What would happen if I replaced Fructose with Glucose in SAD

Here is an interesting question, that I'm sure has at least one scientific study answering it. My understanding is the standard american diet has a high level of fructose, especially from drinks. Do you know what effect on the body it would have if i ate the standard american diet, except i cut out all fructose and replaced it with glucose.

Let's say i stopped eating all fruit and soda (my guess as to the major fructose sources) and instead replaced it with kool-aid sweetened with regular corn syrup (the 100% glucose kind). What body effects would I see?

Mscott, 4 links to different commentary on the same study. I find it very useful to examine how people interpret results. These differences are particularly interesting.

It really shows how the OP could have done his own search!

Aww thanks, you are really an unfriendly bunch. The just google it reply can be used for just about any question posted on the internet everywhere. Sorry I couldn't find the answer. I must be an idiot moron just like the rest of you. Oh and calling you a moron wasn't a personal attack.

You clearly have too much time on your hands. It wasn't an attack; merely an observation. You claim to have a PhD, yet can't do a simple glucose vs. fructose search? Even Google will give you decent results.

If you really don't like my question, why not just down vote it and skip the personal attacks?

So I take it you are a PhD without a job. Where do you come up with this shit?

Feinman's take.

At paleo levels, I don't think it matters. I suppose you could save a life or two at SAD levels. Less non-alcoholic fatty liver disease for the kiddies drinking their 32oz sodas from the gas station. Those same kiddies will be presenting other diseases at some point, so I don't know how much better things would look statistically.

As to your body effects, it is doubtful you'd see much of anything. Much of this stuff is liver related- and then there is an interplay between glucose and fructose that the outright fructose haters don't seem to appreciate. Fructose encourages the liver to take in glucose. If there were actually zero fructose in your diet, but a high and continual presence of glucose, well that might actually turn out to be a bad thing.
