The Doctors welcome surgical breast specialist Dr. Kristi Funk to discuss a new study that found the more processed a food is the higher the risk of it causing cancer.
In addition to processed foods often being filled with chemicals, Dr. Funk explains that a processed food usually strips away everything that is nutritious and valuable and what is left is rarely good for you. She encourages her patients to consume the “whole food” when possible.
The study found that a 10 percent increase in ultra-processed foods in a person’s diet was correlated with a 12 percent higher risk of cancer. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork recommends that if you are going to eat processed foods to stick with items that are “minimally processed” and contain ingredients you can pronounce and have heard of.
Some of the highly-processed foods that you should be aware of include:
- Processed meat
- Packaged snacks and sweets
- Instant soups and noodles
- Frozen meals
- Packaged bread
- Energy drinks
- Soda and sweet beverages
Dr. Funk feels the foods with the longest shelf life, items that can last weeks to months could pose more a risk to your health.
