Sugar Is Sticky! Exploring the damaging effects of sugar and advanced glycated end- products on our health (1 Nutrition CEU)

Total Credits: 1



Over the past 3 decades there has been a rapid rise in chronic inflammatory and degenerative disorders. Conditions such as Type II diabetes, coronary vascular disease, obesity, Alzheimers and neurodegenerative disease, arthritis, cancers and numerous other disorders all share chronic inflammation in common.. There is emerging evidence that the pathogenesis of these metabolic diseases is associated with the formation of Advanced Glycated End-products (AGEs), which can be ingested via high-temperature processed foods and also endogenously by high sugar intake. We will discuss how to test for AGEs and the dietary and life-style changes associated with improving and preventing AGEs formation.
