High-Fructose Corn Syrup.

What is High-Fructose Corn Syrup?

Well after reading an article by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger Editor of NaturalNews.com, I found out some interesting facts about High-Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) and its effects on the human body.

 

High-Fructose Corn Syrup was introduced into our foods starting in the 1980’s like soft drinks, ice cream and many other foods to replace sugar as a sweetener. It is estimated HFCS is used in over 80% of our processed foods today. Since the 1980’s Type-2 Diabetes has risen with the increased use of sweeteners, as has obesity.

 

Since the fructose in corn syrup does neither stimulate insulin secretion nor reduce the hunger hormone ghrelin, you will continue to feel hungry while the body converts the fructose into fat. The resulting obesity increases the risk of diabetes and other diseases. Since you obviously cannot expect to receive much help from those who only know how to treat the effects of illness and not its causes, you may need to take your health into you own hands.  Andreas Moritz

 

How many of you are taking medications for high cholesterol?  Here is a great Quote from Jack Challem about triglycerides: The growing prevalence of overweight and obesity correlates with the increase in consumption of high-fructose corn syrup. Fructose also increases blood levels of triglycerides, the “bad” low-density lipoprotein form of cholesterol, and the “very bad” very-low-density lipoprotein form of cholesterol. Furthermore, it raises blood pressure, which is associated with overweight and diabetes.

 

Michael T. Murray, ND, talks about carbohydrates in forms of sugar: More than half of the carbohydrates being consumed are in the form of sugars (sucrose, corn syrup, etc.) being added to foods as sweetening agents. High consumption of refined sugars is linked to many chronic diseases, including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Generally, the term “dietary fiber” refers to the components of plant cell wall and non-nutritive residues. Originally, the definition was restricted to substances that are not digestible by the endogenous secretions of the human digestive tract.

I hope this gives you some insight into one of many additives that goes into our processed foods. I’ve seen some TV ads about HFCS not being bad for us. What do you think? After reading this whole article I’m really going to watch what I eat more carefully.

 

Y’all have a great night.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is not that great, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin
