Why is frying food unhealthy?

Does anyone know why frying food is less healthy than broiling or baking?

Well obviously deep frying chicken in a batch of oil is bad for you. But let's say you fry salmon in a couple tablespoons of olive oil vs. baking the salmon in foil with a couple tbspoons of olive oil.

Why is one technique considered less healthy than the other?
