Another nail in the coffin for high fructose corn syrup: “Fructose metabolism in the brain increases food intake and obesity”
“. . .M. Daniel Lane and co-workers at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore have now pulled together work, largely in their laboratory (many papers beginning in 2000), dealing with the role of malonyl-CoA in the signaling system in the brain (specifically the hypothalamus) that has inputs into the higher brain centers that determine feeding behavior, most notably appetite. Two papers in the journal PNAS in 2007 and 2008 showed that glucose and fructose act quite differently in the brain (hypothalamus) – glucose decreasing food intake and fructose increasing food intake. Both of these sugars signal in the brain through the malonyl-CoA signaling pathway and have inverse effects on food intake. . .”

Events This Saturday!:
– Diablo CrossFit Ladies Night starts at Manora’s, then moves over to the Holy Cow across the street. Email Yvonne if you’d like to attend.
– Don’t forget to sponsor one of our ‘Stair Climbers’ climbing the Bank of America Building Tomorrow to raise money for Lung Cancer research.
– Also (for those of you not going to the San Francisco climb), CrossFit Oakland is hosting a fund raising event for the 4 Oakland Police Officers killed last weekend (Sgt Mark Dunakin, Officer John Hege, Sgt Daniel Sakai, and Sgt Ervin Romans), The event will go from 9a.m. to 11a.m at CrossFit Oakland.
Please post to comments if you wish to go (so we can arrange a carpool).
If you can’t make it and would just like to donate some money. We are collecting at the gym. Just give a check or cash to any trainer and we’ll make sure it gets to the families of the fallen officers.
