[Alert] These Popular Foods Up Your Death Risk 62%!
For most of the history of the world, humans ate actual food.
Meat came from animals that lived in the wild. Vegetables came from the backyard garden. Berries were picked in the wild in season.
You get the picture.
But just in the past 100 years or so, our food has been hijacked. And even though we’re eating more than ever before, what most people are putting in their mouths isn’t really food at all.
It’s chemicals that are made to look, smell, taste, and feel like food.
Sure, it might be cheaper than the real thing, but your health is paying the ultimate price.
Two recent studies have shown that ultra-processed foods are killing people… including seniors like me and you.
One study, published in the BMJ, found that every 10% increase in ultra-processed foods was tied to a 12% increase in heart disease.
The second study had similar findings. Eating more than four servings of ultra-processed foods per day was tied to a 62% higher risk of death.
Each additional serving increased the risk by 18%.
Those are disturbing numbers, especially considering 1 in 5 Americans gets more than 80% of their calories from these ultra-processed foods.
So the big question is, what is the difference between “processed” and “ultra-processed?”
Processed food is any food that has been altered in any way. Even foods that have been canned or dried would fall into this category.
Ultra-processed foods typically have five or more ingredients and have been injected with flavors, sugars, fats, and chemical preservatives. In other words, it’s the majority of food that comes in a package.
Examples of ultra-processed food include soft drinks, chips, candy, ice cream, sweetened breakfast cereals, packaged soups, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, fries, and lots, lots more.
Like I always tell people, if you just stop the perimeter of the grocery store, you won’t have to worry about these types of foods.
And if you buy organic, you’ll be even more protected.
