High Fructose Corn Syrup

Yes we have all seen the commercials on "High Fructose Corn Syrup". They have compared it to table sugar and that it is only sugar. Well ofcourse these corporations are not going to expose their products as "Hazardous" to our health because they are here to make a profit and to make themselves look good. Just as advertisements for cigarettes back then when they had people having a "great time" while smoking cigarettes, but what they never saw was advertisements of the major side effects of smoking until now.

To further complicate matters, the Corn Refiners Association recently launched a major advertising and PR campaign designed to rehabilitate HFCS’ reputation. The group is spending $20 million to $30 million on the campaign, including running full-page ads in more than a dozen major newspapers, claiming that the product is no worse for you than sugar.

HFCS is found in many many processed food such as ketchup, breads, tortillas, soy sauce and you will be surprised in how many more foods you will find. High Fructose Corn Syrup goes straight into your liver and stores it as fat because your liver does not know what to do with it. HFCS is in all sodas, why do you think soda is the number one product that is recommended off your list when on a diet? HFCS is the leading cause of obesity in this country as well as diabetes and insulin resistance. Ofcourse the FDA teams up with these large corporations because the FDA makes a profit as well, they get paid to back these corporations up, unless we stand up and fight for our health. The leading cause of DEATH in this country is what we consume, it's ofcourse a natural thing to die, everyone dies but if we can avoid dying at a young age by educating ourselves about the foods we eat  that kill us each year wouldn't you avoid it?
