Too much fizzy pop or sweetened fruit juice alters the body’s metabolism, so that the muscles use sugar for energy, instead of burning fat, a study found.
The effect is long-term, making the pounds harder to shift and raising blood sugar levels, which increases the risk of conditions such as type 2 diabetes, it was claimed.
Is that the same would be true of any bolus of sugar that passed through the system. Like, say, our Neolithic forefathers feasting on the various fruits as they come into season.
Thus I\’d put it down as bollocks personally.
