There are a string of commercials produced by the Corn Refiners Association that encourages the consumption of High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS). I’m speechless in very much the same way the actors in these commercials are, however for a very different reason. Watch for yourself.
I dare someone to ask me what’s wrong with HFCS. I can guarantee it won’t result in a blank stare. Here are a few facts about HFCS so you’re prepared to answer when someone asks you what’s wrong with HFCS:
- Studies have shown that half of the HFCS used is contaminated with mercury.
- HFCS has been linked to behavior disorders in children.
- HFCS can has been shown to a contribute to the rise of obesity & adult onset diabetes.
- HFCS is a chemically processed food additive that our bodies can become addicted to and left wanting more (which makes it hard to consume in moderation as the commercials encourage).
