MONDAY, Jan. 26 (HealthDay News) — Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury, which was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products where HFCS is the first- or second-highest labeled ingredient, according to two new U.S. studies.

“This chemicalized fructose is sweeter than sugar in an unhealthy way, and is digested differently in a bad way. Research has shown that “high-fructose corn syrup” goes directly to the liver, releasing enzymes that instruct the body to store more fat! This elevates triglyceride (fat in the blood) levels and elevates total cholesterol levels. New research indicates that HFCS fools the body by turning off the body’s sense of feeling full, when eating products containing it. Therefore, persons tend to eat more than they would. Tests also indicate that chromium levels are lowered by this chemical and contribute to the advance of type 2 diabetes.” click here for the rest of the article
