Acrylamides Found in Prune Juice and Olives

From the May 2004 edition of Dr. Fuhrman's Healthy Times:

Acrylamide, a cancer-causing substance that caused scares when it was found in fried potatoes and other popular foods, is also found in olives and prune juice, U.S. regulators reported recently. Relatively high levels were also found in arrowroot cookies, commonly given to small children as teething biscuits. Peanut butter, cookies, and fried chicken were also sources.

Dr. Fuhrman comments:
It is prudent to avoid acrylamides, a potent carcinogen in animal studies. We learn something new every day, and I no longer recommend roasted peanut butter for children. Try the freshly ground raw cashew and raw almond butter now available at
