There are over 35 years of HARD empirical evidence of refined man-made fructose metabolizing to triglycerides and adipose tissue, UNLIKE the fructose
molecule linked to a glucose molecule, found in sucrose (cane or beet), which is converted to blood glucose.
Sucrose raises blood glucose and then crashes it, below fasting baseline, within 25 minutes of ingestions -- A FACT.
HFCS or crystalline fructose or hydrolyzed fructose from inulin, convert to triglycerides and adipose tissue, within 60 minutes of ingestion, not
blood glucose -- A FACT.
The cheapest ingredient in the American food chain (profit factor) after air, water and salt is HFCS -- A FACT.
In 1970, zero pounds of HFCS existed in the U.S. food chain, or the SEMANTICALLY legislated equivalent in the EU, 'iso-glucose,' which is High
Fructose Wheat Or Beet Syrup. Today HFCS is about 68 pounds per year per person in the USA -- FACT.
In 2005, if one looks at the actuarial curve on cardiovascular disease, obesity, hypoglycemia, and diabetes, they all parallel HFCS increase in the
food chain -- A FACT.
Corn starch converted to a man-made molecule falsely called 'fructose' is NOT sugar from cane or beet or metabolized the same -- A FACT.
MDs have no nutritional or metabolic training in med school -- A FACT.
MDs have no methodology in their teaching to prevent, as opposed to only treat -- A FACT.
Does HFCS significantly contribute to ill health in the U.S. food chain? Yes, follow the insurance companies scrambling in actuarial panic with a
sudden and unexplained spike in heart attack death pay-outs among baby boomers ingesting too much HFCS and telling MDs to warn patients to get off
soda and HFCS-laden prducts, for profit -- A FACT.
Above is from Dr. Mercola's website.
HFCS may not spike your sugar the way sucrose does, but it has many other systemic effects. Honestly sugar should be drastically minimized too.
