Infant formula full of toxins that cause inflammation and diabetes

Baby and infant formula and foods are full of toxins that could cause inflammation and diabetes later on in life, researchers have discovered

Baby and infant formula and foods are full of toxins that could cause inflammation and diabetes later on in life, researchers have discovered.
Levels of the toxin AGE (advanced glycation end) often double in infants once they move from the breast and start eating commercially-available formulas and foods. The levels are similar to those seen in diabetics, say researchers from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
Formulas that are processed under high heart can contain 100 times more AGEs than human breast milk, say the researchers. AGEs are toxic glucose by-products are found in most processed foods that are heated during their manufacture, and especially in infant formulas.
However, their findings also suggest that adults should avoid processed foods, especially if they already are diabetic or pre-diabetic.
