The FDA is at it again, angering thousands of bloggers and people alike who believe in good health. Thanks to some pressure from the Corn Refiners Association, the wonderful little company that makes High Fructose Corn Syrup, (HFCS) apparently HFCS is considered natural.
This is probably the worst decision made by them yet.
Reasons why HFCS is NOT natural:
- The FDA said it wasn’t natural before they conveniently changed their minds.
- The process is more complicated than Dextrose, which isn’t considered natural.
- The complex process includes genetically altered ingredients.
Listen, I could go on and on, talking about things such as that HFCS is digested in the liver instead of the stomach, and preliminary research shows that yes, it could most definitely be the cause of the obesity epidemic, but instead I’m going to stop here.
The best health tip that could be given right now is don’t eat high fructose corn syrup. Don’t listen to the FDA.
So go ahead and give them a dramatic clap for doing what they do best- pleasing big companies.
