HFCS is one of the worst things you could possibly consume. Try to quit drinking that garbage called sodapop for starters, you will cut your intake
of the HFCS by fifty percent right there. I avoid this stuff at all costs. All you have to do is cook your own food, using normal ingredients, and
stay away from any pre processed crap. Yes, it takes a FEW more minutes to cook real food than to microwave hot pockets or a frozen pizza, but first
of all everything tastes approximately a million times better. It's definitely worth the extra time just for that, let alone the health issues.
Everyone always wants to stop by my place right around dinnertime because they know we eat like kings all the time over here. I am a big guy, not
fat, and I eat a TON of food all the time, so they know there will always be leftovers.
This HFCS scam was started 100 percent as a way to screw over CUBA. Up until the criminal Batista govt, who were in bed with all the crooks in the US
govt, robbing their own people blind (sound familiar?), were overthrown, Cuba was the biggest producer of sugar in the world by far. They had a
wealthy robust economy for hundreds of years with this as their main, almost ONLY export. Of course, the fat cats were skimming all the profits, and
cutting in the more powerful crooks over here, while the people got nothing out of the deal except plenty of near slave wage jobs cutting the
So the main stranglehold that could be put on Cuba was to somehow stop buying the sugar from them. They have been under a complete embargo there for
over forty years now, an outright act of war in fact, and somehow they are still toughing it out, but that's another whole thread.
In order to pull this off, TPTB had to come up with a replacement for regular sugar, because subsidizing Big Sugar in Florida just could not produce
enough sugar beets to meet the demand. So they came up with HFCS. Better living through chemicals! Now I don't know about the rest of the world,
but down here in Mexico they have copied this American idea, even though they have no embargo against Cuba, and have HFCS in everything. You have to
read the iingredients of anything you buy in order to avoid it. After awhile you will learn which things DON"T have it , and stick to them.
I buy meat from the butcher, produce at the farmer's market, bread from the baker, and fish right off the fishing boats or catch them myself. No
soda, no premade anything, no breakfast cereal, no microwave crap, nothing from a can or bottle. I need to learn how to make my own ketchup and
mayonnaise and then I will be totally off it. It takes a little more time, and you don't want to cut into any of your TV time, do ya?
Speaking of microwaves, did you know that the USSR made it completely illegal to use a microwave for food in any way? Yeah, way back in 1973! Betcha
never heard THAT one, right? But that is worth another whole thread:
STAY OFF THE HFCS! IT KILLS! QUIT DRINKING SODA FOR STARTERS! It's easy to quit this stuff, even though you ARE addicted to it, and once you do
you will feel much better.
