ATLANTA (CNN) – The new fast and easy speed you love is to hit one because of new research from France: We have a higher risk of 14 percent to die early with every increase of 10 per First in the quantity of foods that are tested considerably.
"Post-powered foods are manufactured industrially from multiple ingredients that include additives used for technological and / or cosmetic purposes generally," written by the authors of the study, published in the JAMA Internal Medicine journal. "Pre-processed foods are consumed in the form of snacks, desserts, or meals ready for meals or meals, and their consumption has increased" in recent years. "
This trend may increase in
In the United States, 61
To understand the relationship both post-processed foods and the risk of the death of previous deaths, the researchers listed the help of 44,551 French and 45-year-olds for a period of two years. Their average age was 57, with almost 73 per cent One of the female participants. Each made 24 hour nutrition records every six months as well as completing questionnaires due to their health (including a body mass index and a lucky back), physical activities and sociodemography.
The researchers carried out the all-processed whole-processed food intake and food consumption.
Transformed foods equivalent more than 14 percent of the total food weight consumed and about 29 percent of the total calories they received. Pre-processed food consumption was involved in younger age, lower income, lower education level, living alone, higher BMI and lower physical activity level.
During the study period, 602 participants died. After adjusting to factors such as smoking, the risk researchers calculate 14% higher death rate in the case of an increase of 10 percent on the offense of pre-processed foods consumed.
Further studies are needed to consolidate these results, say. However, they are considered that the additives, packings (chemicals that left the food during storage) and the processing itself, including high temperature processing, can be the factors that have an adverse effect on health .
The results "mean, we know so far about the adverse effects of food additives on brain function and health, but the effects observed are very small," writes Molly Bray, chairman Department of Nutrition Sciences at the University of Texas at Austin, by email. He was not involved in the research.
Nurgul Fitzgerald, associate professor in the Department of Nutrition Sciences at Rutgers, New Jersey State University, offered "kudos for the authors" for "strong" studies in terms of design.
However, "ultraprocessed" is a huge category of foods, and combining many things together, researchers lost sensitivity to their results and can not reflect exactly what the effect was to be done in the study , said Fitzgerald, who was not involved in the research.
"Some factors may be more harmful or less harmful than others. It's too complicated," she said, adding that we can not "run it".
Do people eat more of these processed foods?
"We are living in a fast world, and people are looking for suitable solutions. We are constantly extending for a while," said Fitzgerald. "People are looking for quick solutions, a meal that is made fast."
When choosing food, the flavor is the factor No. 1 for most consumers, she said, but prices and convenience are also important, and with processed foods, that convenience The factor is probably "top of the list: grab and go, ready to eat."
Fitzgerald recommends that people not only face the pack when they buy pre-made meals, but also behind.  "See the list of ingredients. Do you understand all the ingredients that go into your foods?" she asked. Buy these products only "with the smallest ingredients and ingredients that you understand."
