High fructose Easter

Read the ingredient label before you plop the Easter candy on the checkout belt. Watch out for high fructose corn syrup as it is often the first and main ingredient. High fructose corn syrup (HFCS), which is some 10X sweeter than sugar, is only metabolized in the liver and causes one heck of a toxic burden on the body. As if your liver didn’t have enough to do trying to rid you of chemicals and poisons that hit it daily… So, the liver tucks the HFCS away in fat until it can get around to processing it someday. Another problem with HFCS is that it is made with GMO corn that is engineered to destroy the guts of bugs that eat it – or the humans that eat it also – just a little slower. Finally, some manufacturers use mercury (yes, mercury) to process the corn to make it give up the fructose. Some of this mercury is “lost in process” and ends up – wait for it… – in your liver.
