Nuances in the Metabolic Effects of Sugar

Current scientific evidence suggest that the consumption of refined crystalline fructose has detrimental health effects. In particular, the metabolic effects of fructose overfeeding have been shown to result in similar physiological changes as alcohol overfeeding. In this regard, fructose overconsumption … Continue reading
