Title
Association of ultra-processed food consumption with cardiovascular mortality in the Prostate, Lung, Colorectal, and Ovarian Cancer Screening Trial
Summary
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the most common cause of death in the US and worldwide. It is well known that diet can directly and strongly affect the occurrence and development of CVD 1, 2. Ultra-processed foods are industrial formulations mostly or entirely made from substances derived from additives and foods, and their consumption has been associated with a series of health outcomes. However, whether ultra-processed food consumption is a predictor of cardiovascular mortality remains controversial. Additionally, to our knowledge, only one study has investigated the association of ultra-processed food consumption with cardiovascular outcomes in the US population to date.
