Gut Check - So Sweet it Hurts!

Gee... a study showing that fructose intolerance is more common than previously thought. What a revelation! 

We have known about fructose intolerance for four decades, yet food manufacturers have done little or nothing to remove fructose and its many forms like corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup from their products. One of the main culprits is fructose sweetened soft-drinks. 

A valuable but disturbing finding was that a substantial proportion of the fructose-intolerant children were overweight or obese.

Fortunately, "the good news is that over half of patients who are fructose intolerant and are able to maintain a low‐fructose diet will notice an immediate improvement in their symptoms,” stated the studies author.

Stop eating the bad stuff and you will feel better.........and we need studies to prove this?
