Eating lots of sugar with resulting high blood sugar levels can maker your entire body age faster. Blood glucose reacts with proteins to create cross-linked proteins called AGEs (advanced glycosylation end products) that generate free radicals and are as dangerous to the brain as damage from oxygen free radicals. (Carper, Jean. Your Miracle Brain, p 135NY: HarperCollins Publishers, 2000.)

White sugar is an almost chemically pure substance that is rapidly absorbed and has a powerful effect on body chemistry. It contributes only calories and no nutrients. With no lasting satiety value it is conducive to consuming far more calories than desirable. (Dychtwald, Ken, PhD., ed. Wellness and Health Promotion for the Elderly. p 182. MD: Aspen Publication, 1986.)
