"Sugar Crush is an intriguing detective story weaving the food industry, processed foods, marketing, well-meaning but mis-guided, nutritional science into a conspiracy that places sugar at the center scene of many of our most common diseases and disabilities. While the food industry will not like the information contained in Sugar Crush, readers interested in their own health, and the health of their families, will treasure this book and use it as a roadmap to improved health."

HFCS and Your Heart

HFCS and uncontrolled growth of the heart

Newly Discovered Danger of High Fructose Corn Syrup is Alarming!  New scientific studies reveal how high fructose corn syrup-containing foods are causing yet another unwanted side effect – heart failure.

It started with the replacement of glucose with fructose, including high fructose corn syrup, which tastes sweet but doesn’t elevate sugar levels in the blood.  Good, right?  Wrong.  HFCS is bad all over.

This article by Natural Society lays it out pretty succinctly.

“The liver converts fructose directly into fat. People who consume lots of fructose end up developing high blood pressure, suffering from obesity, and developing insulin resistance, among other health issues. Doctors usually call this metabolic syndrome – and for some time, they couldn’t figure out why so many Americans were so overweight.”

How does this affect the heart?

“Unknown previously, but verified through their research and recently published in Nature, fructose has been discovered to be a key driver for a molecular mechanism that drives uncontrolled growth of the heart muscle. This condition can eventually lead to complete heart failure, as the heart literally outgrows its ability to function within the body.”

What’s more, since one consumes fructose to cause this issue, they likely have high blood pressure as well, which is a one-two punch to the cardiovascular system.

Why CORN is Killing Us: HFCS and GMO FOOD

This is a great read from growmap.com about the dangers of corn in the ubiquitous form of high fructose corn syrup, and the related problem of genetically modified foods (read, almost all corn is now genetically modified).

Until Michael Pollan’s book The Omnivore’s Dilemma few Americans would have guessed that there is corn in almost everything we eat including every individual component of a fast food meal to almost everything on the shelves in your grocery store – even in places you would never imagine.

Pollan follows each of the food chains that sustain us—industrial food, organic or alternative food, and food we forage ourselves—from the source to a final meal, and in the process develops a definitive account of the American way of eating.

Scary stuff!
