Junk food linked to age-marker in chromosomes: study

People who eat a lot of industrially processed junk food are more likely to exhibit a change in their chromosomes linked to ageing

Three or more servings of so-called "ultra-processed food" per day doubled the odds that strands of DNA and proteins called telomeres, found on the end of chromosomes, would be shorter compared to people who rarely consumed such foods

Compared to the group who ate the fewest ultra-processed foods, the other three showed an increased likelihood—29, 40 and 82 percent, respectively—of having shortened telomeres.
