Hubby's nephew is working on his masters degree in Bio Chemistry. I'll pass along the question and see what he can find out.

According to the Wiki site on Acrylamide, that compound isn't present from boiling. Just baking and frying.

However, studies in human populations have failed to produce consistent results, and it remains unclear whether this is due to a reduced risk in a natural setting or the methodological difficulties inherent in such studies. For example, it might be difficult to isolate the effects of acrylamide because it is so ubiquitous in Western diets.
