A new study found out by researchers indicates that diet, which has a high level of fructose or if an individual consumes a high amount of fructose in the food then it may damage the immune system completely. It tends to create a long-lasting disease as well and hence people may suffer from constant colds and will feel lazy all the time. Most diseases occur because of the weak immune system. The new research was found out by Swansea scientists where they tell about the consequences of having a weak immune system and how the immune system damages with time. In collaboration with the scientist at the University of Bristol and the Francis Crick Institute in London has indicated that there are many side effects of having a diet which carries a high amount of fructose. In sugar drinks, fructose is mainly the highest content ingredient and hence its consumption gets high if a person likes to eat and drink sweet items the most.

Our body has a balanced level of everything which keeps the body fit and healthy from having a disease. In food production, sweet food which contains a high amount of fructose is delivered regularly and consumers consume it at a very rapid rate. Scientists state that a high level of fructose can give rise to heavy diseases such as type 2 diabetes and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Its intake has increased in the last few years and hence the patients are suffering from these diseases at a very high rate. However, the consumption of fructose leaves a great impact on the immune system and it can be limited if people start to understand the quantity of intake is in a very much channelized way.

The new study which is published online in the journal shows some shocking facts and figures about people who are suffering from diabetes and have a high level of fructose. This study shows that fructose causes the immune system to become weak and that process produces more reactive inter molecules since the reaction of molecules and these reacting molecules are very much associated with inflammation. The cells can be highly damaged through this. Inflammation of this kind can go on to damage cells and tissues and can highly contribute to organs which could lead to disease.
