(HealthDay News) — Almost half of tested samples of commercial high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) contained mercury, which was also found in nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products where HFCS is the first- or second-highest labeled ingredient, according to two new U.S. studies.
My Commentary: Here’s yet ANOTHER reason to avoid the man-made poison referred to as “high-fructose corn syrup” (HFCS). It is nothing more than a cheap, pathetic substitute for natural, quality ingredients. Use unbleached cane sugar, honey and maple syrup instead. Sweeten meals with fruit whenever possible. Take daily steps towards boycotting this refined toxic compound.
