Here are 5 potential dangers from a diet containing high fructose corn syrup:
1. Significant risk of weight gain and obesity.
A recent study conducted at Princeton University found that rats that were fed HFCS gained
300% more quickly than those fed an equal or slightly larger dose of fruit derived sugar.
2. Increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Excessive amounts of sodas, energy drinks, and junk food isn't worth losing a foot, going blind, or harming your children.
3. Hypertension and elevated "bad" cholesterol levels
HFCS makes your heart fat! There is a strong link between the irresponsible consumption of
HFCS and elevated triglycerides and HDL or bad cholesterol. Together these can cause
arterial plague build up and lead to hypertension, heart disease, or stroke.
4. Long term liver damage
HFCS is processed by your liver and can be very destructive to it leading to fatty liver and
inability to process toxins.
5. Mercury exposure
HFCS is often loaded with high levels of mercury. A study conducted last year found mercury in50% of the samples tested.
