Why fast foods cause heart attacks?
Excessive consumption of phosphate is damaging to health due to which food products containing its additives should be labelled, researchers have recommended.
Eberhard Ritz and his co-authors selectively reviewed the literature on the subject, which documents the fact that excessive phosphate consumption elevates mortality in patients with renal disease.
Recent studies have also shown that phosphate apparently damages blood vessels and induces aging processes. Free phosphate, the type found in food additives, is entirely reabsorbed in the gastrointestinal tract.
People with renal disease have been found to have a markedly elevated serum phosphate concentration.
