Western food is one of the world’s fastest-growing food products.
It’s made up almost half of all processed foods in the US, and is often cited as the country’s answer to the health problems associated with processed foods, like gluten, processed sugar, and added sugar.
While some studies have suggested Western food may not be good for us, a new study from the American Heart Association finds Western foods may be worse for you.
“There is strong evidence that Western foods increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, all of which are linked to a lower quality of life,” the researchers write in the study.
“In addition, Western foods can also contribute to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and obesity-related cancers.”
According to the study, Western food can cause many of the same health problems as processed foods.
It can contain more fat, sugar, salt, and sodium, and it can contain higher levels of processed chemicals like trans fats.
The study also finds that the Western diet may be linked to higher rates of hypertension, and other heart disease.
The American Heart Associations new report notes that Americans tend to consume more Western foods because of the higher cost of those foods compared to other foods.
This can lead to people eating more of these foods in general, the report says.
The new report also found that a lack of exercise and healthful living may be tied to an increased risk of cancer, heart disease and stroke.
Researchers also found Western foods are linked with higher rates, on average, of depression, anxiety, and eating disorders, the study says.
In addition, the American Cancer Society estimates that up to 60% of the US population is overweight or obese.
Dr. David Ludwig, a cardiologist at the University of Pittsburgh, says that a Western diet has been linked to eating disorders.
He says that the American diet is unhealthy and that we have been told to cut back on things like salt, sugar and saturated fats.
“So, to me, the evidence that there are links between Western diets and these diseases is really compelling,” Ludwig says.
Ludwig said that it’s important to remember that Western food doesn’t necessarily mean bad.
He also said that the best thing to do is to cut out Western food completely.
The study also notes that people who have diabetes, hypertension, heart failure, and high cholesterol all have more Western food consumption compared to those who don’t.
According to Dr. Michael Pollan, director of the nutrition program at the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health, it’s difficult to predict the health effects of Western food because of so many factors, including how we eat, how we’re raised, and how we grow up.
“It’s really difficult to tell from a Western standpoint what is good for you and what is bad,” Pollan says.
