Doctor in the House: Is Ultra Processed Food Ultra Bad For You?

Dr George Lee, Consultant Urologist; Assoc Prof Dr Wong Jyh Eiin, Head of Nutrition Science Programme, Faculty of Health Sciences, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM)

Description: It tastes good and it’s often affordable. Ultra-processed food is everywhere and most of us consume some form of it every day. But can it really be that bad for our health if we’ve been eating it for years? Consultant urologist Dr George Lee is joined by nutritionist Dr Wong Jyh Eiin from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia to unpack what exactly is UPF and how we can all be more mindful of what we eat.
