Eating 'ultraprocessed' foods accelerates your risk of early death, study says

https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/11/health/ultraprocessed-foods-early-death-study/index.html

The quick and easy noshes you love are chipping away at your mortality one nibble at a time, according to new research from France: We face a 14% higher risk of early death with each 10% increase in the amount of ultraprocessed foods we eat.

"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, published Monday in the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. "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."

This trend may drive an increase of early deaths due to chronic illnesses, including cancer and cardiovascular disease, they say.

Not for nothing, but I've adopted the John Belushi approach to life. "Live Fast, Die Young, leave a good looking corpse."
