The excellent monthly FAB Research newsletter has devoted its August issue to the evils of sugar – especially the evils of fructose. Fructose is to be found, often in the guise of high fructose corn syrup, in the majority of processed foods and virtually all fizzy drinks. Obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, fatty liver disease, gout and cancer are among the illnesses for which it is blamed. New research is even linking sugar with aging via its effect on the gut bacteria.
Other items this month cover the ever growing body of research into the gut bacteria, how it influences our health and how medication influences it.
As always, FAB Research gives you the link to the original article, study or report (I get so cross when reviews fail to do this) along with a short but enlightening overview of their own.
I will say no more. Just log into their newsletter here to discover ‘the bitter truth about sugar’.
