Study Links HFCS to Obesity

I’m sure you’ve heard it before, if not via Life Is Fare, most certainly in the news: High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) leads to obesity.

In this study highlighted in The Science Daily, researchers found that “when fructose is present as children’s fat cells mature, it makes more of these cells mature into fat cells in belly fat and less able to respond to insulin in both belly fat and fat located below the skin.” Obesity, especially in the abdominal region, raises the risk for heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. It’s no surprise that we’re seeing the first generation with a shorter life expectancy than its parents.
