Repercussions of the consumption of snacks and soft drinks

Goal

Evaluate the consumption of ultra-processed foods and the consequences that these products have on the health of individuals

Results

Studies on eating snacks and skipping meals are challenging and inconclusive, with many studies showing a relationship between the consumption of snacks and the increase in pathologies. Finally Even though these factors may be associated with inadequate food choices in some populations, the motivation for snacks, as well as the impact of snacks on health, are subject to considerable inter-individual variation, which merits further investigation.
