Bad to the bone: Ultra-processed food damages bone development
Our study provides the first comprehensive analysis for how ultra-processed food foods impact skeletal development. We surveyed lab rodents whose skeletons were in the post embryonic stages of growth. The rodents who were subjected to ultra-processed foods were shown to suffer from growth retardation and a direct impact on their bone strength in ways that were atypical for rodents of that age who would typically be healthy. Under histological examination, the researchers detected high levels of cartilage buildup in the rodents’ growth plates, the “engine” of bone growth. Additional molecular studies of the rodents revealed that the RNA profiles of the cartilage cells subjected to the junk food reflected mechanisms that directly impact on normal bone development.
