link diet high in fructose, a form of sugar found in sweetened soft drinks and junk food, raises blood pressure in men.

Two recent studies provided the first evidence that fructose helps raise blood pressure. One study further suggested that people who consume junk foods and sweetened soft drinks at night could gain weight faster than those who don't.

Fructose accounts for about half the sugar molecules in table sugar and in high-fructose corn syrup, the sweetener used in many packaged foods.

In some circles these days, it’s becoming increasingly fashionable to claim that the many ills attributed to fructose are overblown. After all, you might hear, it’s just sugar, no better or worse than any other sort of sugar, right? It’s a natural substance found in fruit, after all, so how bad could it possibly be?

The delusion that fructose is an acceptable form of sugar is quite prevalent even in many nutritional circles.

You can thank the Corn Refiners Association for that line of thought. The CRA has been pouring millions of dollars into an ad campaign designed to create the notion that fructose, and especially high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), is nothing more than a harmless snack.

This could not be farther from the truth.

Fructose contains no enzymes, vitamins or minerals, and it leeches micronutrients from your body. A mountain of evidence has accumulated demonstrating that it is absolutely terrible for your health.

Fructose and Fruit

It is true that fructose is found in fruit. However, eating small amounts of whole fruit does NOT provide tremendous amounts of fructose and is not be a problem for most people, unless diabetes or obesity is an issue. Berries, especially blueberries, raspberries and cranberries, are some of the healthiest fruits around, as they are loaded with powerful antioxidants -- and have relatively small amounts of sugar.

But in fact, you can get too much fructose from fruit sources, especially if you consume your fruit in the form of juice.

When fruit is intact and whole, its fiber will somewhat moderate the release of fructose into your bloodstream, as well as somewhat moderate insulin release. Fruit juice contains little to no fiber -- but it does contain about eight full teaspoons of sugar per eight-ounce glass. This fructose is brought rapidly in your body, promoting obesity and other problems. Humans were not meant to drink their calories.

Even Worse Than Table Sugar

Table sugar (sucrose) is far from being a food I recommend; all sugar can cause serious health problems. But the fact is, fructose is the worst of the lot. It is metabolized to fat in your body far more rapidly than any other sugar, and, because most fructose is consumed in liquid form, as fruit juice or as soda, its negative metabolic effects are significantly magnified.

Those negative effects include:

Metabolic Syndrome
An increase in triglycerides and LDL (bad) cholesterol levels
Liver disease
And now, according to the research described above, it appears that fructose can lead to high blood pressure as well. High blood pressure is a serious health concern that can cause heart disease and increase your risk of having a stroke. It’s especially danger­ous because it often has no warning signs or symptoms.

High Fructose Corn Syrup

Until the 1970’s, most sugar was sucrose derived from sugar beets or sugar cane. But sugar from corn, especially HFCS, is now more popular because it is much less expensive to produce. As a result, the use of HFCS in the U.S. diet increased a staggering 10,673 percent between 1970 and 2005! HFCS also contains nearly twice the fructose of the sugars that came before it.

HFCS is now present in a dizzying array of products, especially processed foods, and it is the sweetener used in most sodas. It is a prime factor behind the current obesity epidemic, which is largely fueled by sugary sweet soft drinks.

Soft drinks are the leading source for calories in America, and the major reason why about 9 percent of average dietary energy intake in the United States now comes from fructose. Think about that -- very nearly one in ten calories! Would a meal look healthy to you sitting on your plate if nearly 10 percent of it were pure sugar?

But HFCS isn’t only a problem because it’s a nutrient-free source of endless calories. It also harms organs like your liver and pancreas, leading to bone loss, anemia and heart problems, just to name a few. HFCS has been found to inhibit the action of your immune system's white blood cells. Unbound fructose, which is found in large quantities in HFCS, can interfere with your heart's use of minerals such as magnesium, copper and chromium.

Still think fructose is harmless?

Avoiding Fructose

The average American drinks an estimated 60 GALLONS of soda every year, and one extra can of the sweet stuff can add up to 15 extra pounds over the course of a year. Right off the bat, you can greatly reduce your fructose intake by eliminating all soda and sugary drinks from your life.

Since HFCS is present in many processed foods, to avoid it completely you need to focus your diet on whole foods. And if you do purchase any processed foods, make sure you read the label -- and put it back on the shelf if it lists high fructose corn syrup as an ingredient.

However, like most areas in life, you want to choose your poisons carefully. Even though fructose is clearly something you want to avoid, except for the small quantities obtained through the moderate consumption of whole fruit, it is not as bad as artificial sweeteners. Artificial sweeteners damage your health even more rapidly than HFCS. So ideally avoid ALL sodas, even diet sodas.

