10 Food That Might Be Speeding Up Your Aging Process

10. Corn-based Food

Foods made from corn, such as corn cereals and corn chips, have a significant effect on blood sugar levels, which can lead to an increase in the body’s AGEs and speed aging. According to research, the fructose in high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) results in 10 times more AGE production in the body than glucose. This means that the HFCS you ingest every day in sweetened beverages and the majority of other processed foods (even salad dressings and ketchup) causes your body to age more quickly. Another significant problem with corn foods and corn oils is the excessive amount of omega-6 fatty acids they provide to your diet. This imbalance between omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids results in inflammation and oxidation in your body.
