So Put Down That Hot Dog - 'Ultra-Processed' Foods Linked To Early Death

Bad news for lovers of hot dogs, breakfast cereals, and other so-called 'ultra-processed' foods - believe it or not, they're unhealthy. 

Two recent studies found that such foods can even be fatal, with a 62 percent increased risk of premature death among people whose diet includes large amounts of ultra-processed foods.

Another study found that people who chow down on processed foods heavy in sugar, salt, and preservatives consume about 500 extra calories a day vs. people who eat fresh meats and vegetables.
