High fructose corn syrup is a killer. Since humans started consuming it, obesity rates have more than tripled and diabetes incidence has increased more than seven fold. Even when used in moderation it is a major cause of heart disease, obesity, cancer, dementia, liver failure, tooth decay, and more.
So what does the FDA do about this silent
killer? It allows food producers to change the name of the infamous
sweeter in order to trick consumers into thinking they are not eating
high fructose corn syrup.
That’s right, high fructose corn syrup
now goes by a new, deceitful name – “Natural Sweetener” – designed to
trick customers into making ill-informed choices that will impact on
Consumers are finally catching on to the fact that
what we put in our mouths effects our waistline as well as our health.
Since consumers have become much smarter and finally waking up to these
realities, they are demanding healthier food choices. Every food company
is smearing 100% natural on every box of anything regardless of whats
inside the box. Now we have to know the new sneaky name to know whether
or not we are consuming High Fructose Corn Syrup or not. Obviously the
best way to avoid this mess is to buy from companies you really trust.
food companies are hiding ingredients they know we really don’t want to
consume in their products. This time it’s the presence of a new version
of high fructose corn syrup. But this is not the innocuous fructose
that has sweetened the fruits humans have eaten since time began. This
is a questionable ingredient with many names that could be causing all
sorts of health problems.
