Study: Record 60% Of Foods Consumed In The US Contain Additives

  • Researchers at the University of North Carolina found 60% of food and drink items purchased at grocery stores by Americans are now processed.
  • This is up 10 percent from 2001, despite big public health campaigns warning against obesity and increased awareness about fitness and diets.
  • The researchers found that frozen entrees, appetizers, pizza and carbonated drinks were the worst offenders in terms of the volume of additives they contained.
