The Truth About High Fructose Corn Syrup

July 18, 2011

The fact that corn syrup is not a health food is not breaking news, but it can still be found in a large variety of processed and fast foods. A few years ago, the industry made some commercials to show that corn syrup is perfectly safe. It's made from corn, after all.

Aside from the fact that the syrup is made from highly subsidized GMO corn, it's also quite toxic for the human body. At first, I was laughing at the video, but then it just became sad. It's amazing what is allowed to get passed off as food in our world.

You are right Shoshanna Levy. It's very sad. The corn refiners expect us to be their slaves, and consume as much HFCS as we can--in everything. We don't have to be slaves to corn refiners and their lobbyists by refusing to consume high fructose corn syrup and the foods that it is in. Our health will improve as we rebel against the huge corporations that would have us become sick and unhealthy--as they profit from unhealthy processed foods.
