Telomere length may help in determining the lifetime of a person.
There are several reasons why you should stop consume juices: cancer, tooth decay and even water pollution. Now you can add to the list and accelerated cell aging, at least if you judge by the results of the research, published in the American Journal of Public Health.
Scientists studied DNA samples of cells with 5309 participants. They found that regular consumption of juices shortened telomeres white blood cells. Enough to drink about 600ml of juice per day to look 4.6 years older.
Telomeres are the protective caps at the end of chromosomes and aging naturally they begin to shorten.
Aging cells is a common cause of other health problems. Previous studies have shown that telomere length may help in determining the lifetime of a person.
Scientists were surprised that the consumption of juices and sodas shortened telomeres regardless of the person’s body weight and health. In fact, excessive sugar consumption and aging are closely related. Statistical studies have shown that a large number of people under the age of 70 years suffer from prediabetes, a condition that in many cases leads to diabetes type 2.
