Is High-Fructose Corn Syrup making us fat?

Maybe. A 1990 study found that after three weeks of drinking three-and-a-half cans of high-fructose corn syrup-sweetened soda daily women gained an average of +2.1 pounds while men gained +1.1 pounds.1 The reason for the weight gain was simple ? they consumed 13 percent more calories per day. Men consumed 374 calories and women 247 calories more each day. When the same subjects were given sodas sweetened with NutraSweet? (aspartame) for three weeks calorie intake was 7 percent lower than normal. Women gained an average of +0.6 pounds, which was not statistically significant, while men lost -1 pound.

A paper by Simopoulos and Van Itallie identified this connection back in 1984. Read the entire article | Email this article

Blood Pressure: “Lower is better” is false

"Much of the worry about blood pressure--especially the ?lower is better'--is false," says mathematics and statistics professor Sidney S. Port from the University of California, Los Angeles. Prof. Port is the lead author of an excellent, ground-breaking, landmark, paradigm-shifting paper about the risks associated with systolic blood pressure. The paper reveals that the risk of death associated with systolic blood pressure is "greatly overestimated... for more than 70 percent of the population". Read the entire article | Email this article

Does saccharin cause weight gain?

IT MAY SUGGESTS A NEW STUDY. A group of 465 people were interviewed twice 4 years apart. Those in the top one-third for saccharin consumption, consuming more than 28 grams per day, gained the most weight - on average 3.1 lbs. This does not prove the saccharin causes weight gain. It may be simply that people who are most likely to gain weight also consume the most saccharin-sweetened foods. It would be interesting to see a long-term study to determine if saccharin is as beneficial as NutraSweet for weight loss and weight maintenance. (Also see ?Does NutraSweet help with weight loss?? and other articles on saccharin's effect on metabolism.) Read the entire article | Email this article

The type of fat affects weight gain in rats

OBESE RATS FED A HIGH PALM OIL DIET gained more weight than those fed a high soybean oil diet. Weight increased 16 percent on the high palm oil diet compared to 10 percent on the soybean oil diet compared to no weight gain for those fed a low-fat diet. The body weight of naturally lean rats was not affected by the high-fat diets. The high-fat and low-fat diets contained 65 percent fat and 15 percent fat, respectively. This suggests that certain types of dietary fat may be more fattening in genetically susceptible individuals. Read the entire article | Email this article
