‘Ultra Processed’ Foods To Avoid

News

We all know that eating processed foods isn’t the healthiest of choices.

And according to a new study published in the journal of the American Medical Association eating a lot of unhealthy, “ultra-processed” foods may even shorten your life span.

Researchers found that a 10-percent increase in your consumption of ultra-processed foods was linked to a higher risk of death by 14-percent.

Ultra-processed foods are typically formulated with salt, sugar, oils and fats, dyes or flavors, and other additives.

So next time you’re cruising the grocery aisles try to avoid these items:

  • carbonated and fruit-flavored drinks
  • ice cream
  • margarines and spreads
  • cookies, pastries, and cakes
  • pre-made pies, pasta and pizza dishes
  • chicken nuggets
  • burgers
  • hot dogs

You can still enjoy these foods, but to live a longer, healthier life keep it in moderation.
