A new study has shown that eating foods that have been ‘ultra processed’ could increase your risk of cancer.
According to researchers from the Sorbonne in Paris and the University of Sao Paulo, in some developed countries processed foods make up around 50% of an average person’s diet, and this could be contributing to rising cancer levels. In fact, a 10% increase in eating ultra-processed food was associated with a 12% increased risk of overall cancer.
So what are the worst offenders when it comes to processed foods? And how can you replace them in your diet?
