Those eating the most processed foods were also found to be more likely to have a family history of heart disease and diabetes.

I'm trying to figure out what the family history of heart disease and diabetes really has to do with the processed food/telomere findings.

It's no surprise that people who have heart disease and diabetes eat more processed foods, and that those eating habits may have been ingrained from their youth, learned from their family's eating habits.

Or is that information included because it's just one more brick in the wall? "You eat a lot of processed foods, you'll not only age more quickly, you'll be more likely to carry on the family's poor health history."
