Excess fructose harms the liver as does alcohol abuse

Scientists are finding new evidence that one of the most common types of sugar, fructose, can be toxic to the liver like alcohol.

For most people, fructose in its natural state – in the fruits of fruits – does not pose any harm. A unique feature of fructose is that it is processed in the liver, for which there is no problem to cope with a small amount of this sugar, which is ingested slowly. Take, for example, an apple: it takes a lot of time to chew it, and the dietary fiber contained in the apple slows down its processing in the intestines.

But today, manufacturers are increasingly adding fructose to foods in a highly concentrated form. To do this, they extract it from corn, beets and sugarcane, during which it loses its original nutrients and fiber. Frequent use of large doses of fructose during the day, without fibers that slow down its absorption, forces our body to process such an amount of this sugar that it is not suitable for. In almost all sugar-added foods, fructose levels are extremely high. Continue reading
