MediNewsDigest: Folks, research shows that fructose can bring some serious health problems. This work published by the American Association for Cancer Research is just one more study showing possible problems with fructose. Note that this article does not specifically target High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). To get some background about this, see the interesting Wikipedia entry on HFCS. Issues of obesity and liver disease are still debated. The Corn Refiners Association is naturally putting up a fight in their”sweet surprise” blog.
The Mayo Clinic is a good source of balanced medical opinions regarding high fructose syrup. It essentially tells us that “moderation is important” . We could have guessed with such a raging debate going on…… But the cancer threat seems a new concern, that should get our attention.
