High cholesterol: Avoiding a single ingredient lowers levels by 46%

The authors said: “Concerns surrounding the role of sugar consumption in chronic disease have previously focused on its caloric equivalence and its role in fomenting increases in weight.

“This study argues that the health detriments of sugar are independent of its caloric value or effects on weight.”

However, there are some limitations to the study. During the study it was not possible to keep the children’s weights exactly the same, and some children did lose weight.

Also, the participant’s normal calorie intake was based on their own estimation, which is usually under-estimated, so some of the results seen could have been the results of calorie reduction.
