Besides this study in USA, another study in Japan also revealed that cutting sugar consumption to zero will make a person younger by ten years.

Cutting sugar from kids’ diets can improve their health in just 10 days — without cutting calories: study

American kids consume an insane amount of sugar – often double or triple the federal recommended dietary guidelines — and these empty calories are often blamed for everything from obesity to hyperactivity in the schools. What happens when we take it away?

Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco and Touro University decided to find out by recruiting 43 volunteers, ages 9 to 18, and putting them on low-sugar diets and measuring all kinds of things about how their bodies changed as a result. All of the study participants — 27 of whom identified as Latino and 16 as African-American — were obese and had at least one other metabolic health issue, such as high blood pressure or a marker of fatty liver.

The study participants underwent extensive testing that included everything from basic blood pressure measures and cholesterol counts to oral glucose tolerance tests and sophisticated bone density scans.
