Ultra-processed foods linked to cancer: study

Scientists yesterday suggested a link between cancer and "ultra-processed" foods such as cookies, fizzy drinks and sugary cereals, though outside experts cautioned against reading too much into the study results.

Researchers from France and Brazil said the results of the study showed 10-percent increase in the proportion of ultra-processed foods in the diet was associated with increases of 12 percent in the risk of overall cancer and 11 percent in the risk of breast cancer”.

Foods on the list included packaged breads, buns, pizzas and cakes, crisps,  sodas,  instant noodles and soups.
