What you consume on a regular basis may affect how quickly you age.
Here are 5 foods that could be aging you:
2. White bread
White bread may contribute to premature aging… Why? Refined white flour has its beneficial components removed, leaving behind few protective nutrients.
3. Flame-grilled burgers
4. Sugary soft drinks
Consuming 8 oz of soda per day, less than one can, could age you by an extra two years. (This association was not seen with diet soda, non-carbonated sugary drinks, and fruit juice.)
5. Processed deli meats
Eating processed meat, specifically bologna, salami and ham, at least one time per week may decrease telomere length, a marker of how quickly your body may age.
