We know that High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS) has a bad effect in your body that limits the release of your insulin to lower your blood sugar levels. Now studies are showing that it contains high amounts of Mercury, which is toxic in all forms.
Americans consume about 12 teaspoons per day of HFCS, and teens and other high consumers can take in 80 percent more HFCS than average. This is alarming in a country where most of the foods we buy are sweetened with HFCS because it’s so cheap for the manufacturer’s to use.
Make sure to use extra care when grocery shopping to read the nutrition labels and look for natural sweeteners as oppossed to HFCS.
