Diet has always been considered a major culprit. But this big study, with 20,239 people tracked over five years, let the researchers slice and dice eating habits much more finely. They came up with five eating styles:

— Southern: fried chicken and fish, lunch meat, gizzards and other organ meats, sweet tea and other sugar-sweetened drinks

— Convenience: Mexican and Chinese food, burgers, pizza, pasta

— Plant-based: fruits, vegetables, juice, cereal, fish, poultry, yogurt, nuts, whole-grain bread

— Sweets: added fats, bread, chocolate, dessert, sweet breakfast food

— Alcohol: beer, wine, liquor, green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds, coffee
