Contrary to what commercials say, high fructose corn syrup and sugar aren’t the same thing to your body, although cancer cells seam to love it. Fructose is in everything! Read the labels, they put it in most bread for heaven sake! Why do they need to make our bread sweet? Did you know that when something says “reduced fat” or “fat free” that most of the time they add high fructose corn syrup as a flavor enhancer?
So next time you see one of those commercials with a nice lady standing out in the corn field telling you that your body doesn’t know the difference between regular sugar and corn sugar, throw something at the screen and yell booooo. Sometimes I just hate the processed food industry. As a nation they’ve made us fat and when they get their fingers caught in the cookie jar, instead of changing they run a P.R. commercial.
Here are some excerpts from the article on the Natural News Website:
(NaturalNews) “The link between fructose consumption and many forms of cancer are quite evident, as this form of sugar derived from fruit provides fuel to cancer cells, causing them to divide and proliferate. Fructose is an inexpensive sweetener used in many processed foods and drinks and is most frequently found in its super-charged form, high fructose corn syrup. You can dramatically lower your risk for developing many of the most deadly types of cancer as you naturally lose weight by diligently reading nutrition labels to eliminate fructose from your diet.”
“Fructose Promotes Cancer Proliferation”
“For some time, medical researchers have known that sugar in the form of glucose is the main energy source which cancer cells use to initiate. Information published in the journal Cancer Research shows that cancer cells use glucose and fructose in different ways to fuel growth, and fructose specifically provides the mechanism which leads to cellular accelerated proliferation and metastasis. They conclude that restricting both glucose and especially fructose are essential to cancer prevention and controlling existing disease.”
“Metabolic Syndrome and Excess Weight Blamed on High Fructose Diet”
“It`s no secret that waistlines have been expanding at disproportionate rates over the past half century, and volumes of scientific evidence now point to the primary suspect in this epidemic, fructose. Our body metabolizes fructose differently than glucose, and it doesn`t trigger the same insulin response compared with sugar or simple carbohydrates.”
“Our appetite hormones, leptin and ghrelin are thrown off balance and don`t register fructose calories as energy consumed, meaning we`re much more inclined to keep eating. As this process continues over the course of many years, it leads to insulin resistance, metabolic disorder and contributes to the rising rates of obesity experienced by many unsuspecting people.”
