Plaque and scar tissue do not appear immediately - I don't think the research cited meant to imply that it did. But the havoc from unhealthful foods is immediate and lingers.
If people only ate fatty, processed foods once in a while, the body would have time to focus on repairing. Unfortunately, most of us in the western world eat like this quite often. It's hard to rebuild while simultaneously swinging a sledgehammer.
