Consumption of high-fructose corn syrup in beverages may play a role in the epidemic of obesity

Consumption of high-fructose corn syrup in beverages may play a role in the epidemic of obesity

We analyzed food consumption patterns by using US Department of Agriculture food consumption tables from 1967 to 2000. The consumption of High Fructose Corn Syrup increased > 1000% between 1970 and 1990, far exceeding the changes in intake of any other food or food group.

The increased use of
High Fructose Corn Syrup in the United States mirrors the rapid increase in obesity. Hepatic metabolism of fructose favors de novo lipogenesis. In addition, unlike glucose, fructose does not stimulate insulin secretion or enhance leptin production. Furthermore, calorically sweetened beverages may enhance caloric overconsumption. Thus, the increase in consumption of High Fructose Corn Syrup has a temporal relation to the epidemic of obesity, and the over consumption of High Fructose Corn Syrup in calorically sweetened beverages may play a role in the epidemic of obesity. Therefore reduce the consumption of HFCS to avoid obesity !
