"Wheat causes blood sugar disruption, glycation of your cells, increases aging, weight gain, and boosts your risk for diabetes.
Before I tell you why wheat can actually speed up the aging process, let's clarify some simple biochemistry...
This deals with glycation in your body, and substances called Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). These nasty little compounds speed up the aging process, including damage over time to your organs, your joints, and of course, wrinkled skin.
So what is one of the biggest factors that increase production of AGEs inside your body? This may surprise you, but high blood sugar levels over time dramatically increase age-accelerating AGEs in your body.
This is why type 2 diabetics many times appear to not have aged well and look older than their real age. But this age-increasing effect is not limited to diabetics.
So, let's get back to how "whole wheat" relates to this...
Here is a little-known fact that's often covered up by the massive marketing campaigns by giant food companies that want you to believe that "whole wheat" is healthy for you...
...wheat contains a very unusual type of carbohydrate (not found in other foods) called Amylopectin-A, which has been found in some tests to spike your blood sugar higher than even pure table sugar.
In fact, amylopectin-A (from wheat) raises your blood sugar more than almost any other carbohydrate source on earth, based on blood sugar response testing that's documented in studies.
This means wheat-based foods such as breads, bagels, cereals, muffins, and other baked goods often cause much higher blood sugar levels, than most other carbohydrate sources." - Mike Geary, 'The Nutrition Watchdog", Certified Nutrition Specialist and author
