From The Associated Press, this is your brain on sugar…
After drinking a fructose beverage, the brain doesn’t register the feeling of being full as it does when simple glucose is consumed, researchers found.
Fructose is a kind of sugar. Table sugar is half fructose, and high-fructose corn syrup which appears in many soft drinks and snacks is 55 percent fructose.
For the government-funded study, researchers took several brain scans of healthy young adults before and after drinking sugary drinks. Researchers suggest the effect can be reduced by making more home-cooked meals and paying attention to the ingredient list in your processed foods.
