This Common Food Ingredient Is As Addictive as Cocaine?
The Sugar Fix: The High-Fructose Fallout That Is
Making You Fat and Sick by Richard J Johnson
“If you give animals fructose, they develop diabetes, hypertension, obesity,
and fatty liver. And in most of these conditions, if we lower uric acid, we can
prevent many of these conditions, [although] not completely.
So lowering uric acid seems to benefit some of the mechanisms by which fructose causes disease.
So a very important point is that if you take two animals and you feed one fructose and feed the other one the exact same number of calories but give it as dextrose or glucose, its only the fructose-fed animal that will develop obesity, insulin resistance, fatty liver, and high triglycerides, signs of inflammation, vascular disease, and high blood pressure.”
