Ultra-Processed food intake and smoking interact in relation with colorectal adenomas

Goal

Examine the association between high UPF intake and colorectal adenomas and to test the interaction with smoking.

Results

High UPF intake was positively associated with adenomas and proximal adenomas. Smoking was associated with adenomas, non-advanced adenomas, advanced adenomas, proximal adenomas, and distal adenomas. High intake of UPFs is strongly and independently associated with colorectal adenomas. There is a strong association between UPF consumption and smoking.
