How many hot dogs have we eaten in our lifetime? These data, which are difficult to determine, are certainly of interest to the reader now. And a scientific investigation confirms this He loses every sausage a person eats 36 minutes of life.
Health researchers at the University of Michigan have found that eating hot dogs can take this time out of a person’s life. The study, published in the journal Nature Food, Researchers analyzed 5,853 foods in the American diet and measured their impact on healthy life minutes gained or lost.
The team developed an index that does the computation Net beneficial or harmful health burden in minutes of healthy living associated with a portion of food. It is based on a study called global burden of disease, which measures morbidity associated with a person’s dietary choices.
One of the foods the researchers measured was a sausage, Because this food is also well known in the United States. Resulting in 61g of processed meat A waste of 27 minutes of healthy living. When ingredients such as sodium and unsaturated fatty acids were included, the final value 36 minutes wasted.
They explained the rationale for the study: “Previous studies looking at healthy or sustainable diets have often reduced their findings to discussing plant-based versus animal-based foods, stigmatizing the latter as the least nutritious and sustainable.”
The report was overseen by environmental health expert Olivier Juliette, and the report included vegetables, meat, processed foods and sugary drinks. The goal was simple: Determine how eating different foods affects you.
Among the discoveries he concluded that a fried chicken wing, It “costs” 3.3 minutes of healthy living. Instead, you can face and gain life time by incorporating foods like Peanuts and salmon. Both, according to the study, give 26 and 16 minutes of healthy living, respectively.
The team of researchers made several recommendations: They suggested replacing 10% of your daily calories come from beef, processed meats from a mix of fruits, legumes, nuts, select seafood, and vegetables. This may lead to an additional 48 minutes of healthy living.
“Although we found that plant-based foods generally perform better, there are significant differences in plant and animal foods that must be recognized before such generalized conclusions can be justified,” the study authors added.
67% of the calories that American children and teens eat per day come from ultra-processed products And only 23% come from foods with little or no processing.
This is the main conclusion of study Conducted by the Friedman School (Boston, MA) that analyzed the diet and calorie intake of 33,795 US children ages 2 to 19 between 1999 and 2018.
The point of study, which was published this Tuesday in Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), era Determining trends in highly processed eating and consumption among a younger population in the United States.
Ultra-processed foods are ready-to-eat products that are often high in added sugar, salt, and carbohydrates, low in fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals, and usually contain hydrogenated oils and flavor enhancers.
The most consumed are packaged sandwiches, sweets, sugary breakfast cereals, french fries, fast food hamburgers and some cold meats such as mortadella or salami, and their excess consumption is related to diseases such as diabetes, obesity and some types of cancer.
The study shows that The consumption of calories from ultra-processed products among American children decreased from 61% in 1999 to 67% in 2018, while calories from unprocessed or minimally processed foods decreased from 28.8% to 23%.
In Argentina, the average consumption of Ultra Porciados (UP) is 185 kilograms per capita per year. Leadership in the global ranking in the consumption of soft drinks 131 liters per capita.
