  • Study in mice examines impact of reused cooking oil on breast cancer progression

    The compounds in frying oils that are repeatedly reheated to high temperatures may trigger cell proliferation and metastases in breast tumors, scientists in food science and human nutrition at the University of Illinois found in a new study of mice. The researchers, from left, food chemistry professor Nicki J. Engeseth, food science professor William G. Helferich and graduate student Ashley Oyirifi.
