Junk Food, Phosphates & Premature Aging

Research showing the connection between junk food consumption and premature death is hardly revolutionary, but the latest study coming out of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine is giving more specifics on how this occurs. The study by M. Shawkat Razzaque, M.D., Ph.D., was published recently in the FASEB Journal. The results show that by adding phosphates to things like soda pop have greatly damage the needed balance of phosphates in the body, creating a state of toxicity, which leads to premature aging and poorer health. “Humans need a healthy diet and keeping the balance of phosphate in the diet may be important for a healthy life and longevity,” said Razzaque. “Avoid phosphate toxicity and enjoy a healthy life.” “Soda is the caffeine delivery vehicle of choice for millions of people worldwide, but comes with phosphorous as a passenger” added Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of the FASEB Journal. “This research suggests that our phosphorous balance influences the aging process, so don’t tip it.”
