I just discovered yesterday in Professor John Yudkin's book 'Pure, white and Deadly' that sugar is a stomach irritant, as in if you look at the interior of the stomach when it is given a sugar solution (particularly on its own) it will make the lining turn red and it inflames the tissues, I had no idea it did this. Has anyone seen any research or heard anything about sugar's effect on the gut or a connection to IBS? Sugar is so pervasive these days you actually have to work to avoid it so I wondered how many of us might be eating it with no idea it could be contributing to/causing our IBS problems.
