Doctors say fructose may be to blame for overeating, according to a study conducted by researchers at Yale University.
Fructose, which is used as a sweetener in many products, especially sodas, can trigger brain changes that may lead to overeating.
FOX 29's Dr. Mike Cirigliano says the study shouldn't lead people to believe they can cut fructose from their diets and magically become healthy.
Dr. Cirigliano says this particular sugar study was done with a small group and more research needs to be done with more subjects.
Not the prettiest Friday, but we're ready for a great weekend. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the day. After an early high in the upper sixties, temperatures fall & winds pick up out of the chillier northwest. Right now the Memorial Day Weekend looks sunny and cool with highs in the low to mid 60s on Saturday, in the 70s Sunday & Monday. Cooler temps at the shore.
