Research published in the British Medical Journal determined ultra-processed foods like chips, cookies and fast food are linked to heart disease and early death.
Dr. John Poothullil said nature doesn't have foods with salt in it.
"We get used to the salt content and that is what drives the desire to eat more, so the taste becomes an inducement for eating," said Poothullil.
He said you get in trouble when you add things to foods nature provided.
"Combination of salt, sugar and fat to make it more palatable than what nature intended and you eat more," said Poothullil.
He said you can get addicted to salt and crave it more and more. Also, don't be distracted when eating and lose track of how much junk you're putting into your body.
