Ultraprocessed food speeds up early death in middle-aged adults: JAMA
French researchers have found that Ultraprocessed food increases and hastens mortality in middle-aged adults.
According to new Study, there is a 14% higher risk of early death with every 10% increase in the amount of ultraprocessed foods one eats.Te study has appeared in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine.
Essentially, a processed food is just anything that's been deliberately altered in some way before you eat it, which could mean that it's been frozen, dried, or artificially formulated from scratch into a microwaveable dinner.
There is a growing evidence that higher intake of ultraprocessed foods is associated with higher incidence of noncommunicable diseases. But the association between ultraprocessed foods consumption and mortality risk has never been investigated till date.
Laure Schnabel,at Université Paris , Sorbonne Paris Cité, Bobigny, France and associates conducted a study to assess the association between ultraprocessed foods consumption and all-cause mortality risk.
"Ultraprocessed foods are manufactured industrially from multiple ingredients that usually include additives used for technological and/or cosmetic purposes,"wrote the authors of the study, "Ultraprocessed foods are mostly consumed in the form of snacks, desserts, or ready-to-eat or -heat meals," and their consumption "has largely increased during the past several decades."
