FDA should be way more stringent about drug approval: "93 cancer drug indications granted accelerated approval by the FDA from December 11, 1992, through May 31, 2017, confirmatory trials reported that 20% (n = 19) had improvement in overall survival"

positive correlation does not imply accurate estimate -- intercept is crucial here. Authors don't seem to understand it. Also, it seems that they asked to estimate energy density from 0 to 100 but then plotted it against kCal/g -- this doesn't make any sense

3) does not look at health. They only report existence of some amount of some "toxic aldehydes". Everything is toxic to cells at some level and you can't just claim negative impact on human health from this.

2) does not look at fries (or other food), only at oil in which the food is prepared but it's not clear how much and which exactly oil residues are left on food

1) does not look at mcdonalds. It's not clear that mcdonalds use oil for 40 hours before changing and brief googling suggests this is generally not true

further, your "evidence" that fries are bad is at least 3 steps removed from the thing we're actually interested in. we want: are mcdonald's fries unhealthy this paper:

you wrote: "carcinogenic aldehydes from the re-heated oil" and "Here, have a link on the re-heated oil". However, the link in question () does not have any mentions of any carcinogenic aldehydes.

yes! this is the worst part. you have to make different decisions and if you're e.g. hanging out with autistic nerds oblivious to these bad social dynamics they will literally not understand why are you just kicking people out being a mod is a terrible job
