Concerns about High Fructose Corn Syrup

High fructose corn syrup (HFCS) is an artificial sweetener commonly found in processed foods, including juice, soda, ketchup, tomato sauce, canned fruit, and frozen pizza. HFCS and other artificial sweeteners are influential in the development of sugar craving and over-consumption of excessively sweet food. Regular consumption of HFCS has been linked to an increase in fatty liver disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Recent research provides evidence that the doubling of childhood asthma prevalence from 1980 to 1995 and its continued rise may be associated with the proliferation of HFCS in the American food supply. Read labels and avoid consumption of added sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial sweeteners, and you will soon appreciate the great taste of many natural, whole foods.
