Will the confusion about sugars never end? A recent study reconfirms the metabolic problems caused by too much fructose, but public opinion continues to blame High Fructose Corn Sweeteners (HFCS) as the new dietary evil. HFCS isn’t really high in fructose. It has about the same amount of fructose as common table sugar. Both are about half fructose and half glucose, and both cause metabolic problems when you eat too much of them. So go easy on the sugars!
Here’s what the New York Times has to say about the study.
