Non-Communicable Diseases & Ultra-processed Food

A study at the Paris-Sorbonne University looked at almost 45,000 middle aged people. Researchers found that eating ultra-processed foods is linked to deaths from heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses. An increased consumption is linked with an increased risk of dying from one of these non-communicable diseases, called non-communicable because they are not contagious. Study author Dr. Laue Schnabel, a nutritional epidemiologist at Paris-Sorbonne University, pointed out that ultra-processed foods contain multiple ingredients. No doubt this is one reason that some say the shorter the list of ingredients the better. The Longevity Lifestyle Matters program advocates eating foods in as close to their natural state as possible. Data is now being made available to support that.
