Fructose, which literally means "fruit sugar," sounds so sweet and innocent. And indeed, when incorporated into the diet in moderate amounts, say, in the form of fruit - always organic and raw, when possible – it's about as pure and wholesome as food gets. Not so for industrially processed fructose in isolate form, which may be as addictive as alcohol and morphine
