If you eat fried chicken or fish on the regular, you could have a higher risk of dying.

A new study done on post-menopausal women in the United States found women who enjoyed fried chicken at least once a day had a 13-percent higher risk of death from any cause. That's compared with women who did not eat any fried food.

Women who ate fried fish or shellfish each day saw a 7-percent greater risk of dying.

More research on the subject needs to be done-- but the author's of the study concluded limiting consumption of fried foods could be better for your health.
