We know that too much sugar is not good for us, and truth be told, obesity and diabetes is not the only problems caused by excess sugar in our diet.
It turns out, that too much sugar changes us at the genetic level of the brain, which was discovered by UCLA researchers. A new study from life scientists at University of California ““ Los Angeles (UCLA) has found that hundreds of genes in the brain are damaged by fructose consumption.
Imagine that your body’s adaptation to fructose at the genetic level has perhaps been at the root of most peoples carb addictions and secondary health problems that we can reverse.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) one of the main omega-3 fatty acids is able to undo the effects of Fructose and restore the genetic damage done by these substances over time.

We”™ve talked before about the dangers of consuming too much sugar. That”™s because the average American is consuming upward of 300% above the daily recommended intake.
Fructose is a big part of this huge problem.
Last time we touched base on this topic, we dove into the inner workings of how fructose wreaks havoc on your body. Fructose can cause heart disease, liver disease, strokes, diabetes, arthritis and a whole bevy of potential health problems.
Today, the evidence against fructose grows even larger.
A new study from life scientists at University of California ““ Los Angeles (UCLA) has found that hundreds of genes in the brain are damaged by fructose consumption.
