Consuming fructose appears to cause changes in the brain that may lead to overeating.
“Increases in fructose consumption have paralleled the increasing prevalence of obesity, and high-fructose diets are thought to promote weight gain and insulin resistance,” lead author Kathleen A. Page, MD, and colleagues from Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, write.
Their findings are published in the January 2 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
This is significant for the food industry using fructose in many of their products
www.//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_fructose_corn_syrup shows why there a high use of high fructose corn syrup in the US because of cost vs sweetness compared to sucrose ( simple sugars)
Fruits have fructose too. I believe we have” fruit addiction” too. Clearly this will apply to those who eat fruits for their carb instead of low glycemic foods and too much fruits could increase appetite and lead to obesity
