Excess Fructose Spills Over To The Liver And Colonic Microbiota

Fructose, a sugar found in fruit, is processed mainly in the small intestine, not in the liver as had previously been suspected, Princeton University researchers report. Sugary drinks and processed high-sugar foods overwhelm the small intestine and spill into the liver for processing. Additionally, the study found that the ability of the small intestine to […]

Link Between Cancer Tumour Growth And Sugar Clarified

The relationship between sugar and cancer has been made clearer by new research from Belgian scientists. The nine-year joint research project, undertaken by Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, and the Flanders Institute for Biotechnology, has led to a new understanding of how the Warburg effect, a phenomenon in which cancer cells rapidly break down […]

Diet Soda Drinking Associated With Higher Dementia & Stroke Risk

A pair of new research studies are adding to the growing body of evidence that sugary soda drinks pose a health risk. The first study discloses that excess sugar, particularly the added fructose in sugary drinks, might damage your brain. Researchers looked at data from the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) and found that people who […]

Sugar And Alzheimer’s Disease Molecular Link Revealed

A molecular “tipping point” that could explain sugar’s ties to Alzheimer’s disease has been identified by a group of U.K. researchers. The team has demonstrated that excess glucose damages a vital enzyme involved with inflammation response to the early stages of Alzheimer’s. It is already known that abnormally high blood sugar levels, or hyperglycaemia, is […]
