The established link between fructose intake and rising rates of obesity was further investigated in a pre-clinical study using mice treated with fructose, and examining the surface of villi in the small intestine. Researchers found the mice receiving fructose had 25-40% longer villi than the controls. They also had more nutrient intake, weight gain and fat deposition than controls. They concluded that fructose alters g.i. cells in a way that allows increased intake of nutrients. Though fascinating, more data in humans is needed before this mechanism can be generalized to humans.
