New research has found that sugary sweet drinks can be more harmful to health, such as sugar found in foods such as whole fruit, and possibly a 2-day diabetes risk.
Canadian researchers, including the San Miguel Hospital of Toronto, included a total of 155 investigations in the new review, with 5,086 participants attending to the study of the effect of different sources of sugar on the blood glucose levels and those with diabetes.
Fructose sugar naturally occurs in many foods, such as healthy fruits and vegetables, natural fruit juices and honey, such as soft drinks, breakfast cereals, baked goods, sweets and desserts. »
The findings published by the BMJ include sweet potatoes and other fructose, which may have adverse effects on food at glucose levels, which may increase the risk of type 2 diabetes.
Diabetes is a chronic disease, if the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, the hormone or body that regulates blood sugar can not use insulin efficiently.
However, it seems that fructose that occurs with fruit and other foods are not harmful to blood glucose levels.
In fact, researchers have found fruit and fruit juice that have beneficial effects on blood glucose and insulin, especially for people with diabetes. In fact, the high fiber content of fiber helps slow down the release of sugars.
The current guidelines are recommended to reduce the consumption of free sugars, especially in sweet drinks, with more evidence that it can be harmful to fructose health.
However, the researchers have indicated that the review has some limitations, including small sample sizes, short-term follow-up and with some students, including a limited number of foods.
"These findings could be helpful in the prevention of and prevention of diabetes in the management of dietary foods," said Dr. John Sievenpiper, the principal author of the research. "But the evidence is low and high quality studies are required."
