3. High AGE Foods

AGE refers to “advanced glycation end products”. The glycogen compounds are naturally found throughout the body and in certain foods. However, AGE foods cause elevated glucose levels. A study performed by the National Institute on Aging found that seniors diagnosed with Alzheimer’s had increased glucose levels in their brains due to an inability to metabolize the substance. Unlike other cells in the body, glucose doesn’t need insulin to invade the brain or affect neurons. The excessive levels of glucose are thought to cause inflammation and cell damage.

  1. Very good info. I did stop consuming most if that over twenty years ago. The last time I drank pop or soft drinks of any kind was in 1985 when nobody did address this issues in public.

    Any Colorado brewery is better and healthy that ANY soft drink.

  2. Wow, good to know. I eat entirely to much sugar, love candy, and something sweet after my meal. As for pastas and whole grain which include bread, cereals and potatoes, guilty as charged. I need to restructure my diet or I will be like my great grandmother and grandfather who had dementia.
