A study conducted at the University of São Paulo in Brazil suggests that a diet high in highly processed foods may be associated with an increased risk of cognitive decline in older adults. The research involved over 10,000 participants aged 35 to 74 in six Brazilian cities. Those who derived more than 20% of their daily calories from highly processed foods exhibited a faster rate of cognitive decline. The findings reinforce existing public health recommendations urging individuals to limit the intake of highly processed foods due to potential implications for cognitive health.
