A recent medical study found that eating processed or processed foods daily can significantly increase your risk of dementia.

The study, published on the website of the American Academy of Neurology, said that processed foods, such as soft drinks and potato chips, are high in added sugar, fat and salt, and low in protein and fiber.

The researchers followed the eating habits of 72,083 people in the UK over the age of 55 for 10 years, knowing that the study participants did not have dementia at the beginning.

The British newspaper, “The Sun”, reported that by the end of the ten years, 518 people had been diagnosed with dementia, which was called the second largest killer in the United Kingdom in 2021.

The study revealed that “participants who ate more ultra-processed foods daily over 10 years had a greater chance of developing dementia than those who ate less of these foods.” The researchers also found that for every 10 percent increase in daily consumption of ultra-processed foods, the risk of dementia increased by 25 percent.

The researchers estimated that by replacing 10 percent of ultra-processed foods with unprocessed foods, such as fresh fruits, vegetables, legumes and meat, the risk of dementia would be reduced by 19 percent.

The study’s lead author, Dr. Hobig Li of Tianjin Medical University, said small, controllable changes in people’s diet could make a difference in their risk of developing dementia.

“Our research not only found that processed foods are associated with an increased risk of dementia, but that replacing them with healthier options may reduce the risk of developing dementia,” Lee added.

This study is consistent with previous research that has also indicated that an unhealthy diet can lead to cognitive decline.
