A new study found that people who eat ultra-processed foods are more likely to get cancer. French researchers found a correlation between cancer and having a diet rich in heavily processed foods such as chicken nuggets, cakes, sodas, mass-produced bread, potato chips, chocolate bars, meatballs, instant noodles, frozen meals, and processed meat. Basically, everything yummy will give you cancer.

On Wednesday, a thorough and worrying new study was published in the British Medical Journal. A team of researchers from the Universite Sorbonne in Paris, France, examined the medical records and eating habits of 105,000 adults. The study identified 3,300 types of foods that the people in the study ate.
