    Fructose and glucose cause the same amount of weight gain and same amount of fat gain, however, fructose increases belly fat whereas glucose increases subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin) notes Kimber Stanhope, PhD, a researcher from the University of California at Davis, who has done studies comparing the effects of consuming glucose vs fructose, who was interviewed on ReachMD.com.

    Unexpected Result

    This fact of fructose and glucose causing fat gain in different areas of the body was completely unexpected

    Stanhope noted that this was a completely unexpected result which took them by surprise.

    Background

    The following information is from here.

    Dr. Stanhope has committed herself to the further investigation of these novel and important findings.

    She first-authored four reviews on dietary fructose which reflects her growth as a scientist, creativity, and ever-increasing interest and expertise in lipid metabolism.

    She has written a 5-year NIH RO1 grant proposing more studies in human subjects that will specifically compare the effects of dietary fructose and high fructose corn syrup at low, medium and high doses.

    This grant was funded in 3-2008, and under Dr. Stanhope’s supervision studies began in October 2008.

    She has also written and submitted an NIH grant proposing to investigate the atherogenic responses of in vitro endothelial cells exposed to plasma from subjects who consumed fructose and an NIH R01 grant proposing studies in nonhuman primates to determine the mechanisms underlying the differences observed in the metabolic effects of glucose and fructose.

    During her 13-year tenure in the laboratory of Dr. Peter Havel, Dr. Stanhope has also acquired extensive experience directing research in non-human primates at the California National Primate Research Center (18 projects), rats, and in isolated adipocytes.

    Dr. Stanhope earned her master degree in nutrition science and her doctoral degree in nutritional biology at UC-Davis.

    This information should be more specific. The article seems to blur the distinction between fructose which is natural and high fructose corn syrup which is artificial.
