    Original link: http://youtu.be/qDF1Mi3z4mI Just when you thought it was safe to grab some munchies in the cupboard, a new study warns of cancer in cans and bags—in cans of Pringles and in bags of a myriad of other potato chips. This disturbing truth about an all-time favorite snack may be forcing food manufacturers to change their processing methods. But can the changes really make a difference? Researchers find that potato chips, among other processed foods, are loaded with the cancer causing chemical, acrylamide (uh-kril-uh-mahyd). The substance forms when carbohydrate-rich foods are cooked at very high temperatures. Some of the worst...

    An appeals court in Britain said Wednesday that Procter and Gamble's snack treat Pringles were, technically, potato chips and subject to sales tax. The ruling has a potential to require the company to pay $155 million in back taxes and $31 million per year, but a Procter and Gamble spokesperson said prior arrangements with Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs meant there were no back taxes due, The Daily Telegraph reported. Foods are rarely subject to sales tax in Britain, but potato chips happen to be singled out as an exception. The court heard arguments on whether or not Pringles, made...

And neither did the kind of influential Republicans Pringle needs to back the bid of the home of Disneyland to host the GOP in four years. Pringle had a lavish spread laid out late Wednesday afternoon at the Ritz-Carlton in lower Manhattan, a new hotel with a spectacular view of the New York Harbor. Carved meats, Caesar salad, pasta, an open bar and hors d'oeuvres. Beach Boys...
