High-Fructose Corn Syrup

After people began learning the dangers of high-fructose corn syrup, the Corn Refiners Association spent $30 million last year to convince us that it was a harmless - even healthy - product. But before you go believing the ads, remember that they're just that - advertisements written and funded from the organization that profits from you consuming HFCS.

Instead of taking their word for it, draw your own conclusions by conducting your own research and reading articles and studies conducted by objective physicians, researchers and organizations that you trust.

Just learning about high-fructose corn syrup? This article on Yahoo outlines some of the main concerns with this product and is a great stepping stone to get started with your own research. Many thanks to Tara for sharing it!

  2. The first time I saw one I thought it was some kind of joke. LOL!
