It is now apparent, as we are all well aware, that sugar in excess is very unhealthy for us to consume and can lead to obesity and diabetes. Sugar, or high fructose corn syrup, can be found in almost any processed or packaged food sold today in America. Particularly in soft drinks, fruit juices, baked goods and condiments.
High fructose corn syrup is made from corn and goes through a series of processes that eventually turns it into the extremely popular sweetener that is known as high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) or glucose/fructose. While HFCS is made from corn, it is still a type of sugar. However, this sweetener is much sweeter than sugar.
The Sugarcrashers have crashed Facebook and YouTube by uploading an interesting video from the time of their recording: 1998.
After years of blaming fat for heart disease, sugar is increasingly coming to light as a heart killer.
It used to be that researchers believed the human body could evolve and adapt to greater amounts of refined sugar consumption.
How quickly a couple pounds per year per person has increased to nearly 200 pounds per year.
This is not to demonize the role of glucose/fructose in the body – it is to point out a major imbalance that isn't guided by choice, but by profit. White refined sugar (which is now mainly from genetically modified sugar beets) is stripped of all its nutrients which makes the body work hard to neutralize it. It creates a “high” (or a debt) which must become a “low.”

Sugar in excess is not good for you, but if you are making your own cookies, sweets, sauces and dressings at least you can control the amount that you are putting in. If you are a person who likes soda, there are more natural types of soda that you can buy that contain real cane sugar and no artificial colors and flavors. HFCS is easily avoidable, you just have to kick the addiction to it. Try replacing water for soda for even just one week and it won’t take long before you physically feel a difference, and if you usually drink a lot of soda, you’ll probably lose a few pounds too!
Also, please don’t try to avoid sugar altogether, because then you may get stuck on sugar alternatives and sugar substitutes. When a product is openly advertising as “sugar free,” or “diet” and it is generally a sweet product, be weary. These products most likely contain aspartame, which is also a neuro-toxin and is dangerous for you to consume.
With all this information that is now available about the dangers of sugar and high fructose corn syrup it is truly a wonder how substances such as these are added in such abundance to the foods that we eat everyday. Being educated and well informed on topics such as these is our first step to reclaiming our personal freedom.
