Added sugars in processed foods and cola drinks could be one of the primary causes of today's epidemic of 'lifestyle diseases', such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity - and doctors don't realise it.
Researchers at the University of Colorado, who have carried out an analysis of health effects of fructose in our food, say doctors do not suspect it could be one of the primary causes of a range of health conditions, collectively known as metabolic syndrome.
Not only are they causing hypertension, diabetes and obesity, they are also responsible for chronic kidney disease (CKD).
HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) is one of the most common forms of dietary fructose, and is found in almost every type of processed food, from breakfast cereals, biscuits, cakes, and cola drinks.
