Ultra-processed or processed, it does not (nor should it) require 100s of epidemiologists, biostatisticians, and post-doctoral researchers to come to the conclusion that further studies are needed to better understand the relative effect of the various dimensions of processing (nutritional composition, food additives, contact materials, and neoformed contaminants.) Seriously? People are fed up, and providers with integrity have had enough. Snatching wellness from the already marginalized with highly available "highly-processed foods/foodstuffs" readily found in the places like Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, is just another source of removing health and wellness from those who need it most.
