How High Fructose Corn Syrup Causes Obesity
I have repeatedly stated that high fructose corn syrup should be banned from the food supply. A new study confirms the diabolical nature of this substance to induce leptin resistance1 and consequent obesity – and future heart disease and diabetes. The study found that fructose consumption raised triglycerides in the blood, even though obesity and weight problems had not yet set in. This problem blocks leptin from getting into your brain, setting the stage for the first changes that lead to obesity. Then, when overeating occurred, the prior fructose consumption led directly to a handicapped metabolism and obesity.
