Are you one of those who can’t stop eating sweets or drinking soda? This interests you.
New research carried out by scientists at the University of Swansea, in collaboration with scientists from the University of Bristol and the Francis Crick Institute in London (all three British), suggests that maintaining a diet rich in high fructose could prevent the proper functioning of the system immunity of people in a hitherto unknown way.
High fructose is commonly found in sugary drinks, sweets, and processed foods. It is associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, and its intake has increased substantially throughout the developed world in recent years. However, understanding of the impact of high fructose on the immune system of people who consume it at high levels has been limited until now, notes the University of Swansea in a note about the study published on its website.
The research was published in the journal Nature Communications shows that high fructose causes the immune system to flare up. Inflammation of this type can damage cells and tissues and contribute to the organs and systems of the body not working as they should and could lead to disease, according to the study.
The research also provides a deeper understanding of how high fructose might be linked to diabetes and obesity, as low-level inflammation is often associated with obesity.
