Two Urgent Action Items to Stop Corporate Power Grabs and Protect Your Health

If you care about the quality of your food, and want to be able to identify genetically engineered (GE) foods, then this interview is of great importance. In it, Ben Beachy reveals important details about the imminent legislative threats that can seriously impair your ability to purchase healthy food.

You also need to be aware of an important and devastating development in the so-called Pompeo “DARK” Act that requires your immediate involvement.

Both of these dangerous pieces of legislation need your immediate action now so we can stop them in their tracks. This is a highly debated issue and it is one where your single call to a legislature can make the difference. We desperately need you to take action on this to preserve our food freedom.

The High Fructose Corn Syrup Problem

How can we avoid this horrible stuff when it’s in virtually every manufactured food product on the market?  Read labels!

On food labels as Fructose-Glucose in Canada, high-fructose sweeteners are also deceptively labeled as inulin, iso-glucose, dahlia syrup, tapioca syrup, glucose syrup, corn syrup, crystalline fructose, agave syrup, and even fruit fructose.

This excellent article on the Wellness Tips website explains the glucose-fructose problem.

Probably the biggest reason that high-fructose corn syrup is such a problem is that it is absolutely everywhere in our food supply, even in foods that one would not expect, resulting in us eating large quantities of the stuff, often completely unawares. The biggest HFC syrup culprits are soft drinks, fruit drinks (often sold in tetrapacks), and sports drinks, but it is also found in flavoured yogurts, frozen dinners / frozen food, canned food, breads, stuffing mixes, breakfast cereals, breakfast pancake/waffles, cookies/cakes, crackers, ice cream, children’s vitamins, cough syrup, candy bars, condiments like ketchup etc., drink mixes, jams, jellies, syrups, some meats, salad dressings, sauces and marinades, and snack foods and bars.

If you think this is overstating the problem, take a wander through your local grocery store and read a few labels at random.
