We know that processed foods have been connected to health issues like hypertension and heart disease. Now, researchers are saying processed foods are also associated to increased cancer.

Najja Parker, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Ultra-processed foods include packaged breads and snacks; confectionery and desserts; sodas and sweetened drinks; and meat balls, poultry and fish nuggets.
