Can sugar modify the immune system?
« on: 14/04/2006 04:39:03 »
I have seen repeated refrences to a study in which the ingestion of 100 grams of sugar (equivilent of a 12 oz. can of Coke) can reduce the white blood cells' ability to kill germs for up to 5 hr. after.   
Does anyone know the source of this study (if it indeed exists)?
