Depression is more than just feeling sad

Sugar gets a bad reputation. And for a good reason. There are multiple unusual side effects of sugar. Added sugar can have multiple effects on the body, including its contribution to teeth decay, weight gain, heart disease, and yes, even cancer. But there is another side effect of sugar that nobody is talking about.
Natural vs. Artificial Sugar
The main difference between natural sugar and high fructose corn syrup is the balance of fructose and glucose in high-fructose corn syrup.
As the name suggests, there is more fructose in the syrup than in regular sugar. The difference, however, is that an apple contains fiber and other nutritious elements that outweigh its sugar content.
So how does an excess of sugar make one gain weight?
How It Works
When you ingest sugar, the liver metabolizes the fructose and converts it into fat. The spike in triglycerides also leads to a reduced amount of HDL cholesterol (or the 'good' kind of cholesterol).
What Too Much Sugar Can Do to You
Ingesting too much sugar hurts the metabolism and, over time, it weakens it. This causes metabolic dysfunction, meaning your insulin stops working properly. This is one major side effect that most people are unaware of.
This side effect can directly lead to obesity, heart disease, and type II diabetes. In addition, added sugar is especially addictive. So the more sugar you eat, the more likely you'll become addicted and reliant on it.
The best way to cut back on your sugar intake is to be aware of what and how much you eat. A sugary treat every once in a while is normal. Overindulgence in anything is where it gets dangerous. So, overall eat those foods with high sugar in moderation and remember healthy eating may be easier than you think.

Scientists halt diabetes with insulin cells
A cure for type I diabetes has been brought closer why scientists who halted the conditions for six months using insulin producing cells
Researchers from American hospitals and institutions including Harvard University transplanted cells into mice the researchers were able to show they could prevent the cells being rendered useless by the body's immune system which was effectively "switched off" the findings potentially provide signals towards finding a cure for type I diabetes, which affects four hundred thousand people in Britain. Scientists are working to replicate the results in patients with the condition.
Scientists led by Doug Melton a professor at Harvard, discovered in late two thousand fourteen how to make huge quantities of insulin-producing cells. The islet cells used for the latest research were generated from human stem cells developed by Professor Melton
After implantation in the mice, the sales began to produce insulin in response to blood glucose levels, which remained within a healthy range for the length of the study. The findings were published in the journals Nature Medicine and in Nature Biotechnology.Home Page - diabetes
