University of Utah research found that female mice that ate a diet containing 25% added sugars died at twice the normal rate and that males fed the same way were less likely to reproduce. Researchers wrote in the journal Nature Communications that the data suggest that consuming added sugars at rates considered safe may have "dramatic impacts on mammalian health," but the Corn Refiners Association responded that mice usually do not eat sugar so the only way to really know is to do the study with humans.
