Ultraprocessed food consumption, genetic predisposition, and the risk of gout: the UK Biobank study

Gout is highly likely to affect individuals who preferred consuming ultra-processed foods.

This study focused on the consumption of ultra-processed foods in relation to the subsequent development of gout. Researchers recruited 181,559 men and women from the UK Biobank Cohort and followed their diets and health throughout the duration of the study.
