Does Sugar Decrease Your Health?
Yes! Because of Advanced Glycation End-Products
The more sugar you eat, the more it coats the surface of cell membranes, causing life-changing damage. One of the main issues with sugar consumption is a process called glycation. The sugar creates cross links between cellular parts (usually proteins) that are normally mobile. Unfortunately, all cellular activity is impaired when this occurs. Moreover, cross-linking prevents white blood cells and other cells from getting to the location they are trying to go, thus disrupting chemical messages from being transmitted. As you can imagine, this creates impaired function throughout the body.
