High Fructose Corn Syrup Can Harm You, Like Sugar
I continue to be alarmed by the onslaught of so-called “information,” which suggests that high-fructose corn syrup is not responsible for obesity and that it’s not as bad as sugar.
In fact, I’m worried by the idea that “the tide of research, if not public opinion, has shifted,” as Elizabeth Weise suggests in a USA Today article, “New data: High-fructose corn syrup no worse than sugar.”
Get the truth, please, about the potential harms of high-fructose corn syrup, which you can learn from my two recent Gab With the Gurus Radio Shows — including this radio show, which featured several experts, and this radio show (listen to the last 15 minutes), which presented another well known expert, Dr. Richard Johnson, author of The Sugar Fix: The High Fructose Fallout That Is Making You Fat and Sick.
If you dig even a little bit into this subject, you’ll find that the average American does NOT consume moderate amounts of high-fructose corn syrup. If you’re eating or drinking prepared, processed or fast foods — which is what most Americans do — you’re taking in high amounts of the stuff. And all that HFCS can lead to numerous health problems, including heart disease, cancer, obesity and much more. (For that matter, too much sugar (or sucrose) is dangerous, too, as I reveal in my book SUGAR SHOCK!)
