L'acrylamide, contaminant alimentaire cancérogène méconnu ?

Abstract : The recent discovery of acrylamide in 2002, probably carcinogenic to humans, in a variety of fried and starch based food products has raised concern worldwide. Acrylamide is clearly carcinogenic ins studies in animals, in which it causes increased tumour incidence at a variety of sites. At this time, there is no information to indicate any significant difference between rodents and humans in sensitivity to cancer formation from acrylamide. Neurotoxicity appears to be the only documented effect or acrylamide in human epidemiological studies, reproductive toxicity, genotoxicity and carcinogenicity are potential human health risks on the basis of only animal studies. More data on cancer epidemiology in populations of known high exposure are required. It is recommended to make efforts to decrease the acrylamide content of the diet. More guidance on this by national and international authorities is warranted.
