I started reading about how eating a lot of sugar can end up aging your skin causing inflammation and wrinkles and things of the sort? They call this glycation.. Is this true at all?

You know what else ages your skin? Being alive.

I've been reading the same thing from a couple of authors. According to them it's not only sugars, also high carb diets.

In this documentary they showed something similar:

Would just be the factors associated with higher igf-1 levels (greater cell turn-over), from diets with a decent carb intake. Nothing new/special by any means.

It's certainly true.

Look at people in the US who eat a lot of sugar vs people in societies like KR who eat very little sugar. Americans look really old.

Also look at people with diabetes.
