A new article has been published in the journal Global Public Health by Michael Goran, a professor of preventive medicine at the University of Southern California and Oxford researcher Stanley Uliaszek, professor of Anthropology and Director of the Unit for Biocultural Variation and Obesity.

The research, which aimed to evaluate, from a global and ecological perspective, the relationships between availability of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and prevalence of type 2 diabetes, concluded that "these results suggest that countries with higher availability of HFCS have a higher prevalence of type 2 diabetes independent of obesity."
