The Science Is Not Settled

The Nutrition Coalition is a nonprofit advocacy organization working to strengthen national nutrition policy so that it is founded upon a comprehensive body of conclusive science, and where that science is absent, to encourage additional research. Following the research, not the money, to find the truth

Fructose Powers a Vicious Cycle

Researchers have found a hitherto unknown molecular mechanism that is driven by fructose and can lead to cardiac enlargement and heart failure.

High consumption of fructose can lead to uncontrolled growth of cardiomyocytes and heart attack.

In recent decades fructose spread throughout the food market, due to a reputation as being less harmful than glucose. In contrast to glucose, fructose barely increases blood glucose levels and insulin secretion. This avoids frequently recurring insulin spikes after any glucose consumption, which are judged harmful. In addition, fructose is sweeter to the taste.

But there’s a downside: the liver converts fructose very efficiently into fat. People who consume too much high-fructose food can in time become overweight and develop high blood pressure, dyslipidaemia with fatty liver and insulin resistance — symptoms that doctors group together under the name metabolic syndrome

Is Fat Killing You, or Is Sugar? | The New Yorker

Unless you’re a scientist, often the scientific research is so full of jargon that it’s hard to understand, let alone know what’s real and true.

Is Fat Killing You, or Is Sugar?

It’s one of many cautionary tales about assessing dietary data. Everyone wants to be healthy, and most of us like eating, so we’re easily swayed by any new finding, no matter how dubious. Publishers know this all too well and continually ply us with diet and health books of varying degrees of respectability and uplift. The most prominent on the current menu are Sylvia Tara’s “The Secret Life of Fat” (Norton) and “The Case Against Sugar,” by Gary Taubes (Knopf). Both present a range of cutting-edge dietary research, both say that fat is unfairly maligned, and both inadvertently end up revealing that the science behind their claims is complex and its findings hard to translate into usable advice.

THE SURPRISING FOOD THAT MAY CAUSE ANGER & AGGRESSION

This is the story of one parent’s quest for the cause of over-the-top anger and aggression.

ODD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, may sound like every teenager you’ve ever met with symptoms of:

  • anger and irritable mood
  • aggressive
  • argumentative
  • vindictive
  • manipulative
  • lack of respect for authority

But these symptoms were occurring in a 6 year old child.  After eliminating sugar, food coloring and wheat, another devious food culprit was found.  Corn.  And as we know, corn hides under many names, just like sugar.  Read labels, and watch for:

  • dextrin
  • dextrose
  • maltodextrin
  • maltodextrose
  • high fructose corn syrup
  • corn starch
  • modified starch
  • xanthan gum
  • guar gum
  • sorbitol
  • xylitol
  • msg
  • GDL
  • and more!

The good news is, this story has a happy ending.  The symptoms abated with a change in diet.  This is an article well worth reading:
