New research conducted on mice is raising questions about what’s considered a safe level of daily sugar consumption for humans.
 
In the experiments, mice were fed a diet of 25 percent added — refined and processed — sugars, the amount eaten by many people. During the research, female mice died at double their normal rate and male mice were less likely to have offspring and maintain territory, according to the Los Angeles Times.
 
The work, published in the journal Nature Communications and led by University of Utah Professor of Biology Wayne Potts, demonstrates that sugar consumption levels now considered safe have “dramatic impacts on mammalian health,” researchers reported.
