Nowadays, people know that processed foods increase the risk of developing chronic diseases, cancer, dyslipidemia, and arterial hypertension.
However, the latest research discovers even worse results.
In other words, people who eat a lot of extremely processed food like industrial bread and ready meals are at high risk of premature death.
For instance, that is the opinion of French researchers.
In addition, these foods are often associated with other unhealthy habits like smoking or insufficient exercise.
After that, scientists say they need additional studies to complete the picture.
Above that, the relationship between diet and disease is usually complex and the results of the research are also often misunderstood.
In addition, the results of French scientists, published last week in “JAMA Internal Medicine”, show that by increasing the share of extremely processed foods in the diet by only 10 percent the risk of premature death of any cause increased by 15 percent.
These foods are over-processed and high-calorie foods with too much salt, sugar, carbohydrate, saturated fats, and also flavor enhancers.
In addition, these processed foods contain some other additives that are carcinogenic.
For instance, it is mainly about foods in which the industrial process of production use processes such as hydrogenation, hydrolysis, extrusion or prefabrication.
In addition, do not forget about foods with added colors, emulsifiers, flavor enhancers, and other additives.
Above all, many of these foods contain very little vitamins and fibers.
Try to avoid these types of food
In addition, in accordance with the NEW Food Classification System recognized by the World Health Organization, including the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), foodstuffs, depending on the degree of processing, are categorized into four groups or no processing, using additives in the feed food, food processing, and extreme processing.
Similarly, researchers point out that the most dangerous for health is a group of extremely processed foods.
In other words, these types of foods are fourth in the list of the NOVA Food Classification System.
In addition, salted meat is a piece of processed food.
However, smoked meat with added nitrites and also preservatives is classified in extremely processed foods.
In other words, this is the best to share these with your friends and your family members.
