    'Fructose is treated by the liver almost identically to ethanol, so consuming 15 grams of agave nectar (a few teaspoons) is as hard on the body as drinking one beer. The only major difference between fructose and ethanol is that the brain is unable to recognize fructose at all, while ethanol has quite an effect. So, fructose is, "alcohol without the buzz".'


    That could explain why, after a bit of a binge a while back when I was trying to 'minimize the damage' by putting copious amounts of agave on everything rather than plain old sugar, I woke up the next day feeling like my kidneys had taken a serious beating. Wow.
