Common Oil for Deep Frying Found To Make Genetic Changes in the Brain

Deep frying is not just for chicken anymore. Nowadays you can find deep fried everything. From deep-fried Oreos, to deep-fried turkey legs, fried pies and more. Deep frying involves submerging a food in hot oil. The ideal temperature is around 350–375°F (176–190°C). When a food is submerged in oil of this temperature, its surface cooks almost instantly and forms a type of “seal” that the oil cannot penetrate.
