High Fructose Delivers Low Blow to Liver’s Mitochondria

Dietary fructose is bad, but perhaps not for the reasons you’d expect. It doesn’t supply more calories than similar levels of glucose. Instead, it modifies mitochondrial proteins and thereby impairs liver metabolism, making the liver worse at burning fat. As a result, adding fructose to the diet makes the liver store more fat, which is bad for the liver and bad for whole body metabolism.
