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?
