Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Fear of Frying

You know those supposedly dangerous chemicals that microwaves put in foods? Roasting and, especially, frying put even more of those chemicals in foods.

But wait, there's more:

Unfortunately, the researchers also found that as these volatile compounds reduced, so did the aroma and flavor of the food.
When frying is outlawed, only outlaws will have tasty food.

The Maillard reaction is our friend. The more I engage in foodie style cooking, the more I realize that. Last night I cooked tamales, which involved roasting spices before grinding them, browning pine nuts, browning onion garlic and a Tbsp of flour, roasting peppers over a gas flame until they blistered and blackened.

If all of this means that I'm going to cut my expected lifespan from 80 to 79.8, sign me up!
