Lightbulb New Study About Fructose and Fat

I thought this tip from RealAge was interesting and worth keeping in the back of your mind, for now. It's just a small study, so we need to learn more, but it gives further credence, IMHO, to the reasons to avoid High Fructose Corn Syrup...

Which Sugar Is Worse?
Can your choice of sugar affect your waistline? It may be too soon to tell, but a very small study recently cast fructose in a worse light.

In the study, the sweet stuff dramatically enhanced lipogenesis -- the process by which the body converts sugar into fat.

Double or Nothing?
In fact, people in the study who consumed a fructose-laced breakfast drink produced double the body fat in a subsequent 4-hour period, compared with the people who had a glucose-only breakfast beverage.
