According to an article in USAtoday, (http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2009-01-27-corn-syrup_N.htm) High Fructose Corn Syrup contains mercury at least 50% of the time.
All this time everybody was just looking at vaccinations being the culprit of mercury poisoning, and we have been feeding it to our kids thinking they would be peachy.
Seriously, this is waking people up. Or I hope it is.
HFCS already contributes to diabetes and obesity (http://www.diabeteshealth.com/read/2008/08/20/4274/the-dangers-of-high-fructose-corn-syrup?section=306). Our bodies to not recognize that HFCS is a sugar and then does not trigger the hormone in our brain that tells us we are full. Thus causing one to over eat or to crave foods that are not good for us.
With this new finding of mercury being in HFCS, I pray that the FDA does in fact demand that something be done.
Our family has already removed as much HFCS out of our diet as possible. (Bread is our hardest thing) We eat as natural a diet as possible. Fruits, Nuts, and Vegetables mostly with limited meat.
In our home we have noticed a difference in behaviors. When there is no violations of HFCS, red 40, and milk for those intolerant our behaviors are much better and the kids can focus on their school work and do better.
What's in your food?
Will you be a voice to get regulations changed?
