Sugar: Live Longer if You Restrict Your Sweets, Study Finds

Posted Dec 18 2008 7:34pm

Note from Connie: Get ready to hear about a mind-boggling study,whichReuters writes aboutin an article entitled, "Life can be sweeter if you cut out the sugar." (Sounds like what I say all the time!)

Anyhow, German researchers found that by restricting glucose to worms, some of them lived 25 percent longer! Jennifer Moore brings you further information.

Researchers at the University of Jena in Germany and the German Institute of Human Nutrition, headed by endocrinologist Michael Ristow, blocked worms' ability to process glucose.

As a result, the study in Cell Metabolism pointed out, their bodies produced more free radicals but then built up defenses against these harmful molecules.
