You dont say! https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/11/health/ultraprocessed-foods-early-death-study/index.html Link to the study: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamainternalmedicine/article-abstract/2723626?utm_campaign=articlePDF&utm_medium=articlePDFlink&utm_source=articlePDF&utm_content=jamainternmed.2018.7289 And in case you were wondering as to what the definition of “ultra-processed foods” was, here is that too: http://archive.wphna.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/WN-2016-7-1-3-28-38-Monteiro-Cannon-Levy-et-al-NOVA.pdf Reading the NOVA, it is not a surprise at how many Americans (and other Western countries) are not only obese, but of poor health. Really, take a read. I did some objective analysis on myself, what is in the pantry, we fall nearly 99% into the first 3 groups. The 4th, maybe once in awhile, like every 3 to 6 months.

Favorite is triple coffee, brewed, expresso and candied crushed bean. The ultra processed food is more like a chemistry experiment, though I do like cream soda and jelly beans. Like cigars I know they are bad but don’t care as sometimes you have to live a little. When I read ultra processed food all I could think of was is that not everything kraft foods makes? Need to have the food in title or would be same as dow chemicals. This reply was modified 3 months, 1 week ago by namelus.
