More Sugar News

Don’t jump on the bandwagon to eat sugar, but at least this latest study shows what is helping to stimulate our growing obesity epidemic.

From http://www.medpagetoday.com/PrimaryCare/DietNutrition/36672

In an accompanying editorial, Dr. Jonathan Purnell and Damien Fair of Oregon Health and Science University in Portland, said the findings “support the conceptual framework that when the human brain is exposed to fructose, neurobiological pathways involved in appetite regulation are modulated, thereby promoting increased food intake.”

My concern about the way this is being reported is that it is better to eat glucose than fructose, but that is a marginal difference.  As we know better, sugars are a problem regardless of source.

Always looking to learn,
