High Fructose Corn Syrup Knowledge Is Not A Sweet Drink

The High Fructose Corn Syrup Drink: Myths And Truths About Sweeteners

The internet has certainly helped us to get to the bottom of today’s problems. Any discussion about health will prompt a concern with high fructose corn syrup and probably the GMO industry. Many of us have ignored these health related topics because it seemed like the easy way out. However, after finally sitting down and reading some informative posts about these topics, this knowledge is not so sweet.

It’s time to investigate the safety of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS). What are those educated in the fitness industry saying?The High-Fructose Corn Syrup Is No Worse for You Than Table Sugar story may just be a myth after all.

Another informative post startled me. I wanted to hear more facts about high fructose corn syrup, and not the sugar-coated propaganda we are fed on television. Mark Hyman (MD) wrote an impressive piece in the Huffington Post concerning the debate over HFCS. If you want to read something and get enlighted, then read The Not-So-Sweet Truth About High Fructose Corn Syrup. I strongly encourage anyone to give this one a try. Bring your beverage with you…

Why should we give a hoot about HFCS? Well, a quick High-Fructose Corn Syrup 101 update may change how we feel about sweeteners. Oh, and please tell me obesity isn’t a problem in America. I believe it’s time that we inform ourselves with facts instead of what we are being told by the big corporations that sell us these tempting products.

And I’m not being hypocritical here. I too am a big fan of soft drinks and those unhealthy fast foods. I do think as we get older we should consider the effects of unhealthy foods and at least try to modify our eating habits.

I’m positive that we can do something about our health. Let’s take that challenge. Shall we?
