WASHINGTON – New research found a link between ultra-processed foods and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and early death.

Researchers published two studies in the medical journal “The BMJ” Wednesday.








The studies found a link between ultra-processed foods and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease and early death. The researchers didn’t find an actual cause-and-effect relationship, just a link.

Ultra-processed foods include packaged baked goods, dehydrated soups, ice cream, and many frozen TV dinners









A senior author of one of the studies says foods in that category account for more than half the total dietary energy consumed in high-income countries like the US.

So while those foods might be tasty, cheap, and convenient, they may not be the best choice at checkout.
