Promoting High Fructose Corn Syrup – A Severe Health Risk


High Fructose Corn Syrup
Fat Fertilizer


There is a strong ad campaign currently running promoting high fructose corn syrup.  The Corn Refiners Association has launched a major marketing campaign and internet site    to defend the sweetener.  Here are the commercials that are currently on TV encouraging the product:

High fructose corn syrup is not the same as natural, healthy fructose in honey and fruit. High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is a highly refined artificial product created through a process that transforms cornstarch into a thick, clear liquid.  White sugar and high fructose corn syrup are not the same either.  Advocates for corn growers claim they are the same, but nutritional science studies report that HFCS is worse than highly refined sugar - and refined sugar isn't good for you.


HFCS is sweeter than sugar and is digested differently and in a bad way.  It goes directly to the liver releasing enzymes that instruct the body to store fat.  It also may slow fat burning and cause weight gain.  Other research indicates it does not stimulate insulin production, which usually creates a sense of being full.  People then eat more than they should which causes weight gain.

Here is a link to Dr. Vincent Bellonzi explaining the truth about HFCS.
