A large new study from the French National Institute for Health, analyzing over 470,000 participants, found that people who consume (on average) food with lower nutritional quality (junk food) were at significantly higher risk for cancer overall. Specifically, eating junk food was associated with a higher risk of colorectal, digestive tract and stomach cancer—and lung cancer in men and liver and postmenopausal breast cancer in women.
