The unrefined fructose is good for health, but the problem comes when eating junk food and artificial drinks that contain high amounts of this sweetener.

This information is already in the public domain, but in Latin America is still considered to fructose as a good alternative when a healthy diet (and of course, take into account that it is very cheap), so it was decided to make the corresponding medical study by pediatrician Villaroel Luis Celestino Cruz.
