Overweight teens who eat a lot of sugar show faster signs of aging
Overweight teens who eat a lot of sugar show faster signs of aging (March 21, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Georgia - According to a report published in AHA's Epidemiology & Prevention/Nutrition, Physical Activity & Metabolism Scientific Session, overweight teens who eat a lot of salt show faster signs of aging. Researchers studied nearly 800 adolescents, aged 14-18, dividing participants into two groups: high sodium intake and low sodium intake. Researchers then measured participants telomere length--chromosomes associated with aging. Results showed that overweight and obese teens with high sodium intake had significantly shorter telomere lengths than normal weight teens with high sodium intake.
