High fructose corn syrup is a killer. The average person consumes over 60 pounds per year. Obesity rates have tripled and right along with it diabetes has seen a serious increase. But diabetes is increasing seven times its previous rate.
High Fructose corn syrup is not natural. The promoters of this un-natural sweetener say, “Sugar is sugar,” and “corn sugar or cane sugar, what’s the difference?”
Did you say CORN sugar??? That’s the high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) that’s causing some of our major health problems. And it’s made from genetically engineered corn. You know, the stuff that’s had its DNA altered with viruses and bacteria and all kinds of other junk.
According to Dr. Mark Hyman, author of the book, “The Blood Sugar Solution,”High doses of free fructose (HFCS) have been proven to literally punch holes in the intestinal lining allowing nasty byproducts of toxic gut bacteria and partially digested food proteins to enter your blood stream and trigger the inflammation that we know is at the root of obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, dementia, and accelerated aging. Naturally occurring fructose in fruit is part of a complex of nutrients and fiber that doesn’t exhibit the same biological effects as the free high fructose doses found in “corn sugar”.

Toxic gut bacteria comes from digesting GMO corn, the genetically engineered crap of Monsanto and company. This stuff is found in soft drinks, breads, sauces, salad dressings, breakfast and cereal bars, fruits and vegetables packed in liquid, and all your little processed snacks. Read the labels, if you see high fructose corn syrup, RUN!!! This stuff promotes obesity, diabetes and liver damage.
Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death, and a major cause of heart disease and stroke.
85.2% of people with diabetes are overweight. The number of people diagnosed in United States has increased 128% from 1988 to 2008.
According to the American Diabetes Association these are the statistics for diabetes in America:
Total prevalence of diabetes: 25.8 million children and adults in the United States—8.3% of the population—have diabetes.
Diagnosed: 18.8 million people Undiagnosed: 7.0 million people Prediabetes: 79 million people* New Cases: 1.9 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older in 2010. See more at: http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes- basics/statistics/#sthash.7f95KR These stats were reviewed February 2014.
Now you have to ask, why would our government allow the production of these toxic food products that they know have a negative impact on our health? How about, $245 billion in total medical costs in one year for diabetes alone. Money, money , honey.
What Can You Do???
That’s why it’s up to us, the consumer to fight for labeling so we know what we’re eating. We need to avoid all processed foods. High fructose corn syrup is a product made from genetically engineered corn. It’s in everything. If you want to avoid obesity that leads to diabetes, stop eating corn-based products made from glyphosate-exposed GE corn. And–you must stop eating animal products that were fed a diet of GE grain. Animals that are fed glyphosate-contaminated corn, alfalfa, soy and grass, got fatter faster and they stayed fatter longer.
In the same way Americans are getting fatter faster and staying fatter longer. The highest level of glyphosate is found in sugar and grain products. And because the animals have this grain as their main diet, animal products like butter, eggs, milk and are contaminated with glyphosate residues.
Check this out; according to the Cornucopia Institute, “the animals who had fed on GM corn were slightly larger, they ate slightly more, their intestines had a different micro-structure, they were less able to digest proteins, and there were some changes to their immune system.” This fact that ‘they were less able to digest proteins’ has huge implications in the biochemistry of amino acids necessary for all life processes. This not only may relate to a rise in obesity, but to increases in many modern diseases. These diseases include diabetes, digestive disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, colitis, autism spectrum disorders (ASD) (ADD), autoimmune diseases, sexual dysfunction, sterility, asthma, COPD and many more.”
The negative impact of these GE foods cannot be ignored. It will slowly, over time create inflammation, which damages our cellular system. Inflammation is known to be a precursor to just about every illness. Most diseases start in the gut with an autoimmune reaction that leads to systemic inflammation. Genetically Engineered foods cause that autoimmune reaction.
The Greek philosopher Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”
Let’s start with eating an anti-inflammation diet. Here’s a suggested one:
- Breakfast: oatmeal served with fresh berries and walnuts, with a cup of almond or hemp milk. Any organic whole grain cereal without sugar or corn.
- Snack on organic or local whole fruits, nuts, seeds, and fresh vegetables throughout the day instead of cookies and candy.
- Eat more “wild caught”fish (No farm raised fish), and less fatty grain-fed red meat.
- Stay away from deep-fried foods and bake or stir fry instead.
- Choose green, orange, and yellow organic or local vegetables for your side dishes.
- Drink plenty of water, fresh 100 percent (limited) organic vegetable juices, herbal teas and green tea.
Eating organic will decrease your toxic chemical overload. And don’t forget portion control. 🙂
Corn is a very high-glycemic grain. It raises the blood sugar. As I stated earlier, it is found in every product in the market and in those fast foods we love. Here is a list of some of the commercial corn foods:
Dressings– high fructose corn syrup Bakery– hydrogenated corn oil Cereals– modified corn starch, corn meal, high fructose corn syrup Meat-corn-fed beef, pork and poultry Farm-raised fish –corn meal

Just one final note: Yacon root extract is known for its ability to aid weight loss, curb the appetite, boost metabolism, stabilize blood sugar and it’s rich in antioxidants and has prebiotics and probiotics. *** http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81uhLIRxPpL._SL1500_.jpg
There’s also the “Miracle Tree,” Moringa Oleifera. Don’t quote me, but lives are being turned around using the nutrient dense plant. The medical benefits are phenomenal! I believe I have the insider track on the Best Moringa on the market. 🙂 Msg.me…
Now– I’m no doctor. But if I had diabetes, this is something I would try. I’m just saying…. 🙂
Let me hear from you.
