Fructose may lead to overeating
January 1, 2013 (WLS) -- Fructose, a sugar commonly found in the American diet, may trigger changes in the brain that can lead to overeating.
It's often added to processed foods and beverages. Using MRI scans, researchers found that after drinking a beverage with fructose the brain doesn't register the feeling of being full as it does when simple glucose is consumed.
Experts say this is a small study and does not prove that fructose or its relative high fructose corn syrup can cause obesity.
It's reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
