Why We’re Fat And Sick

June 26, 2012 by  

There is a reason Americans are fat and sick. It’s called high fructose corn syrup.

High fructose corn syrup is a cheap non-food filler. It contains no nutrition — only calories. It is, as a report in The Guardian describes, a highly sweet, gloppy syrup produced from surplus corn that is incredibly sweet.

HFCS was discovered in the 1950s; by the 1970s, a means had been devised to mass produce it. It quickly began to be included in every processed food made: pizza, coleslaw, meat, bread, cakes, candies, soft drinks, etc. It was cheap to make and could be included in everything, making the production of all food cheaper.

HFCS does four things:

  • It blocks the assimilation of calcium. Have you ever heard of the osteoporosis epidemic in America? Most Americans chase their calcium supplement with a drink containing HFCS. Almost everyone over age 50 suffers from a dangerous loss of calcium.
  • HFCS causes cancer in test animals. It predisposes humans to cancer.
  • As a synthetic sugar, it bypasses the pancreas. This eventually causes the pancreas to shut down, leading to diabetes. Harvey Wiley, the first head of the Bureau of Chemistry (the forerunner of the Food and Drug Administration), warned of the deceptive marketing of glucose (which preceded HFCS) and other adulterated corn products and their introduction into food. He predicted a diabetes epidemic.
  • It causes obesity and is highly addictive.

The FDA approves its use, yet claims to look out for our health. It is a world-class scam and attack on people’s health.
