Low cost sweetener – high cost health

High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is the single most popular sweetener used by food manufacturers. It is cheaper and much sweeter than regular sugar but is also much more dangerous to your health than sugar. The average American consumes up to a half-cup HFCS every day. Interestingly, the spike in the consumption of HFCS has paralleled the spike in obesity over the last 30 years. The cheapest way to manufacture HFCS is by the low-cost, mercury-cell technology. This outdated method leaves mercury present in half of the foods that are made with HFCS according to a 2009 study. Furthermore, HFCS is metabolized exclusively by the liver which leaves the burden of detoxing the body of HFCS totally on liver – like it has nothing better to do… The problem really compounds when the liver sluffs the GMO-rife HFCS into fat cells when it can’t keep up with the toxic load.
