In the experiment, the scientists of USA have proved that sugar in large quantities markedly reduces life expectancy. Until that information was confirmed at the round worms, but experts believe the information is applicable to humans.

In the experiment, the scientists called worms have a mutation that increases the life span of animals. Next, one group of hearts received their usual food, and rest – a diet rich in sugars. In the second case, the effect of genetic mutations quickly eroding. Moreover, the second group of worms have lived for 20% less than the first.

Scientists are trying to explain the phenomenon. The fact that the body of most animals have cells that can produce glucose from other compounds. That is why an overabundance of sugars is harmful to health. Glucose and other fast carbohydrates should not exceed 10-20% of the caloric content of the total ration.
