    Anti-Peat Is Peat wrong on fructose?

    Fructose consumed with glucose in small amounts from raw honey seem to be fine. However, excessive fructose consumption appears to be extremely negative. A very recent study "Fructose stimulated de novo lipogenesis is promoted by inflammation" shows that fructose causes inflammation and liver...

    Fructose Is NOT Metabolized By The Liver But The Small Intestines

    This should give food for thought to people (e.g. Lustig)that say fructose is almost exactly metabolized like alcohol and hence is as toxic as alcohol. Most fructose doesn't even reach the liver ,says this study. Mouse study reveals what happens in the gut after too much fructose Researchers...

    Fructose: Back To The Future?

    Sugars have emerged as the dominant nutrient of concern. Attention has focused squarely on the fructose moiety as the main bad actor in sugars due to its unique set of biochemical, metabolic, and endocrine responses. Fructose is increasingly being regarded as the principal driver of obesity...

    Relation Of Total Sugars, Fructose And Sucrose With Incident Type 2 Diabetes

    BACKGROUND: Sugar-sweetened beverages are associated with type 2 diabetes. To assess whether this association holds for the fructose-containing sugars they contain, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies. INTERPRETATION: Current evidence does not allow...

    Chronic Fructose Substitution For Glucose Or Sucrose In Food Or Beverages Has Little Effect On Fasti

    Conclusions: The evidence suggests that the substitution of fructose for glucose or sucrose in food or beverages may be of benefit to individuals, particularly those with impaired glucose tolerance or type 2 diabetes. However, additional high-quality studies in these populations are required...

    Fructose And Sucrose Intake Increase Exogenous Carbohydrate Oxidation During Exercise

    Fructose and Sucrose Intake Increase Exogenous Carbohydrate Oxidation during Exercise Abstract Peak exogenous carbohydrate oxidation rates typically reach ~1 g·min−1 during exercise when ample glucose or glucose polymers are ingested. Fructose co-ingestion has been shown to further increase...

    Fructose Is The Only Sugar Associated With Body Weight And Bone Health (in Infants)

    Another study suggesting fructose is probably not the villain we are led to believe it is, at least in infants. Fructose in Breast Milk Is Positively Associated with Infant Body Composition at 6 Months of Age "...Dietary sugars have been shown to promote excess adiposity among children and...

    Glucose Deprivation In The Brain Is A Causative Factor In Alzheimer's Dieases (AD)

    As the study says, whether lower glucose levels in the brain were the consequence or cause of AD was considered unknown until recently. This is one of the studies that established a causal link between lower blood glucose levels in the brain and the development AD. I wonder if we are going to...
