28 Feb Not all Sugars are the Same, Your Brain Can Tell the Difference
By Dr. Matt Fontaine To combat all the negative publicity around the dangers of consuming high fructose corn syrup, advertisements have popped up stating “sugar is sugar, your body can’t tell the difference”. This is just another lie produced by Big Corn. Research shows otherwise. According to the Chicago Tribune:
“The researchers … found that ‘cortical control areas’ — broad swaths of gray matter that surrounded the hypothalamus — responded quite differently to the infusion of fructose than they did to glucose. Across the limited regions of the brain they scanned … glucose significantly raised the level of neural activity for about 20 minutes following the infusion. Fructose had the opposite effect, causing activity in the same areas to drop and stay low for 20 minutes after the infusion.”

It just makes sense that the body would react differently to different compositions of sugars. Next time you are at the grocery store, look at what the overweight and obese people have in their carts. Chances are high, there will be soda and all other sorts of junk filled with sugar.
