Deep-frying is a popular form of food preparation used globally and throughout in the United States. Each time dietary oils are heated to deep-frying temperatures, they undergo chemical alterations that result in a new matrix of lipid structures. These lipid products include triglyceride dimers, polymers, oxidized triglycerides, and cyclic monomers, which raises nutritional concerns about associations between these lipid products and heightened health risks. Reports of associations between…

Thermally Processed Oil Exaggerates Colonic Inflammation and Colitis-Associated Colon Tumorigenesis in Mice
Dietary administration of frying oil exaggerated development of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and IBD-associated colon tumorigenesis in mice, and these effects could be mediated by the polar compounds in the frying oil.
Association of Repeatedly Heated Oil-Induced Hepatic Fat Accumulation and Development of Cancer: A Commentary
This commentary considered other recent evidence reporting the carcinogenic and mutagenic potential of RHMVO and emphasized the unique and easy to perform parameters to measure oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation, and increased inflammation in hepatocytes to identify progression toward hepatic carcinoma.
Metabolomics Reveals the Markers of Frying Vegetable Oil
Fried foods have potential adverse effects on health. However, the compounds produced during the process of frying in different vegetable oils are unknown. A metabolomics study was first conducted to


Health aspects of thermoxidized oils and fats.
Early studies used extremely overheated fats which were toxic if fed to animals. Later fats and oils were heated in equipments for deep-fat frying under the conditions of good commercial practice.
Effect of dietary fat on human breast cancer growth and lung metastasis in nude mice.
It is suggested that a high-fat diet rich in omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acid can enhance metastasis of human breast cancer cells in this mouse model, and the findings support the need for further study of the relationship between dietary polyuns saturated fats and breast cancer risk.
Dietary soy isoflavones increase metastasis to lungs in an experimental model of breast cancer with bone micro-tumors
Dietary soy isoflavones stimulate BC with bone micro-metastasis in mice and further investigations are needed regarding their consumption by BC survivors.

The cholesterol metabolite 27 hydroxycholesterol facilitates breast cancer metastasis through its actions on immune cells
It is shown that cholesterol promotes breast cancer metastasis via its metabolite 27-hydroxycholesterol (27HC) that acts on immune myeloid cells residing at the distal metastatic sites, thus promoting an immune suppressive environment.
Low calcium diet increases 4T1 mammary tumor carcinoma cell burden and bone pathology in mice
It is suggested that high bone turnover due to Ca insufficiency results in greater local mammary tumor cell growth, cortical osteolysis, woven bone formation, and invasion to muscle in mice.

The process of frying reviewed includes moisture, heat and fat/oil transfer, crust formation and various structural, textural and chemical changes in the product, and degradation of frying medium.
Chemistry of deep-fat frying oils.
Antioxidant decreases the frying oil oxidation, but the effectiveness of antioxidant decreases with high frying temperature, and lignan compounds in sesame oil are effective antioxidants in deep-fat frying.
Systemic stromal effects of estrogen promote the growth of estrogen receptor-negative cancers.
A novel mechanism by which estrogens promote the growth of ER-negative cancers is revealed, which was accompanied by a systemic increase in host angiogenesis and was attendant with the recruitment of bone marrow-derived stromal cells.
