Dr Catherine Crofts reviews research published in JAMA Internal Medicine linking, for the first time, the consumption of processed foods and a higher risk of death.

The cohort study of 44, 551 French adults 45 years or older, found a 10% increase in the proportion of ultra-processed food consumption was statistically significantly associated with a 14% higher risk of all-cause mortality.
