Infant Diabetes Risk Increased By Food Toxins

Researchers have concluded a new study warning parents of small infants of an increased risk of developing diabetes. According to their findings, certain foods contain high levels of toxins that increase the likelihood of the children developing type 2 diabetes later in their lives.

The study was conducted by scientists from the United States and has since been published in the journal Diabetes.

What the researchers discovered was that when certain food toxins called advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) were present in elevated quantities, there was a propensity for developing a wide range of diseases. The list of chronic diseases included diabetes.

AGEs, which are by-products of glucose, are present in a number of modern foods, including baby formula. They are also transmitted to newborns through the blood of the baby's mother.

Scientists warn that AGEs could become so prevalent that they could actually overtake a child's defenses and create health issues down the road. One study concluded that they could become so high at birth that they actually lead to inflammation and insulin resistance later in the child's life.

Another recent study showed how diabetic adults were able to lower the amount of toxins within the body that were responsible for producing inflammation. By greatly reducing the amounts of processed foods as well as foods that were grilled or fried, they were not only able to reverse a level of inflammation, but help with their insulin resistance, as well.

The key to reducing toxic AGE intake seemed to be staying away from foods that were heat processed. This one step seemed to provide the most help for the insulin levels ,as well as the overall health, of diabetics.

Scientists are recommending that cheaper and safer products which are AGE-free should be investigated.
