Dangers of High Fructose Corn Syrup [+Corn Syrup]

Dangers of High Fructose Corn Syrup [+Corn Syrup]

While corrupt doctors and the FDA will say high-fructose corn syrup (and corn syrup) is safe in moderation, I'm here to tell you IT IS NOT!  Opting for natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup, or fruit juices are healthier options that can help you increase your Longevity Factor. 

High-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) + corn syrup has been linked to several potential health risks:

  1. Obesity: HFCS is high in calories and can contribute to weight gain when consumed excessively. It may also disrupt appetite regulation, leading to increased calorie intake.

  2. Type 2 Diabetes: Regular consumption of HFCS has been associated with insulin resistance, a key factor in the development of type 2 diabetes.

  3. Cardiovascular Disease: Excessive intake of HFCS may increase the risk of heart disease by raising levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol, triglycerides, and promoting inflammation in the body.

  4. Liver Damage: HFCS can contribute to non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a condition characterized by the accumulation of fat in the liver, which may progress to more severe liver damage over time.

  5. Metabolic Syndrome: HFCS consumption has been linked to an increased risk of metabolic syndrome, a cluster of conditions including abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar levels, and abnormal cholesterol levels.

  6. Risk of Gout: Some studies suggest that HFCS consumption may increase the risk of gout, a type of arthritis characterized by sudden and severe attacks of pain, swelling, and inflammation in the joints.

  7. Toxicity: HFCS may contain contaminants such as mercury, which can have harmful effects on health when consumed in high amounts.


NOTE: Corn Syrup while not as bad as high-fructose corn syrup, it is still a toxic sugar to your body, and should be avoided at all cost. Remember, it is a cheap additive- that is the only reason you still see it in our food supply.
