Scientists Discover a Significant Cause of Obesity

Colorado: Health researchers have discovered a critical factor related to obesity in food.

According to news agencies, scientists have uncovered a link between a certain component in food and the potential for an increase in obesity.

In a recent study on obesity, biological and integrated physiology researchers attempted to understand the relationship between fructose and weight gain. There are several theories regarding the reasons for weight gain, such as fats, carbohydrates, protein, or sugar, but fructose, the natural sugar found in fruits, can be a major contributing factor to obesity.

Researchers have found that fructose reduces the amount of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the body through its central energy-regulating pathway. This leads to an increased desire for more food and subsequently results in weight gain.

According to experts, fructose is a natural sugar commonly found in fruits like apples and bananas in small quantities. Consumption of fruits is not linked to this issue. However, fructose is used as an extra sweetener in various foods besides the common household sugar. It is used in products such as high fructose corn syrup, agave syrup (used as a syrup), chocolates, beverages, fast food, sauces, pickles, and more.

Previous studies have suggested that fructose may alter the composition of cells in the digestive system, causing people to absorb more calories from whatever they eat.
