Even more bad news about processed food

Reading time: 1 minute

In case you didn’t get the memo, processed foods are bad for you—and new research has added to the bad news by discovering they can also cause throat and mouth cancers.

Every extra serving of processed food increases the risk of head and neck cancers by 23 percent, and esophageal cancer by 24 percent, say researchers from Bristol University.

They tracked the health and diet of more than 140,000 people for 14 years.

Their findings echo earlier research that linked processed foods to more than 34 types of cancer.
