High Fructose Corn Syrup Obesity

High Fructose Corn Syrup Dangers

High Fructose Corn Syrup Obesity is one of the latest common phrases we're hearing today. High Fructose Corn Syrup also referred to as HFCS. If I told you that HFCS was at the top of the dangerous foods to avoid list because it contributes directly to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease would you still consume it? Would you allow your children to consume it? So many are allowing consumption of soda in the home without this knowledge.

If I told you it is IMMEDIATELY STORED AS FAT and you want to kick obesity to the curb would you think about it then?

HFCS is the least expensive form of sugar and it is in almost everything. This substance is contributing to a world wide epidemic again known as High Fructose Corn Syrup Obesity. This "cheap sugar" is responsible for disrupting metabolic pathways that regulate your hunger signals.

READ YOUR LABELS AND LOOK FOR THE FOLLOWING FOODS TO AVOID:

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Corn Syrup
  • Corn Syrup Solids

The best way to get fatty liver without the buzz! Drink soda! I tease, but it is truth.

High Fructose Corn Syrup and Agave are highly dangerous to the human liver.

You and your family deserve better than to ingest this dangerous substance. This inexpensive and ultra-concentrated sugar has no resemblance to real food made by nature. There has been some recent reporting of mercury found in the processing of this health deteriorating substance, hence one of the many high fructose corn syrup obesity dangers.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and voice my opinion-

High Fructose Corn Syrup and Trans Fats are in fact child abuse in the form of food. No one else has the power. You are directly responsible for the long term health of your children.

If one has the knowledge, they have the power. You now have the knowledge so use your power!

I sure wish someone had given me this information while raising my own children. I was THAT parent, but I vow I will NOT be THAT grandparent.

When eliminating soda from your child's diet, do not replace it with diet soda or fruit juice. Fruit juice is not the same as eating fruit. It's strictly the sugar of the fruit without enzymes and beneficial fibers. Stevita has a nice product line that you can transition your children to for a healthier beverage option.

The below You Tube video is a fabulous lecture that we are so very fortunate to have access to.

I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Robert Lustig at a conference and his work has circulated throughout the world.

In a large study out of Singapore involving over 60,000 individuals, those who consumed on average 5 high fructose corn syrup sweetened sodas per week had nearly double the risk for developing deadly pancreatic cancer.

“The high levels of sugar in soft drinks may be increasing the level of insulin in the body, which we think contributes to pancreatic cancer cell growth,” said Mark Pereira, Ph.D., senior author on the study and associate professor in the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota.

As you can see, there are more problems with this sweetener than just high fructose corn syrup obesity. It's a true detriment to human health.
