High Fructose Corn Syrup?

I just read an article about High Fructose Corn Syrup or HFCS that I think everyone should read. I stopped having anything in my house with HFCS about a year ago because everything that I read kept saying how horrible it was. They have now found that it is linked to Diabetes in children. To think that something that is in so many products can harm a child for life is so sad. If you have any interest the article was on the Fox News Website (www.foxnews.com). I have included a link below.

I just had to chime in here. High Fructose Corn Syrup is the number #2 reason for obesity in this country, #1 is of course over eating. Corn is good for fattening cattle Period! It is not only extremely hard for you and the cow by the way to digest but it is also an inflamatory to your cellular structure. So do not be suprised to find more links to other inflamatory based diseases in the near future.

If you want to live heathier longer eat as natural as possible. Sugar is for from health food but the alternatives are harmful and potentially toxic. Read up on aspartame a combination of three poisons and proven carcinogens that tastes sweet what a great idea! Did you now that when canned in that diet soda aspartame starts breaking down into its base products all of which are toxic. Want to help ward off the BIG C lay off Diet Sodas or any other non-natural foods that you can do without.

PS. I am so far from being a granola cruncher it would blow your mind, so don't think I am some non bathing nature freak. I simply realize that what occurs in Nature is always better than a man made product created to lower production costs increase profits.

Check out the "French Paradox" why can they consume twice as much fats as americans and have half the incidence of heart attack. Could it be that they eat more naturally? They eat grass fed meats and Their goverment does not subsidize corn syrup they use old fashioned sugar.

Yes your goverment uses your tax dollars to subsidize corn genetically altered to create corn syrup. So General Mills and the other big boys can bank more cash and meanwhile your middle is getting thicker and your health is suffering.

HMMM! Start reading labels if you are fatigued by the time you get to the end of the ingredients put it back on the shelf! Do not by any means eat it on a regular basis, unless you are worried that your doctor won't be able to make his Airplane payment if he does not see you on a monthly basis.

End of Rant!
Eat better and Prosper. If not for you, for your Kids!
