Fructose- and sucrose- but not glucose-sweetened #beverages promote hepatic de novo #lipogenesis: A randomized controlled trial

Excessive fructose intake associates with increased de novo lipogenesis, blood triglycerides, and hepatic insulin resistance. Whether fructose-specific effects on lipid metabolism in healthy men exist independently from overfeeding needs clarification. Methods 94 subjects were studied in this double-blind, randomized trial. They were assigned to daily consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB) containing moderate amounts of fructose, sucrose (fructose-glucose disaccharide) or glucose (80g/day) in addition to their … Continue reading Fructose- and sucrose- but not glucose-sweetened #beverages promote hepatic de novo #lipogenesis: A randomized controlled trial

Sex Differences in the Association of Body Composition and #Cardiovascular Mortality

To determine whether differences in body composition contribute to sex differences in cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality, we investigated the relationship between components of body composition and CVD mortality in healthy men and women. Methods and Results Dual energy x‐ray absorptiometry body composition data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999–2004 and CVD mortality data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999–2014 … Continue reading Sex Differences in the Association of Body Composition and #Cardiovascular Mortality
