Your Fast-Track to Heart Disease and Stokes ~ High Fructose Corn Syrup!
It looks and drips like honey, maple syrup, the real thing…but it is not. It’s probably because it has been deliberately made to look like this!
High fructose corn syrup can make your health even worse especially if you suffer from heart problems and/or blood sugar disorders.
There are several reasons for this.
High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS): What exactly is it ?
High fructose corn syrup is a cheap ingredient that food manufacturers add to their products to enhance the flavour.
The really bad news is that HFCS is a whole load of empty, dangerous sugary calories that your body just doesn’t need – especially if you have to control your blood sugar levels.
Because you may currently suffer from heart / cardiovascular disease (heart and brain are at risk of heart attacks and strokes) and the list goes on.
This pseudo-food can make your sugar cravings will go over the roof! And if you will be a prime candidate for obesity, diabetes and arthritis.
Sugar has also been known to feed cancer growth. Not nice, eh? Imagine you’re actually helping the greedy, cancer cells at their own game with this…?
This stuff can also make you hyper and stressed-up, leading to bouts of emotional eating. Do you raid the fridge at night? Or eat the whole box of KFC?
Even if you are in peak health, high fructose corn syrup can slowly undermine it over time if you consume it regularly.
Research: The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism
