Beware of Foods That Contain Toxic Amounts of Fructose!

Sweet, tasty, and satisfying – these are the usual words used to describe sugar.

I, on the other hand, think of sugar as the exact opposite: addictive, dangerous, and deadly.

Of all the foods capable of inflicting harm in your body, sugar is one of the most detrimental.

A sea of research now suggests that fructose, especially high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), is taking a devastating toll on your health. It is a MAJOR factor in the increasing rates of obesity and chronic diseases all over the world.

But if fructose is wreaking havoc on everyone's health, then why is it still found in a wide array of food products today?

Appalling Facts About Fructose

Fructose is a sweetener usually derived from corn, and is now the single largest calorie source of Americans. Fifty-five percent of sweeteners used by food and beverage manufacturers today are made from HFCS, because it's cheaper and 20 percent sweeter than regular table sugar (sucrose). In fact, the number one source of calories in the United States today is soda, which is sweetened with large HFCS amounts.

It is unsurprising that an average American now consumes roughly 47 pounds of cane sugar and 35 pounds of high-fructose corn syrup every year.

I believe that this is a cause for alarm, considering that sugar, particularly fructose, is a potent pro-inflammatory agent that creates advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and speeds up the aging process. Fructose also leads to insulin resistance and the growth of fat cells around your vital organs, which are risk factors of chronic diseases.

Just take a look at the wide array of health conditions that fructose is linked to:

  • Insulin resistance and obesity
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Elevated triglycerides and LDL (bad) cholesterol
  • Depletion of vitamins and minerals
  • Cardiovascular disease, liver disease, cancer, arthritis, and gout

And here's the sad truth: not everyone is aware that fructose lurks in most processed foods and fast foods, even in those that have been touted "sugar-free" or "low-calorie"!

Just How Much Sugar is In Your Food?

Fructose is one of the most pervasive ingredients used in various foods today – it hides in almost all processed foods, from pretzels, bologna, cheese spread, and baked goods, to condiments like Worcestershire sauce.

You might even be surprised to know that some so-called "health foods" also contain large amounts of fructose – even surpassing the amount of sugar in a Twinkie!

Even infant formulas now contain as much sugar as one can of soda – meaning, babies just a few months old are already being fed this toxic substance.
