Could processed foods raise the risk of autoimmune diseases?



 IF you are already struggling with your New Year's resolution to eat healthier, a study published in the journal Autoimmunity Reviews may help you get back on the ladder; researchers suggest that eating processed foods may weaken the intestines in a way that raises the risk for autoimmune diseases, such as type 1 diabetes, celiac disease and multiple sclerosis.

Researchers identified at least seven food additives that weakened the intestine's immune response to toxins, which could lead to autoimmune diseases.
After a hard day at work, it is tempting to reach for foods that are quick and easy to prepare. For many of us, this means turning to processed foods, such as microwave meals, which are usually high in fat, salt, sugar and other additives.
