Do you bake and fry foods at high temperatures?
If so, you may want to reconsider doing this.
Because it causes something called advanced glycation end products, or AGEs, to be formed in the process. They are also called glycotoxins.
These chemicals, formed mainly by sugars and proteins, cause havoc in your body.
They stick to cells almost like velcro, which causes long strings to be created, which ageain can lead to stiff joints as well as wrinkles.
They make blood vessels stiff and reduce bloodflow. They cause damage to kidneys and nerves. They cause diabetes and dementia.
AGEs are found in large concentrations in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. They are also found in high levels in patients with Parkinson’s and Lou Gehrig’s disease.
In tests on mice, researchers linked AGEs to frequency of strokes.
AGEs can also cause your immune system, instead of to protect your body, to attack your nerve cells and thereby cause chronic pain.
They also cause cancer and erectile dysfunction.
The good news: Your kidneys filter them out to a point.
But, research shows that if you take in more than 5,000 to 8,000 AGEs units a day, AGEs build up in your tissues.
One McDonald’s Big Mac has 7,800 AGEs.
A serving of fried chicken nuggets has 7,000 AGEs.
A broiled hot dog had about 10,000 AGEs.
A thin-crust pizza has about 7,000 AGEs.
Just two slices of bacon has about 12,000 AGEs.
We know already that fried food is not particularly healthy. Now we also know that food made at high temperatures is something we should be careful with.
