'Junk Food' Sugar May Help Some Fat Cells Proliferate
Date:6/20/2010

But lab study needs further testing in humans, experts say

SUNDAY, June 20 (HealthDay News) -- New research suggests that the ubiquitous sugar known as fructose may cause certain fat cells in children to multiply faster, which might play a key role in childhood and adult obesity.

Fructose is a component of high-fructose corn syrup, which is widely used in a variety of foods, including soft drinks, candy and many processed foods.

"We're seeing more type 2 diabetes in children, and that's due to children being overweight," Gans said. "What's even scarier is that children are increasing their risk for developing heart disease earlier."

Experts have noted a rise in blood pressure and cholesterol levels in overweight children.

According to the research, which is to be presented Sunday at the Endocrine Society's annual meeting in San Diego, high-fructose corn syrup is becoming more prevalent in American foods than sucrose.

The authors, led by doctoral candidate Georgina Coade at the University of Bristol in Britain, extracted pre-adipocytes -- the cells that eventually turn into fat cells -- from 32 children who wer
