Sugar's Depressing for Men

    According to this study:
    https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-017-05649-7

    What I find interesting is that the authors did not list the byproducts produced when fructose is metabolized as a possible vehicle for what they found.

    In fact, in one news article a scientist commenting on the study almost denied the possibility.
    Here is the article:
    https://www.theguardian.com/society...ncrease-depression-risk-in-men-study-suggests
    Here is the quote:
    To be precise, sugar is broken down into glucose and fructose in the gut. And fructose has a fairly low glycemic index. But that's because it needs to be processed in the liver.

    I've long tried to reduce my sugar intake. Not only for the sake of my teeth, but I also notice I feel better after a week of low sugar in my diet. It's difficult because sugar is addictive, in everything, and I have a sweet tooth.
