according to any science out there? Thank you for your great work!

      Just to throw this out there, a possible alternative to trying to get carcinogens to their absolute minimum might be to try to make all the easy cuts to carcinogens and then focus on increasing your antioxidents, polyphenols, and carcinogen blockers.

    Dr. Greger, what do you feed your cat with?
