Canadian scientists have found that sugar abuse can lead to serious inflammatory diseases of the gastrointestinal tract.
Specialists from the University of Alberta conducted a study and presented its results.
As noted by Medical Xpress, experiments were performed on mice. They showed that rodents, in whose diet sugar was present, had more damage to the intestinal tissue in the case of artificially induced colitis. In addition, this product stimulated the development of pathogenic bacteria.
Scientists also found that the waste products of bacteria can freely move from the intestine to other parts of the body, which increases the risk of developing other diseases.
