The study, scheduled for publication in The Journal of Nutrition, found that consumption of the fructose-glucose mixture led to reduced lifespan and reproduction in female mice. No differences in survival, reproduction or territoriality were observed among male mice, however.

For the study, mice followed a healthy diet with 25% of its total calories coming from either added fructose and glucose monosaccharides or from sucrose for the duration of 40 weeks, prior to being released into a controlled environment for 32 weeks of observation.
