In order to deceive and manipulate the general public,the Corn Industry continues to defend High Fructose Corn Syrup by spending millions on commercials.
Their advertising campaign claims that Medical and Nutrition Experts have determined it’s NOT unhealthy, and that it’s “no different than regular sugar.”
That’s just one of the reasons why they’ve been trying to change the name of HFCS to Corn Sugar.
Thank God the FDA finally said “No.”
However, many manufacturers continue to try to pull a fast one by using other fake names.
In addition to “corn syrup,” watch your food labels for…
– Maize syrup
– Glucose syrup
– Glucose/fructose syrup
– Tapioca syrup
– Dahlia syrup
– Fruit fructose
– Crystalline fructose
According to Wikipedia, in Canada they call it “Glucose-Fructose.”
In Europe, they call it “Isoglucose, Glucose-Fructose Syrup” or “Fructose-Glucose Syrup.”
HFCS (or any type of corn syrup) undergoes processing that converts its glucose into fructose, which turns it into 90% fat-storing fructose.
Hence the name: High Fructose Corn Syrup
And according to some sources, one third of all HFCS contains dangerous amounts of mercury.
– It’s cheap.
– It’s easy to hide inside your healthy foods.
– It’s highly inflammatory for your body.
– It’s horrible for your liver.
– It could lead you down the road to type 2 diabetes.
– It’s quickly absorbed and stored as fat on your body.
But one of the absolute WORST things HFCS does is destroy your leptin sensitivity by blocking the passage of leptin to your brain.
Leptin is a hormone produced in your fat cells and it communicates with your brain to help you manage cravings and control hunger.
It also helps regulate your metabolic rate.
When this particular hormone is functioning properly, you’ll also burn more fat.
In fact, the amount of belly fat and cellulite that you’re carrying on your body right now is determined primarily by your leptin sensitivity.
So in order to “turn on” your fat burning machines in your body you must increase leptin sensitivity by decreasing HFCS and sugar!
