HFCS...can't say it enough.

IT IS NO GOOD! Please just make simple switches in your pantries and kitchens to help your health.
buy organic
eat fresh veggies...cooked, steamed, raw, JUST EAT THEM
lower your consumption of meat, but mostly make sure it is good meat, from a good source
watch our for GMO's
It isn't hard to just change a few things that will not make you spend more time in the kitchen or change the way you must shop. By just being conscious about the ingredients in your food and what you are buying your health will improve so much and other people around you will start changing and then the food market will change. It really is incredible what we can do ourselves in our own homes to improve our lives, others lives, and the environment.

'High Fructose Corn syrupis known by different names such as Maize syrup, high fructose corn syrup, fructose, corn sugar etc. It is a high calorie sweetener used in processed foods such as ketchup, jams, bread, salad dressings, ice creams and even soft drinks. Corn syrup is made by an enzymatic process from the glucose syrup derived from corn.

Over consumption of Fructose can alter the intracellular metabolism and accelerate the aging process. Because it is metabolized by the liver, fructose causes imbalance in the insulin levels in the blood. Also fructose converts to fat more than any other sugar, leading to abnormal weight gain and obesity. It is also known to raise the serum triglycerides levels in the blood, increasing the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Keep the above mentioned “dangerous” ingredients in mind next time when you go grocery shopping. Avoiding these and other such unsafe preservatives and coloring agents can make a world of difference to your and your family’s health.'