One of the best steps you can take to improve your health is to replace all soda and sweet drinks with pure, clean water.

also would like to add if you have really high blood pressure don't exercise too much take nice walks in the park instead..until you are able to lower diastolic and systolic pressure to normal range..then you can exercise if you have an aneurysm limit exercise activity as rise in blood pressure can burst aneurysm..signs you may have an aneurysm are balding, enlarged head due to pressure build up of aneurysm headaches and migraines. and no sauna or hot baths as it can increase blood pressure considerably causing heart attack or stroke! WHEN blood pressure is lowered to normal levels you may spend a few minutes in sauna..don't jump into cool water after sauna as this creates an unsafe drop in blood pressure!!

Did the 20th century make us big-headed? Maybe so, since forensic anthropologists at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville found that white Americans' heads are getting bigger and size, that is.

The researchers studied about 1,500 skulls that dated from the mid-1800s through the 1980s. They noticed that the skulls gradually became larger, taller, and narrower. As a result, faces have become longer.

"The surprising thing is the skull size increase has not been documented in modern Americans," researcher Dr. Richard Jantz told The Huffington Post. "We might have suspected that that was happening but this documents it ... The shape of the skull has also changed rather dramatically. In fact, shape change has been more dramatic than size change.”

Avid bikers beware
If you feel tingling or numbness in your penis, stop riding for a week or two. These are warning signs that your bike riding could lead to erectile problems. Even if you don’t feel any warning symptoms, it’s a good idea to change your position and take breaks during long rides.
- See more at:

Basically, if get pain or numbness in your penis, your not positioned on the bike correctly. Get someone experianced to help you evaluate your riding position.
A wide padded seat and very upright position might be a band aid solution until you get the positioning problem fixed, but it will cause other issues over time.
Most good bike shops can help you position yourself better if you are serious about riding, and if you're not serious, you probably don't ride enough to experiance any problem.

It's a great cardio workout without ruining the knees ( or any other part of the body) if done correctly.

Cane sugar is made from sucrose which is 50% glucose 50% fructose,
your liver breaks fructose down into fatty acids and also an aldehyde which remains in your liver as a little present for the pharmaceutical companies.
The HFCS is about 55% fructose and 42% glucose 3% water, agave is also rubbish as that's at least 70% fructose,

sweeteners fool your body into thinking its getting sugar so it removes all the sugar from your blood and then doesn't get any causing a drop in your blood sugar level they are also highly toxic I think splenda causes leukemia and aspartame which is in all low sugar products and the majority of chewing gum is responsible for around 95 different diseases in the body The FDA were repeatedly not allowing aspartame until Reagan came in and sacked the president of the FDA and replaced him with someone who allows the use of aspartame.

even the raw honey you have to be careful of now as they are feeding the bees sugar as the pollen is getting less and less there's a 25% to 50% bee reduction in the world thanks to Monsanto's pesticides, canola spray decimates bee populations and the dumb bee keepers are taking their bees to feed on the pollen right next to these canola fields here in NSW Australia.
When your body gets its energy from glucose your heart beats at the wrong rate sugar is a poison.
your body is meant to run off of a fat based energy called ketones

fats are not bad for you its the ldl cholesterol that is bad..grain fed beefs are high in ldl cholesterol and no omega grass fed beef is high in omega 3 and lower in ldl

Cholesterol is cholesterol. Low density lipoproteins are aggregates of transport proteins, fatty acids and cholesterol which mainly carry cholesterol into your body for distribution, high density lipoproteins collect unused fats and return them to the liver.

But in both cases, the cholesterol molecule is the same. "Good" and "bad" cholesterol is a dumbed down term to make things easier to understand, at the cost of losing most of the information.

You don't eat LDL. You don't eat HDL. You eat cholesterol and fatty acids. Your liver and intestines make fat transport protein aggregates like chylomicrons, LDL and HDL out of them. There is no "good" or "bad" cholesterol, because all cholesterol is the same molecule. You've got a fat transport balance that's formed by LDL carrying fat out into your body, and HDL carrying it back for disposal. In general, you want that working on the side of HDL.

we need cholesterol not ldl cholesterol. ldl cholesterol creates oxidation in the arteries leading to plaque buildup

Low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol enters dysfunctional endothelium (which is damaged by smoking or diabetes, for example, and this is reflected by decreased nitric oxide (NO) production) and is oxidized by macrophage and smooth muscle cells. Release of growth factors and cytokines, and upregulation of adhesion molecules, attracts further monocytes. Foam cells (arising from lipid-laden macrophages) accumulate and smooth muscle cells proliferate, which results in the growth of the plaque. Inflammatory cell infiltration, smooth muscle cell death through apoptosis, and matrix degradation through proteolysis (by matrix metalloproteinases- MMPs) generate a vulnerable plaque with a thin fibrous cap and a lipid-rich necrotic core. Plaque rupture can cause thrombosis which might be sufficient to cause vessel occlusion (or blockage).

sugar is a huge problem also calcium adults don't need much calcium if at all..calcium buildsup as plaque on arterial walls..ldl cholesterol causes oxidation of arteries which makes it worst..

a reply to: Bedlam

your right you don't eat ldl or hdl.. but its a FACT that grain fed beef raises your LDL cholesterol considerably more then grassfed sources.

