3 doctors agree
In brief: NO
No chinese food itself is not carcinogenic.
If some some chemical carcnogens are added then yes..Lacking strict restriction like our fda , carcinogen benzoapyrene was accedentally contaminated in camellia oil used in chinese cooking and dehp in tae. In any food nitrates(to nitrousamine), hydrogenated oils, sodium glucomate, acrylamids liberated by deep frying of starch are all carciinogens.
