Scientists have found a link between life expectancy and consumption of sugar.
Experts from University College London found a link between the amount of sugar eaten in childhood, and lifespan.
According to the researchers, sugar consumption in childhood is fraught with sad consequences for health. In addition, excessive consumption of sugar in childhood, life expectancy can be reduced for several years. In the words of Adam Dobson, one of the authors conducted the experiment, what the person eats in childhood determines not only his food preferences in the future, but also may affect health in old age.
“What we’ve eaten in the past, has a very long and significant impact on the organism as a whole. Due to excessive use of certain products, including sugar, the genes reprogrammed, which may lead to the most unexpected consequences,” said the scientist. During the experiment it was possible to establish that even a three-week sugar diet, which includes a huge number of sweets, “preprogrammed” the body for a long time.
