I have heard many old people advising the young generation to keep away from excess sugar during the young age itself. That is fine. So, that then later on in life, they do not have to face such ''sweet'' problems. But how true is it that excessive sugar intake can slow down the digestion process. I guess being a doctor you can answer this question. I happened to read this in a certain newspaper - now I forgot if it was online or a print format. But I clearly remember this. Can you please throw some light on this?
