    Sugar May Be Bad, But This Sweetener Is Far More Deadly

    Most of you already know this but this is pretty informative.

    Scientists have proved for the first time that fructose, a cheap form of sugar used in thousands of food products and soft drinks, can damage human metabolism and is fueling the obesity crisis.

    Fructose, a sweetener usually derived from corn, can cause dangerous growths of fat cells around vital organs and is able to trigger the early stages of diabetes and heart disease.

    Over 10 weeks, 16 volunteers on a controlled diet including high levels of fructose produced new fat cells around their heart, liver and other digestive organs. They also showed signs of food-processing abnormalities linked to diabetes and heart disease. Another group of volunteers on the same diet, but with glucose sugar replacing fructose, did not have these problems.

    We've had this discussion a few times.

    There is a difference between fructose from fruit and HFCS found as an additive or sweetener.

    Oh and I can quite safely say that using corn syrup as a sweetner is just plain stupid. It doesn't taste anywhere near as good as sugar cane. Chocolate is just so much better in countries that use real sugar.

    I've read that a long time ago aswell. Fructose has a lot of benefits but High Fructose Corn Syrup? thats shit is lame. Sometimes people think they are being healthy by getting canned fruit but they dont realize that it is drenched in HFCS.
