EFSA CONTAM Panel (EFSA Panel on Contaminants in the Food Chain), 2015. Scientific Opinion on acrylamide in food
EFSA was asked to deliver a scientific opinion on acrylamide (AA) in food. AA has widespread uses as an industrial chemical. It is also formed when certain foods are prepared at temperatures aboveExpand
Dietary acrylamide intake and risk of breast cancer: The Japan Public Health Center‐based Prospective Study
Dietary acrylamide intake was not associated with the risk of breast cancer in this population‐based prospective cohort study of Japanese women. Expand
Review of epidemiologic studies of dietary acrylamide intake and the risk of cancer
The collective evidence suggests that a high level of dietary acrylamide intake is not a risk factor for breast, endometrial, or ovarian cancers, which have generated particular interest because of a conjectured hormonal mechanism of acylamide. Expand
Dietary Acrylamide and Human Cancer: A Systematic Review of Literature
A majority of the studies reported no statistically significant association between dietary acrylamide intake and various cancers, and few studies reported increased risk for renal, endometrial, and ovarian cancers; however, the exposure assessment has been inadequate leading to potential misclassification or underestimation of exposure. Expand
A Review of Dietary Intake of Acrylamide in Humans
An overview of estimated dietary intake of acrylamide shows that AA exposure is widespread and the large variation across and within populations shows a potential for reduced intake among those with the highest exposure. Expand
Biomedical rationale for acrylamide regulation and methods of detection.
The purpose of this review is to survey the studies performed on rodents and humans that identified the potential health impact of acrylamide in the human diet, and provide insight into established and emerging analytical methods used to detect acryamide in blood, aqueous samples, and food. Expand
Dietary acrylamide intake and risk of women’s cancers: a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies
No significant association was found between dietary acrylamide intake and the risk of breast, endometrial and ovarian cancers in different subgroup analyses by smoking status, menopausal status, BMI status and different types of breast cancer. Expand
Chemical food contaminants during food processing: sources and control
This articles provides a comprehensive review of known chemical contaminants from the production of raw materials to the consumption of food products as well as prevention and control measures. Expand
Dietary Intake of Acrylamide and Risk of Breast, Endometrial, and Ovarian Cancers: A Systematic Review and Dose–Response Meta-analysis
A systematic review of the association between estimated dietary intake of acrylamide and risk of female breast, endometrial, and ovarian cancers in nonexperimental studies published through February 25, 2020 found evidence of a null or inverse relation between exposure and risk, particularly among never smokers and postmenopausal women.

The Evaluation of Childhood Foods and Infant Formula Exposure to Furan, Chloropropanols and Acrylamide Contamination by Food Processing
This review suggests that in this sense all shareholders’ (university, non-governmental organizations, public and private sector) acting in concert with each other is crucially important for the health of individuals and overall society. Expand

This study has two parts. In the first part, fourteen carcinogen risk assessments of acrylamide made by different expert groups during the years 1976-2002 are compared in terms of their overallExpand
Dietary acrylamide and risk of renal cell cancer
There is no association between dietary acrylamide intake through diet and risk of renal cell cancer, and data from a large population‐based Swedish case‐control study of kidney cell cancer is reanalyzed. Expand
Acrylamide in food
Chemistry, biochemistry, and safety of acrylamide. A review.
Acrylamide (CH2CHCONH2), an industrially produced α,β-unsaturated (conjugated) reactive molecule, is used worldwide to synthesize polyacrylamide. Polyacrylamide has found numerous applications as aExpand
Dietary acrylamide and cancer of the large bowel, kidney, and bladder: Absence of an association in a population-based study in Sweden
Reanalysed a population-based Swedish case–control study found reassuring evidence that dietary exposure to acrylamide in amounts typically ingested by Swedish adults in certain foods has no measurable impact on risk of three major types of cancer. Expand
Fried potatoes and human cancer
The data provide reassuring evidence for the lack of an important association between consumption of fried/baked potatoes and cancer risk and no evidence of interaction with age, gender, alcohol and tobacco use. Expand
Use of oral contraceptives and breast cancer risk: The Norwegian-Swedish Women's Lifestyle and Health Cohort Study.
Current/recent use of OCs is associated with an increased breast cancer risk, and use of combined OCs and progestin-only pills seem to increase the risk at the same level. Expand
