Chasing Better Health...
High fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated soybean/olive/coconut oil (or any other oil that's hydrogenated for that matter) are two of the worst two things a human being could intake. Companies hydrogenate their products to to minimize the cost. Rather than use just plain oil they take the easy way out by using unnatural chemicals to expand the amount of oil that they are using. As a result the hydrogenation has been linked to the high rate of cancer in this country. Usually in the ingredients of a product you will find the term partially hydrogenated which is just as bad. Anytime you read partially anything it is a warning sign.
High fructose corn syrup is a cheap processed sugar. It's like crack sugar. They take regular corn syrup and chemically make it much sweeter so they can make mass amounts of sweetener at low costs. This process has been linked to the depletion of a human beings immune system. Lets put it this way, if you had a cold would you eat lots of sugar? Well imagine cracked out super sugar. This is totally unnecsaary. For example Hienz ketchup has high fructose corn syrup. Most bread companies use it as well. Bread! Wow!
The good news is we have a choice. In most quality grocery stores (Whole Foods) especially the ones in white or integrated neighborhoods you will find the organic/natural section. If you see these ingredients in the food that you buy simply walk to the natural section and you will find the same type of food without those deadly chemicals. It costs a little more but a doctor costs a lot more! And it tastes better without the chemicals.
Well, happy eating!
