Dangerous chemicals found in high fructose corn syrup

High Fructose Corn Syrup(NaturalHealth365) Have you heard about the dangerous chemicals in high fructose corn syrup? This highly (unnatural) toxic substance is found in most processed foods. The problem is the general public is unaware of the poison lurking inside their meals.

Food scientists appear to have no conscience for humanity

Commercially-produced fructose is chemically conceived from beginning to end – lacking amino acids, vitamins, minerals, pectin and fiber. This lack of nutrition is perceived as a foreign (dangerous) chemical to the immune system causing a host of health-related problems such as, obesity and disease-promoting cellular inflammation.

High fructose corn syrup is made from corn starch that does not have enough sugar in it naturally to be called a sweetener – so the corn must be altered in a lab and only then is fructose chemically bonded to make it sweet. Of course, the corn that’s used is genetically modified – adding to the toxic burden within the human body.

Can you believe they call this crap “natural”?

Artifically-created fructose is processed in the body through the liver, rather than digested in the intestines and this is what makes fructose a hazardous chemical. Just to be clear – no one should be eating this stuff – ever!

The untold dangers of eating high fructose corn syrup (HFCS)

A study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry claimed; when HFCS is heated it forms toxic substances such as hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF). Several products with HFCS were tested by an agricultural research group which found this toxic chemical and discovered that HMF breaks down into other substances even more deadly.

Researchers have established that the toxic substances within high-fructose corn syrup have led to “colony collapse disorder”, a mysterious disease, which has killed at the very least one-third of the honeybee population in the United States. It seems some beekeepers feed it to bees to increase honey production. This is important data since HMF has been linked to DNA damage in humans.

The potential dangers are great considering that high fructose corn syrup is subjected to high temperatures and consumed in such high quantities within Western diets.

Modern food manufacturing promotes disease and early death

Shocking, but true, the Environmental Health journal reveals that researchers have discovered one of the deadliest substances known to man (within HFCS) – mercury! Make no mistake about it – HFCS places unwanted stress on the liver; kidneys; brain and immune system.

To make HFCS, junk food producers use caustic soda to separate the corn starch from the kernel. Caustic soda is produced in industrial chlorine plants, which are many times contaminated with mercury. The research, mentioned before, looked at 20 samples of corn syrup and found mercury in nine of the 20 samples. To me, if you do the math, that equates to nearly 50 percent of all food products containing HFCS being laced with mercury.

The real reason HFCS is so deadly to human health

There is an accumulating body of clinical evidence demonstrating that the combination of ingredients used to make high fructose corn syrup do not work naturally within human physiology. In fact, HFCS is a major reason why satiety levels are never achieved by eating processed, junk food. Allow me to explain.

Resistant starch, a type of carbohydrate, found in many natural foods such as, fruits, vegetables, grains and legumes are not entirely broken down by the body because it resists the process hence the name “resistant”. This starch passes into the large intestine intact just the way fiber does. Once it reaches the large intestine – it is fermented, which creates a beneficial fatty acid called butyrate which causes stored body fat to be used for fuel.

Processed foods threaten our genetic integrity

Resistance starch supports a healthy metabolism by helping to shift the expression of more than 200 genes within the intestinal tract – which impact metabolism, satiety and insulin sensitivity.

High fructose corn syrup doesn’t do any of that – it goes straight to the liver and bypasses the intestines. This dramatic change of cellular fuel is one of the biggest reasons we have an obesity epidemic – worldwide. So far, corporations have spent more than $50 million dollars on deceptive television advertising in an attempt to convince consumers that HFCS is “corn sugar.” Nothing could be further from the truth!

The lists of foods to avoid are factory-farmed (conventional) meats; condiments such as ketchup, soups, sodas, crackers, cookies, cakes, breads, salad dressing, jellies, peanut butter, and fast food. Be good to yourself – buy as much organic and natural whole foods as possible. By avoiding processed foods – you’ll experience health benefits beyond imagination.

    Only them ? Dont forget the FDA is supposed to protect Americans against bad food and bad drugs. The US government guilty of murdering many million Americans ? Absolutely. Dont forget the mass murderers in charge of the FDA and your federal government which allows the crime. THere are so many things criminal in Washington DC that corn syrup is just one the numerous mass murders committed by the FDA.

    Amen Marc Authier!! They KNOW damn good and well that their manufactured liver toxic poisons are juts that LIVER TOXIC POISONS! THEE most medicinal plant that grows on this PLANET has been lied about for 90 years and peoples lives have been ruined and some have been killed for being in possession of this NON TOXIC VEGETABLE..the Cannabis Hemp Plant. Right now the news is EXPLODING world wide about the miraculus healings by juicing this plant raw or eating the Cannabis Oil! 4th stage cancer victims given months to live..CANCER FREE in a matter of months!! And not just cancer..its diabetes..copd adhd RA…all disease! Its a wrecking ball on all disease while repairing your bodies immune system so it can heal itself. PLEASE do this today..research your bodies “Endocannabinoid System” Face Book “Rick Simpson” EVERYONE MUST GET THIS INFO. The Global Leaders of the World have done everything in their power to keep this plant ILLEGAL! Heaven forbid we should have a plant that would replace all our fossil fuels and Big Pharmas poisons almost OVERNITE! *THIS* is why for 90 years we have been lied to about this wonderful Gift From GOD. We must ban together and expose these murderers to save us and OUR PLANET!
