Results of the study published in the «British Medical Journal» (BMJ), are based on an analysis of data from almost 10 million people who took part in a number of studies on the connection between nutrition and health.

This information was reported by T4, URA-Inform reports.  

During the study, experts came to the conclusion that there is a direct relationship between the consumption of ultra-processed foods and negative consequences for human health. It turned out that the harm from them is comparable, and often exceeds the risks from tobacco products.

In particular, the analysis showed that with sufficiently frequent consumption of chips and fast food (instant food), mortality from cardiovascular diseases increases more than by more than 50%, while overall mortality increases by 20%, the risk of obesity increases by 40%, and the likelihood of developing mental disorders increases by 53%.

Researchers note that the efforts of regulatory authorities and the public are needed to in order to force the manufacturers of these products to indicate on the packaging information about the composition and its effect on the body, by analogy with tobacco products.

Let us recall that it was previously reported that there is a dangerous sign of high blood pressure, which many ignore: which should alert you.
