What is common to every organ of the body? They all depend on a complex network of blood vessels and tiny capillaries to perform their function. If those blood vessels get damaged or clogged up then the organ stops doing what it is meant to.Continue reading
Some recent science helps us better understand why consuming a lot of sugar (50:50 fructose+glucose) is not good for us.
While glucose is able to be absorbed directly by nearly all body tissue, fructose needs to be first converted and the highlighted study shows that fructose is processed by the small-intestines and converted into glucose. However, the small-intestines are adapted to only receive small doses of fructose and any excess is shunted to the liver where it is largely converted to fat.
While further experiments need to be conducted, it appears that the human small-intestine may max out with less than 5 grams of fructose.
