Why Does Diabetes Increase The Likelihood Of Heart Disease?

Glycation and Heart Disease

"Glycation is the process of bonding of proteins and lipids with sugar molecules, including glucose and fructose. This process is not enzyme controlled and is very detrimental to the human body. Latest studies have confirmed that fructose shows ten times the glycation activity of glucose......... Thus, fructose is not as harmless as scientists previously thought."

This seems to suggest that eating a lot of fruit is not such a good idea. I eat about four fruit exchanges per day, maybe I should cut back to only one fruit exchange each day. What do you think about this article?
