One Reason High Fructose Corn Syrup is NOT sweet!

Forget all those commercials claiming it's "nutritionally the same as sugar" and that it's "fine in moderation." There are many reasons why it's not good, including a recent article from the Washington Post saying that they found mercury in it...NOT GOOD! Check it out here:

  1. I noticed that one of your interests was homeopathy. I am new to blogger but intend on postings some interesting entries there that you might enjoy. Your blog is great.

  2. I killed HFCS from our diet a while ago and have been really encouraging my extended family to do so as well. Not only does not eating it change your appreciation for natural sweets, getting away from it for a while makes the chemical taste that much more apparent if it does sneak into your mouth again. I definitely don't miss it and it's surprisingly easy to find HFCS free foods if you take the time to read the packaging. This is one lifestyle change I'm very happy I've made :)
