Here is a very helpful article and infograph from SHAPE magazine that illustrates what really happens to our bodies when you consume sugar, or foods that when broken down by our bodies contain large amounts of simple sugar..
For example, here is what happens to your skin- "byproducts from digested sugar destroy collagen and elastin." Thereby making you look older.
Here is what happens to your joints- "those same byproducts that destroy your skin's collagen also destroy the collagen in your joints, which, over time, increases inflammation and may even cause arthritis."
Which of sugar's effects scares you the most? And why?
