Ultra-processed food consumption and cancer risk: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Diets that encourage the consumption of ultra-processed foods may trigger the development of different types of cancer, including breast, pancreatic, and colorectal cancer.

This study analyzed how ultra-processed food intake affects the incidence of cancer. Researchers compiled data and evidence from a pool of 11 studies. 

Researchers discovered that higher ingestion of ultra-processed foods translated to greater risk of cancer, particularly breast, colorectal, and pancreatic cancer. This study provides robust evidence supporting the cancer-promoting effect of ultra-processed foods.
