The State Fair of Texas is famous for its array of fried foods. You can find anything from fried oreo cookies, to fried bananas, fried grilled cheese, and fried butter. Research has found that fried food contains chemicals called advanced glycation end products, or AGE’s. AGE’s advance inflammation and cell aging and are responsible for the development or worsening of degenerative diseases. Science found that people with high AGE levels were more likely to develop problems with mental process and memory.
