The consumption of a diet high in sugar fructose may prevent the proper functioning of one's immune system, a recent study has revealed. High fructose foods include sugary drinks, processed foods, and sweets and also, fructose is used widely in food production. It is associated with the development of type 2 diabetes, obesity, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.

In recent years, its intake has increased substantially throughout the developed world. However, information on the impact of high-level consumption of fructose on the immune system has been limited until now. The study showed that fructose causes the immune system to become inflamed and that process produces more reactive molecules which are associated with inflammation.

Inflammation of this kind can go on to damage cells and tissues and contribute to organs and body systems not working as they should and could lead to disease. The research also brings a deeper understanding about how fructose could be linked to diabetes and obesity-as low-level inflammation is often associated with obesity.

It also builds on the growing body of evidence available to public health policymakers about the damaging effects of consuming high levels of fructose. Research into different components of our diet can help us understand what might contribute to inflammation and disease and what could be best harnessed to improve health and wellbeing, said a researcher.
