even after their diet improves. This is because the sugar diet leads to long-term reprogramming of gene expression.

The gene is also important for humans, so the findings may have broad implications for us.

The research team fed a healthy diet containing 5% sugar to one group and the other group was given 40% sugar. After three weeks both groups of flies ate healthy food. Flies live about 90 days, and they ate sugar for 23% of their life. This corresponds to approximately 17 years of our human life.

Even after healthy diet, the flies with a high-sugar diet started to die earlier average had 7% it means 5 human years.

Maybe now the question rise: is it better live longer or more pleasure?

Sugar causes overeating and obesity

In society at large there seems to be a problem with overeating. A statistical analysis shows why.

This overeating isn’t due to just an excess of foods. People tend to eat until they are full, but it turns out that there are foods that keep us from feeling full. Sugar, especially in drinks, overrides our sense of feeling full.

Even things like fruit juice contain far too much sugar and will not make you feel full.
