The results of animal experiments announced at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases has lent credence to the belief that sugary soft drinks play a role in the development of liver disease.
The effect of sugar-sweetened water was tested on the livers of mice. Another group was fed artificially sweetened water as a comparison.
Examination of the livers of the mice showed an increased incidence of fatty liver disease, especially among mice who were given the type of sugar called fructose.
High fructose consumption may be directly toxic to the liver, as well as causing damage through over-feeding.
There is an increasing prevalence of liver disease in the United States, and the increased consumption of high fructose corn syrup in foods such as soft drinks may be partly to blame.
