Brief Summary:
A Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ), will be provided to 800 adults to assess overall fructose intake and this will be related to a number of features related to the metabolic syndrome, including serum leptin, characteristic features of metabolic syndrome (body mass index, waist circumference, plasma lipids, blood pressure, HOMA index,fasting glucose and fasting insulin levels) and other as: CRP, fibrinogen, homocysteine and uric acid.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Serum leptin levels as it relates to fructose intake [ Time Frame: Epidemiological association ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Relationship of metabolic syndrome features with fructose intake. This includes measuring all 5 components of metabolic syndrome, assessing insulin resistance by HOMA, and measuring some markers of inflammation (CRP, fibrinogen, homocysteine) [ Time Frame: Epidemiological ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA
Serum and urine collections.
