Ultraprocessed Food and Increased Risk of Cancer: UK Study
Eating ultraprocessed food appears to be associated with an increased risk of cancer overall and with an increased risk of dying from cancer, particularly ovarian cancer, suggest researchers reporting an observational study from the United Kingdom.
