Fructose = obesity + diabetes + fatty liver

This is a 'must see' video on the biochemistry of fructose on the body. As Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology points out, fructose is a toxin and is metabolized just like ethanol (which is a toxin) but you don't get the buzz. What you end up with... after eating thousands of meals with high amounts of high fructose corn syrup .... is high blood pressure, insulin resistance, cardiovascular disease.... and weight gain.
