Relationship Between #Ultraprocessed Food Intake and #Cardiovascular Health Among U.S. Adolescents: Results From the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2007–2018

Studies of the association between ultraprocessed foods (UPF) and cardiovascular disease risk factors have been mainly focused on the adult population. This study examined the association between usual percentage of calories (%kcal) from UPF and the American Heart Association's seven cardiovascular health (CVH) metrics among U.S. adolescents aged 12–19 years. MethodsWe used data from the …

Ultra-processed #foods consumption and #diet quality of European children, adolescents and adults: results from the I.Family study

Energy intake from Ultra Processed Foods (UPFs) represents almost half of the daily energy intake within our study population, and this trend decrease progressively with age with no differences by cultural and socio-economic status.•Considering the quintiles of the dietary share of UPFs, energy intake increases across the quintiles, and diet quality is significantly lower in …

Investigating Molecular Mechanisms of Immunotoxicity and the Utility of #ToxCast for Immunotoxicity Screening of Chemicals Added to #Food

The development of high-throughput screening methodologies may decrease the need for laboratory animals for toxicity testing. Here, we investigate the potential of assessing immunotoxicity with high-throughput screening data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ToxCast program. As case studies, we analyzed the most common chemicals added to food as well as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances …

Ultra-processed #food consumption and the risk of short telomeres in an elderly population of the Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra (SUN) Project

Telomere length (TL) is a marker of biological age that may be affected by dietary factors through oxidation and inflammation mechanisms. In addition, ultra-processed food (UPF) consumption has increased worldwide and it has been associated with the risk of developing several diseases.. ..This is a cross-sectional study of 886 participants (645 men and 241 women) …
