Sweet May Reduce Weight
Researchers have found that drinking and eating sweets may reduce obesity and weight. Glucocorticodes are stress-reducing hormones, which are produced in the body when the 0person is under stress. This hormone reduces the stress but is responsible for increase in weight and obesity. The researchers have found that by eating and drinking sweet the hormone level is reduced causing no increase in weight and obesity.

Professor Ulrich-Lai and her team from University of Cincinnati have experimented their study in lab rats in which the test group of rats was given sugary drink twice a day and the control rats were given only water. The researchers found after the
study that the test group rats produced less amount of hormone compared to the control group. The researchers are now studying the whether there is any relation between certain parts of the brain that control the response to stress, then determine if the function of these brain regions are changed by sugar snacking.
