Dr. Martin looks at two different studies in today’s episode. The first about vitamin D, or VitDerma as Dr. Martin likes to call it, and the second on high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
Any study on vitamin D is a good study, and this one is saying how sunlight energizes special cells in your immune system called T-cells. Dr. Martin has spoken previously about these little antenna receptors on your T-cells looking specifically for vitamin D. They energize your cells and help strengthen your immune system.
The second study on fructose consumption, and specifically high-fructose corn syrup, the Frankenstein of sugar, is warning of serious changes to the liver even in the absence of obesity. The study is basically saying you can be skinny and still metabolically unwell, and that’s a dangerous combination.
