The Bottom Line:

A new study adds another food that could increase your risk of death


  • A new study suggests that if you eat fried potatoes of any form at least twice a week it could increase your risk of death.
  • The eight-year study found that those who ate French fries twice a week increased their risk of death more than double those who didn’t
  • Boiling, baking or mashing potatoes don’t pose the same risk

Is there anything bad about a French Fry? Okay, they aren’t exactly health food but they certainly are delicious. But now a new study suggests that not only are they not healthy, but they could actually kill you.

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition suggests that if you eat fried potatoes of any form at least twice a week it could increase your risk of death.

The eight-year study followed the fried potato eating habits 4,400 volunteers between the ages of 45 and 79 and found that those who ate the greasy goodness twice a week increased their risk of death more than double those who didn’t. 

There is one bit of good news in the study. Turns out if you don’t want to die you don’t have to give up potatoes altogether, just the fried ones. Boiling, baking or mashing potatoes showed no increased risk of death at all. At least until another study tells us differently.

Fort Worth police officers came across a senior citizen who didn’t have AC, so they bought him one.


Things are really heating up outside in parts of the country, including Texas. So when Fort Worth police officers came across a senior citizen whose air conditioner didn’t work, they didn’t want to leave the man suffering.

So these kind cops headed to Home Depot, where they bought a new cooling unit for 95-year-old Julius Hatley. And the store’s managers and employees were so moved by the generous gesture, they dug into their own pockets and donated $150 toward the purchase.

Now Hatley can stay nice and cool and he says he appreciates the officers’ gift.

A California elementary teacher’s boyfriend proposes to her by writing a children’s book that she reads aloud at a school staff meeting.


When Eric Hernandez wanted to propose to his girlfriend of five years, he knew it had to be special. Because his long-term love, Melanie Goldsmith, is a teacher who’s passionate about reading, he came up with the idea to make a children’s book about their relationship, with two bunnies in the story.

So Hernandez planned for months and even got Goldsmith’s fellow teachers in on his idea. They asked her to read the book aloud during a meeting for a “training exercise.” But as she realizes the story is about her, her emotions take over and she can’t finish, so another teacher does, reading the last page which says, “Will you marry me?”

Just then, Hernandez comes in and gets down on one knee to pop the question in person. And of course, she says yes. Now this California couple has a book of their love story, appropriately called “Making Memories,” with a very happy ending.

New Whisper thread has guys revealing the things they don’t worry about even though their gals do


  • A new thread on the anonymous Whisper app has fellas sharing the things they don’t really care about in relationships, even though their girls really do
  • One guy doesn’t care about hairy legs, while another doesn’t care if their gal is a nerd, and one doesn’t worry about his gal’s diet
  • Another doesn’t care about his FB status of his relationship, even though it drives his girl crazy 

We bet a lot of girls out there spend hours stressing about things with regards to their relationship, but it’s pretty apparent they should stop worrying. It seems men don’t really care about all the things girls worry about on a daily basis, and now some guys are sharing exactly what those things are. 

A new thread on the anonymous Whisper app has fellas sharing the things they don’t really care about in relationships, even though their girls really do, and after reading them, maybe gals will start to relax a little more around their man.

Among the confessions:

  • “Sometimes my girl doesn’t want to be intimate because she hasn’t shaved her legs. I literally couldn’t care less how hairy her legs are.”
  • “My gf was really scared about showing off stomach and shoulders at first because of stretch marks. I don’t see what the big deal was. None of us are perfect.”
  • “My girlfriend is so sensitive about her diet. She seems to think if I see her eat a French fry I’ll lose interest. I like when girls are casual about their diets. It’s easier to pick a restaurant.”
  • “My girlfriend worries she’s too much of a 'nerd' for me. She doesn’t realize that just makes me love her more.”
  • “My girlfriend always asks if I think my best friend likes her. I literally couldn’t care less. I’d ditch him before I ever ditch her.”
  • “My girlfriend worries she’s less attractive during her period. She couldn’t be more wrong.”
  • “My girlfriend hates when I talk about celebs I think are beautiful. I don’t care if she thinks other guys are hot as long as she doesn’t touch them. Why can’t I like Scarlett Johansson?”
  • “My girlfriend is so stressed out about meeting my family. I keep telling her it’s no big deal but she can’t let it go. But I love her so obviously they will too. Why can’t she see that?”
  • “It’s cute that my girlfriend is trying to learn everything about my favorite basketball team. She doesn’t realize I don’t care if she hates basketball but I appreciate the effort.”
  • “Relationship status: girlfriend of three years just cried because she finally farted in front of me.”
  • “My girlfriend is mad because I haven’t updated our relationship status on FB. Seriously? Who cares? We know we’re in a relationship.”
  • “I just got in trouble with my gf because I wore jeans on a date and she wore a cute dress. I didn’t know I was supposed to dress up! We went to the movies.”
  • “My girlfriend gets so mad if I watch things on the DVR without her. What’s the big deal? I won’t spoil it.”
