This article by Dr. Mark Hyman explains about how high fructose corn syrup is not just plain sugar and how your body does know the difference. Please take the time to read through it and join me in a personal movement to eliminate chemicals from our diet.
…The current media debate about the benefits (or lack of harm) of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) in our diet misses the obvious. The average American increased their consumption of HFCS (mostly from sugar sweetened drinks and processed food) from zero to over 60 pounds per person per year. During that time period, obesity rates have more than tripled and diabetes incidence has increased more than seven fold. Not perhaps the only cause, but a fact that cannot be ignored.
