Eating too much highly processed food, such as pizza, burgers, and salty snacks, may increase the risk of cognitive decline in older adults, according to scientists in Brazil. The study, conducted at the University of São Paulo, involved over 10,000 people aged 35 to 74 in six Brazilian cities. Participants who consumed more than 20% of their daily calories from highly processed foods experienced faster cognitive decline. The study aligns with public health advice to reduce the consumption of highly processed foods due to potential links to cognitive decline.
