Advanced Glycation End Products (AGE's) What Are They?
AGE's happen when foods are heated aggressively such as oils with a low smoke point, meats, and vegetables. It essentially turns your food into a carcinogen. Anything over 117 degrees will begin to destroy the enzymes within the food rendering it "dead food." As tasty as charred meats are, lessen your consumption to limit carcinogens and free radicals. This also applies to fats, oils, processed meats, and cheese.
