Перевод на английский 3.2. Glycation aging. AGEs
Good afternoon, friends. Let's continue with the so-called succharification of our body. In cosmetology has been even introduced a term of sugar face. And in medicine has been introduced the diabetes. Now, you say, the last joys of life are again being taken away from us. How we can be happy without enjoying the sweets? Should we stop smoking and drinking also? But what we live for and take care of our health then? That’s right, science is there to spoil our appetite and to kill any desire to enjoy the best things in life. But when a woman has an ugly, dark grey, sagging, sugary face, when you suffer from a constant feeling of hunger and thirst, numbness of limbs, frequent infections, blurred vision due to diabetes, these best things in life become much less, isn’t it? As Heinrich Heine rightly noted, "The only beauty I know is health." With your permission we continue.
The process of glycation leads to the formation of toxic (from the Greek toxikon - poison) substances known under the general name - AGEs - Advanced Glycation Endproducts. These substances accumulate with age and reduce proliferation of cells [#proliferation
- the process of cell division, through which tissue proliferation takes place], which accelerates their aging and death. It is believed that glycation is an irreversible process, [#irreversible
process is a process that takes place only in one direction, after which the system cannot return to its original state without the occurrence of residual changes] leading to the hardening of the connective tissue [#connective
tissue is the main link between all tissues and is up to 50% of the mass of the human body]. Let's sum up. As a result of glycation, very dangerous substances are formed which reduce the cell's ability to divide. They cannot be excreted from the body, just as the body cannot convert them into neutral substances. Thus poisonous substances, the so-called AGEs, accumulates in our body over the years more and more, while useful, life-giving cells and substances become less. Well, someone has health and beauty, and someone has a sugar problem.
