Acrylamide is made when the starches and sugars of food react to heating. It is especially present in french fries, potato chips and baked goods. You know acrylamide is happening when the food gets golden/darker. Acrylamide is an agent that has been proven to cause cancer in laboratory animals, so some scientists believe that it might cause cancer in humans as well. Acrylamide: C3H3ONH2 is formed when it is heated from 120 and 190 °Celsius.

The report, The Health Consequences of Involuntary Exposure to Tobacco Smoke, finds that even brief secondhand smoke exposure can cause immediate harm. The report says the only way to protect nonsmokers from the dangerous chemicals in secondhand smoke is to eliminate smoking indoors.
"The report is a crucial warning sign to nonsmokers and smokers alike," HHS Secretary Michael Leavitt said. "Smoking can sicken and kill, and even people who do not smoke can be harmed by smoke from those who do."
Only smoke-free environments effectively protect nonsmokers from secondhand smoke exposure in indoor spaces.
My information is from: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), through its Office on Smoking and Health (OSH), is the lead federal agency for comprehensive tobacco prevention and control. OSH is a division within the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, which is located within CDC's Coordinating Center for Health Promotion. Just one of their goals is to eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke.
New data that are available in the STATE System:

Smoking kills more people than alcohol, AIDS, car crashes, illegal drugs, murders, and suicides combined -- and thousands more die from other tobacco-related causes -- such as fires caused by smoking (more than 1,000 deaths/year nationwide) and smokeless tobacco use. No good estimates are currently available, however, for the number of California citizens who die from these other tobacco-related causes, or for the much larger numbers who suffer from tobacco-related health problems each year without actually dying.
Smoking-Caused Monetary Costs in California
Annual health care costs in California directly caused by smoking $9.1 billion
- Portion covered by the state Medicaid program $2.9 billion
Residents' state & federal tax burden from smoking-caused government expenditures $630 per household
Smoking-caused productivity losses in California $8.58 billion
Amounts do not include health costs caused by exposure to secondhand smoke, smoking-caused fires, spit tobacco use, or cigar and pipe smoking. Other non-health costs from tobacco use include residential and commercial property losses from smoking-caused fires (more than $500 million per year nationwide); extra cleaning and maintenance costs made necessary by tobacco smoke and litter (about $4+ billion nationwide for commercial establishments alone); and additional productivity losses from smoking-caused work absences, smoking breaks, and on-the-job performance declines and early termination of employment caused by smoking-caused disability or illness (dollar amount listed above is just from productive work lives shortened by smoking-caused death).