"Grassfed beef has a lower fat content per equal weights of beef than a grain-fed animal. The consumption of the leaner grassfed beef actually lowers LDL cholesterol levels in humans,1 whereas grain-fed beef consumption raises LDL cholesterol levels. This can lead to blood vessel plaques. In addition, grassfed beef has two to four times more omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed beef.2 These omega-3 fatty acids are essential for healthy brain and heart function.3 “Brain and nervous tissue abnormalities figure prominently in diseases linked to omega-3 fatty acid deficiency and omega-6 excess."

The Deadly Link Between Heart Disease and Alzheimer’s
If the threat of a heart attack is not enough to compel Americans to trade in their cheeseburgers and recliners for salmon and exercise bikes, how about mounting evidence that cardiovascular disease may greatly increase one’s risk of developing mind-destroying Alzheimer’s disease?"

I would not be surprised if most accidents are due to drivers suffering from atherosclerosis in there system..Not having enough blood supply to brain can create lapse in judgment and lack of attention span.
here is a connection between heart disease in young children who undergo surgery and attention deficit disorder:

Children who have open-heart surgery at younger than 1 year of age are more likely than healthy control subjects to have a SNAP-IV score suggestive of ADHD when they reach school age.

vitamin c is essential for collagen synthesis and prevention of ldl cholesterol oxidation of the arteries. when the cardiovascular system gets clogged up all sorts of problems arise such heart attacks,strokes and in some cases even cancer how is that most animals are able to produce this essential vitamin in there liver and not humans? strange don't you think? Also i suspect most of the other causes of dead in this list are due to damage to the cardiovascular system. Alzheimer's I believe is due to arterial plaque buildup in the brain creating a loss of blood supply to the brain.
top causes of death to American's

Top 10 leading causes of death
The top 10 leading causes of death in the US are below together with the most recent statistics and facts:

causes of death
Annually there are around 2,515,458 deaths registered in the US with the leading top 10 causes accounting for nearly 75% of all deaths.
Heart disease
Cancer (malignant neoplasms)
Chronic lower respiratory disease
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases)
Accidents (unintentional injuries)
Alzheimer's disease
Diabetes (diabetes mellitus)
Influenza and pneumonia

Can bipolar disorder be viewed as a multi-system inflammatory disease?

Patients with bipolar disorder are known to be at high risk of premature death. Comorbid cardio-vascular diseases are a leading cause of excess mortality, well above the risk associated with suicide. In this review, we explore comorbid medical disorders, highlighting evidence that bipolar disorder can be effectively conceptualized as a multi-systemic inflammatory disease.

So what you are saying is that a person in Japan who eats radioactive salmon will live longer than me eating home grown red meat? That remains to be seen...even the percentages of the average life span in those counties in like 30 years when the new study will be presented on the subject. Oh and don`t get me wrong...I love salmon.

I`m surprised you forgot to mention drinking water which flushes the toxins out of body. In fact it encourages your system to flush your toxins through urine. It`s good to drink a natural juice from fruits but you shouldn`t overdose. 1 or 2 per day is more than enough, the rest should be just water without any vitamins and supplements unless you want to stuff your body with junk material. Agree with excercises and sauna, another way to detox through your pores in skin by sweating.

Also use sea salt instead of rock salt because it contains iodine in the most natural form and since our bodies can`t produce it on its own, we need to have it in our daily diets. And why is iodine important? Because it enables the production of thyroid hormone which helps the body to use energy, stay warm and keep the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs(including your treasure) working as they should. Not saying rock salt doesn`t contain it, it does because it is iodized industrially but doesn`t contain it naturally. For me personally this means like taking pills of vitamin C instead of eating fresh vitamin C rich fruits or vegetables.

And if you don`t believe me that iodine has anything to do with erectile dysfunction, try n google "erectile dysfunction iodine related"

Also avoid stress at all costs, that is the main thing no one will tell you. You can suffocate yourself physically and mentally by it. And eventually it will take many years away from you....
