Could sugar actually be good for your joints?

Too much sugar in your diet has often been cited as one of the main contributors to poor joint health, but could research being conducted by Durham and York Universities be about to turn this on its head?

Sugar is being used to ensure replacement joints can last longer. The researchers are working on the development of a plastic-based coating as a replacement for cartilage in artificial joints and have added tiny rings of sugar to it to help the protective material stick to the joint.

The coating also encourages water from the surrounding tissues to the surface, mimicking the lubrication function of real cartilage.
