Must read: The Sugar Fix


A very interesting book...

Just finished reading this book and would highly recommend it to anyone - whether you suffer from Fructose Malabsorption or not. It explores the evidence that not only does fructose, specifically man made high fructose corn syrup and other artificial sweeteners, make us fat but it is also making us sick...
The book links a diet high in fructose with high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, joint pain, digestive trouble, tooth decay, gout and even possibly speeding up the ageing process. The underlying factor in this seems to be that over consumption of fructose can cause the body to produce high levels of uric acid.
The book also provides a detailed plan for reducing dietary fructose intake. A must read for anyone interested in the effects of sugar on the body.
