Acrylamide in food: Unraveling exposure and risk
Two years ago, Swedish scientists first reported unexpectedly high levels of the chemical acrylamide, a probable human carcinogen, in carbohydrate-rich foods, including potato chips, French fries, and some breads. How does acrylamide form? Which foods carry the highest levels? Does acrylamide pose a significant cancer risk? These and other question will be discussed at the 227th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim March 28-April1. (2004-03-29)

Symposium explores health effects of acrylamide, ways to reduce it in food
Acrylamide, a widely-used synthetic chemical that some studies have linked to cancer and neurological damage, has recently been shown to occur naturally in an increasing number of foods ranging from French fries to coffee. The potential health effects of acrylamide and ways to reduce its content in food will be explored during a three-day symposium, (2007-08-21)

Hydrogel nanoparticles provide foundation for tunable photonic crystals via controlled de-swelling
Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a family of hydrogel-based nanoparticles that can be used to form photonic crystals whose optical properties can be precisely tuned by thermally adjusting the particles' water content. (2002-04-08)

The unseen impact - could adult diseases be caused by food and chemicals before birth?
Alcohol, caffeine, raw meats and blue cheese: all foods pregnant women are advised to avoid because of potential risks to their unborn children. But what of foods women consume, or chemicals they come into contact with, where the damage might not become obvious until many years down the line? 300,000 women across Europe are taking part in a project involving Leeds to look at the 'unseen' effects of food and chemicals on the unborn child.

Lens replacement material holds prospect of 'young' eyes for people over 40
A gel-like material being developed by scientists at the VA Hospital and Washington University in St. Louis could eventually mean the end of bifocals and contacts for millions of older people who suffer from presbyopia. The research will be presented Sept. 8 in New York at the 226th national meeting of the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society. (2003-09-08)

Acrylamide exposure impairs blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier function
The blood-brain barrier prevents xenobiotics from entering the central nervous system. Growing evidence indicates that neurotoxins, such as tributyltin, manganese and nanoparticles, may disrupt the function of the blood-brain and blood-cerebrospinal fluid barriers. (2014-05-16)

In vitro study suggests acrylamide causes DNA damage
Acrylamide, a possible human carcinogen that has been found in a variety of fried and starch-based foods, appears to exert its mutagenicity (the capacity to induce mutations) by forming DNA adducts and introducing genetic mutations, according to a study in the June 18 issue of the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. DNA adducts can interfere with the DNA replication process and lead to mutations and, in theory, to tumor formation. (2003-06-17)

How acrylamide might be formed in starch-rich foods
A Cornell University chemist explains how acrylamide might form when starch-rich food is fried or baked. (2002-12-19)
