Alimentation ultra transformée : péril dans l’assiette !
Les aliments ultra transformés constituent désormais plus de la moitié de l’offre alimentaire en occident. La recherche en épidémiologie nutritionnelle montre que cette transformation à l’extrême de notre alimentation est à l’origine de l’épidémie de surpoids et d’obésité. Une porte grande ouverte aux maladies chroniques, tel le diabète, au cancer et même à la dépression. Rencontre avec deux chercheurs spécialistes des aliments ultra transformés, test d’impact sur la glycémie et témoignage sur la difficulté d’échapper à ces produits ultra-transformés.

Ultra-processed foods now make up more than half of the Western food supply. Research in nutritional epidemiology shows that this extreme transformation of our diet is at the root of the overweight and obesity epidemic. A door that is wide open to chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer and even depression. We meet two researchers specialising in ultra-processed foods, test their impact on blood sugar levels and talk about how difficult it is to escape these ultra-processed products

I learned a useful phrase from this program, 'empty calories.' Apparently our European friends eat no more sensibly than we Americans do. Me, I just finished a lunch of sardines, half a baked sweet potato, 6 whole grain crackers and an apple. Approximately 521 calories, not empty, I hope. Much more importantly, for the purposes of LLORG, at any rate, my understanding of spoken French continues to improve, thanks to programs like this.
