Honey Is Not Better than Granulated table Sugar-
Honey has the same harmful effects on your health as any other form of concentrated sugar, such as the High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) found in most soft drinks (Journal of Nutrition, September 2, 2015). Researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture got a grant from the honey industry and gave 55 people daily doses for two weeks of each of three sweeteners:
* Granulated table sugar from sugar cane, and
* High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
At the end of the trial, all subjects had the same levels of blood sugar, insulin, body weight, cholesterol and blood pressure. Blood levels of triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, used to predict a person’s chances of suffering a heart attack, were the same for all three sources of sugar.
